About 1,000 indigent patients in three states are set to benefit from the free medical programme by the Global Initiative for Peace, Love and Care.
The non-governmental organisation, in a statement on Wednesday, noted that the project ‘Touch a Life’ was inaugurated as part of Igho Charles Sanomi II’s birthday celebrations to commemorate the GIPLC’s 11th anniversary.
The Founder and Chairman of Taleveras, Igho Sanomi, said the objective of the exercise was to help vulnerable patients who could not afford to pay their medical bills.
He said, “This initiative seeks to touch the lives of the neediest members of our communities at a time when they need it the most. This is something I believe in wholeheartedly.”
The GIPLC Co-ordinator, Nuhu Kwajafa, said 1, 000 vulnerable Nigerians in Abuja, Delta and Benue States would receive financial support to offset their medical bills.
Kwaja said a team of doctors and other health professional team would be deployed to ensure that lives are saved.
He stated, “We give God all the glory for the will for people like Igho Sanomi to give back to those in need. We pray that this gesture will endear others to do same, so we may sustain this practice on a yearly basis.
“Ultimately, the goal is to stimulate the mobilisation of resources and raise awareness on the plight of those living in especially difficult circumstances.”
