“In addition to the Free Drugs distribution, the Founder of the Foundation, Engr. Enyinnaya Nwafor directed us to also access the facilities for other basic challenges and needs in the Health Centers begging for intervention. For instance structures requiring to be repainted, bedding or restructuring of some parts of the facilities etc. Based on this pilot phase assessments, so far the Foundation is planning to build new structures in some of the Health Centers where needed,” he said.
