Moved by the plights of less-privileged patients in some selected hospitals, the Founder of Sky Healthcare and Empowerment Initiative, SHE-I, Dr. Edidiong Etete, said plans are underway to grant financial assistance to patients at the general hospitals at Kubwa, Maitaima and Kuje among others.

Tagged ‘Grant A Wish’ medical outreach programme, the non-profit organisation, would be focusing on sickle cell anaemia cases, maternal and child healthcare.

In a statement, Dr. Etete stated that SHE-I’s objective is to provide healthcare support and empowerment opportunities in mostly rural communities.

She said: “Working with our Sky Ambassadors and partners from all over the world, we aim to provide awareness and medical support in sickle cell anemia cases, free medical services and medication, especially as it relates to maternal and child healthcare.

“As regards our empowerment programmes, we would be providing resources and skill acquisition to aid low income communities with special focus on the agriculture.”

She also stated that in line with the Foundation’s mission, it is determined to improve health outcomes, save lives, empower people with skills and equipment to eliminate poverty and promote the welfare of the less-privileged.
