Each year a team of volunteer doctors, surgeons, nurses, volunteers, and pharmacists from the United States travels to Nigeria with LHCM on medical mission trips. The care they provide is a godsend to rural villagers who are at risk of death as a result preventable or treatable health problems, simply because medical services and supplies are unavailable to them.
Insect bites, injuries, and stomach flu shouldn’t result in death. Cataracts, hernias, and abscessed teeth should not incapacitate a life. But the sad reality is far too often they do. Furthermore, problems are often exacerbated in the remote villages where people have little access to paved roads or transportation. An ill person often turns to the only help available, even if it is a witch doctor.
Unfortunately, without proper care from professionals, health conditions often worsen and in some cases result in death. Knowing this, the long-term vision of LHCM is to build a hospital in order to provide ongoing medical care for those in need.
