A Non governmental organization, Sani Bello Foundation, has provided free medical care to over 15,000 people in Niger State, North Central Nigeria.

The foundation has also conducted surgical operations on patients suffering from fibroid, vermiform appendix, goitre, lumps, hernia, hydrocele, thyroid, gynaecological disorders and eye diseases.

Dr Toth Joseph Dogo, the Head of the medical team, said the team had treated over 15,000 patients since inception eight years ago. He added that this year the team has already treated about 400 cases in the just two days out of the seven days that has been planned for the medical outreach.

The Director-General of Sani Bello Foundation, Dr Zakariya Ikani, says the Foundation is helping the less privileged in the society by rendering medical assistance which many beneficiaries are unable to provide for themselves due to lack of funds.

The Chairman of the foundation, Col. Sani Bello Rtd, says he was elated by the philanthropic services to his community.

Dr. Ikani says the foundation has embarked on the provision of free medical services to communities within and outside Kontagora Local Government Area of Niger State.

Ibrahim Muhammad, Project Coordinator of the Graceland Healthcare Development Foundation, a partner with Sani Bello Foundation, says they were elated to see this year’s edition of the medical outreach which he says is moving successfully without any hitches. He added that the services was a huge success for the past 16 years of their partnership with the Sani Bello Foundation.
