Restoration of the Free Clinic for Children in the Makoko Slum Update

May 31, 2007

Dr. Deji Shedu

It's "Hurrah" for Team Nigeria in April, as the Federal Ministry of Health supported our application for the registration of Complete Health Support Services (CHSS) – the representative of RMF in Nigeria. The approval letter is below.

We are also fortunate to have secured the services of a Project Coordinator, who will organize our efforts on this project on site. The Project Coordinator understands the local language, she is familiar with the area our project is sited and is passionate about working with the community. She will be responsible for reaching out to the community through its leaders and to bridge the gap between the host community and RMF. Furthermore, she will be involved in day to day activities associated with setting up the clinic, including arranging for staffing, and account keeping, as well as other duties that may come up.
