US-based audiologist provides free medicare to over 500 in Bayelsa

WARRI—A non-governmental organisation, Niger Delta Care Incorporated, Hearing and Vision Charity, facilitated by Delta-born United States- based audiologist, Dr. John Oyiborhoro, has offered free medicare to over 500 patients in Bayelsa State.

The free medicare, which held at Covenant Faith Proof Ministries, City of Truth, Yenagoa,  witnessed a huge turnout of people from Bayelsa, Delta, Edo, Imo, Abia, Rivers, Akwa Ibom and other neighbouring states.

Leader of Niger Delta Care Incorporated and organizer of the programme, Dr. Oyiborhoro, noted that the programme turned out to be the best since it began many years ago.

Oyiborhoro stated that he was delighted that the programme reached out to the needy in the society, disclosing that in 2016 his organisation will bring more medical experts from the United States with a view to reaching out to more underprivileged persons with health challenges.

He commended Starkey Foundation based in the United States of America and owned by Bill Austin, for always donating the hearing aids used for the programme, just as he acknowledged the challenges encountered in transportation and personnel in the bid to ensure that the 2015 programme met the target audience.
