Mothers & Community Health Care Awareness Program (MCHAP)

Project M-CHAP as designed, currently provides expert health information, support and intervention to impoverished people in the Niger-Delta Region of Nigeria. We have scheduled Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, as our next Port of call. We have scheduled our 2016 outreach activities for Bayelsa State. The plan is to commence the outreach earnestly during the month of June.

We started operational work in Port Harcourt, Rivers State last year and during our 3 weeks of operation; not withstanding our limited human and other resources, we performed 30 surgeries ranging from:

a) Excision Biopsy,
b) Hydrocele,
c) Inguinal Herniorrhea repair,
d) Fibroid,
e) Keliod Excision and
f) Cesarean-Sections for women with high risk pregnancies.

The first Surgery took place on the 12th of October 2015 at Danferd Specialist Clinics Port Harcourt. All surgeries were successful, Patients were admitted for a few days after the procedure before they were discharged.

We plan on carrying out similar medical procedures in Yenagoa. We are confident that with the help and expertise of the wished-for Caucasian Volunteer Surgeons, we can surpass the successes recorded in Rivers State last year.

Our hope is for 2 or 3 Caucasian surgeons/ Specialist Doctors including general surgery,neurologist , cardiology urology, trauma and orthopaedics, emergency medicine, gastroenterology, respiratory [medicine], rheumatology, haematology/oncology, and radiology to join our existing team; the objective is for them to lead and train a team of local physicians currently on ground in Nigeria to carry out some more complex and high risk procedures.

What we offer to our Volunteers:

Our organization may now have a sprawling pool of financial resources to draw from but we are able to pay for international travel tickets, lodging, nourishment, security and other logistical support. We would also secure their travels visa expeditiously.

Bayelsa state and the State Government has undertaken to provide us with the necessary logistical support and enabling environment to carry out our duties professionally and effectively.

Our hope is for 2 or 3 Caucasian surgeons/ Specialist Doctors to join our existing team; the objective is for them to lead and train a team of local physicians currently on ground in Nigeria to carry out some more complex and high risk procedures.

The Volunteers will be required for a maximum 10 days during the outreach.

Proposed Start Date of Medical Outreach 15/06/16
Proposed End Date of Medical Outreach 25/06/16
