FOUNDATION BUILDS PHC FOR OKOKO ITEM..
In its bid to contribute to making life more meaningful for rural dwellers, Cosmos Ndukwe Foundation has built and donated a Primary Health Center(Modern Maternity Centre) to the women of Okoko Item in Bende Local Government Area of Abia State.
Handing over the PHC to the community, Founding President of the Foundation, Dr. Cosmos Ndukwe enjoined the community to accept the facility as a modest attempt by the Foundation to provide Primary Health Services and ameliorate the hardship created by non availability of similar centre for several years.
Dr. Ndukwe observed that the Foundation has idea of how to uplift the living standard of rural dwellers but only limited by financial resources. Dr. Ndukwe, who is also the major financier of the Foundation thanked Senator Mao Ohuabunwa for promising to oblige the Foundation equipments to be used in boosting services provided at the centre. Senator Mao, who is also the Chairman Senate Committee on Primary Health Care and Communicable Diseases lauded the Foundation for addressing critical areas of human development.
Few months ago, the Foundation had built, equipped and donated a PHC to Okagwe Item. The Centre has since been offering subsidized medical services to natives.
The Foundation invites good spirited persons to particularly assist in equipping this Centre so that the aim of building it is not defeated.
