Medical Mission Caters to 800 Internally Displaced Individuals in Maiduguri

Victims of insurgency in northeastern Nigeria receive relief from Volunteer Medical Corps.

The conflict in Nigeria's northeastern region due to insurgent groups has caused widespread displacement and suffering on a massive scale. There are many vulnerable host communities in critical need of humanitarian interventions. In response to the dire need for water, sanitation, hygiene relief and health care assistance, the Volunteer Medical Corps deployed a team to the camps in Maiduguri on Friday, October 13.

This medical response and relief mission provided an avenue for free blood sugar and malaria screening, blood pressure screening and deworming of children. Drugs were also administered to those who required medication for various ailments diagnosed. The team attended to over 200 children and 600 men and women, including pregnant women and nursing mothers.

Medical missions representatives provide testing, diagnoses and medication.

Personal care items such as soaps, toilet paper, toothbrushes and toothpaste were made available to both adults and children. Bottled water was distributed to over 200 families to prevent the spread of cholera and other water-borne diseases. The Word of God was also ministered to them, and all residents received free copies of the Rhapsody of Realities daily devotional.

Relief items distributed to families along with the Rhapsody of Realities.
