Update from the Field

October 4, 2006

The project Restoration of the Free Clinic for Children in the Makoko Slum, Lagos, Nigeria is starting to gain momentum. We have attracted the interest of Dr. Nkem Ndionuka of Nigeria, Ms. Pei-hsuan Tsai, a nurse in Cambridge, MA, and Mrs. Bukky Balogun, a lawyer working with the Lagos State Ministry of Justice, who are also enthusiastic to see the project come alive. Dr. Nkem and Mrs. Bukky will be visiting the Makoko slum's elders, to introduce the plan and hope to receive their whole-hearted welcome to bring such a life saving service to the community's children. Dr. Nkem is gathering accurate estimates of material costs for the proposal's budget, as a final critical step before the proposal is submitted for funding to various sources.
