The Banizumbu Community

The Banizumbu community of kebbi state comprised majorly of farmers, traders, herds men etc. with the average population made up of the elderly. With approval from the state government, our team was able to provide quality health care services to members of the community. It was fulfilling providing selfless services to community members through medical care services even though we had to work till late nights. We were able to attend to 120 persons, thanks to the dedicated and selfless volunteers who are professionals in different areas of medicine.
