I was born and grew up in Africa; and playing soccer on my bear feet is one my favorite hobbies. I am leading a medical mission team comprising of physician, physician assistant, nurse practioner, nurse and 2 volunteers to the heart of Africa. We would taking medical supplies, mobile clinic equipments and OTC medications. Individually, we have come up with our contributions, but we still need $1000 each to cover expenses and we desperately need your help to accomplish this goal. Help us bring hope and healing to these children.
I am well aware of the of poor health, poor nutrition and poverty has on the well being of people. I have experienced cousins, my brother and sister died under unexplainable circumstances. My sister was infected with HIV by her husband and my nephews and nieces are devastated. I now carry a burden and passion in my heart for children affected by HIV/AIDS.
Early in my childhood I made a decision to make a differnce and impact my generation and future generations. I left for the United States for futher studies, not knowing that I would end up studying medicine.
I had my own personal challenges and I went through some personal life-altering crises that brought me closer to God. Through it all, it is the grace, mercy and transcending glory of God that brought me through and gave me a living hope.
HIV in Africa has a different twist; HIV-2 is mostly a heterosexual disease, resistant to most anti-retroviral agent and carries an enormous cultural stigma. Africa's population is less than 15% of the world population, yet 70% of those with HIV or dying of AIDS live in Africa. Nigeria has 3 million people between the the ages 15-49 infected with HIV. More 1.4 million children has been orphaned by AIDS. Are we going to let God’s children to carry these burdens alone?
This year our focus is two orphanages in Nigeria;
(1) The ABIYE ORPHANAGE HOME in OSHOGBO NIGERIA
All the children at Abiye orphanage in Oshogbo Nigeria were abandoned because they were infected with HIV from their mother
(2)The MOTHER THERESA ORPHANAGE HOME, BOROKIRI, PORT HARCOURT NIGERIA
On these short term mission, we would provide medical supplies, training for care givers, medical and dental care, medications, counseling discipleship training and pastoral care.
As a servant leader, president and medical director of Hope for Tomorrow Center, Inc. and in partnership with Other Global Health Initiatives, we are committed to responding to the need of these children. We want to bring hope and make a differnce in the lives of these children and give them a future
We realize we cannot do this alone and we need your prayers, support and financial contribution to help us bring hope, healing, education and a future to these children. Whatever you can do is greatly appreciated.
