Future medical missions are planned every 6 months to different States in Africa extending us invitation.

  • During the first mission in November 2004, GEF in collaboration with the Government of Lagos State established a new open heart surgery program and critical care unit. Both the operating room and CCU were equipped with state of the art equipments.
  • During the first and then subsequent missions, open heart sugery was performed free of charge to indigent patients (children and adults) afflicted with both congenital and accuired heart diseases. All the patients were doomed to early premature deaths without these life saving surgeries.
  • During each medical mission the medical, nursing and paramedical staff were trained in various techniques to empower them
