Ndibe people don grab answer to dia prayers!


The talkhealth9ja and Make Our Hospital work team dey go round Ebonyi to make sure say people understand wetin dem suppose do to upgrade or build dia health centres.

Di Ndibe people collect dis advice come upgrade dia health centre and we get di complete success story from dem.

Ndibe village have suffered lack of proper medical care and access for a long time despite having a well built primary health care centre with residential space for doctors.

The health centre was entirely built by the community, furnished to the best of their capability with support from prominent people from the community under the aegis Ndibe development union, even though there is no light in the centre – not even a generator.

Unfortunately with their efforts, their people still end up going as far as Mater Misericordiae hospital and even AE-FUTHA in Abakaliki to access quality health especially when they’re in need of expert care.

Their health committee was however strengthened as a result of the consistent advocacy by the TalkHealth Real Media Ltd through their Open Society Initiative For West Africa (OSIWA) sponsored Radio show in Ebonyi tagged TalkHealth 9ja Radio Show where they campaigned fervently for the formation of Community/Village Health Committee and strengthening of existing ones as required by the National Health Act 2014 and referenced in the Ward Health System developed by the Government of Nigeria.

A sensitization program was then organized by the Make Our Hospital Work team in collaboration with talkhealth 9ja with support from OSIWA to properly educate and guide their activities in renovating and maintaining their primary healthcare centre. To this effect, a townhall meeting was organized.

The townhall meeting focused on sensitization of the attendees, the villagers, on the need for support from the villagers for the maintenance and renovation of their primary healthcare centre.The villagers pledged to take responsibility for some items after the need list was read out loud.

A gift of customized Make Our Hospital Work hand washing bucket with stand and examination couch was presented by the Afikpo Make Our Hospital Work Campaign lead, Mr Onyemuche Egwu to the village.

With the few items gifted by the Make Our Hospital Work team and the pledges made by the villagers, the health committee has been strengthened and promised to reach out to political aspirants from the communities for support in the health sector rather than collect foodstuffs like before.

They are still however soliciting for a professional doctor to offer standard healthcare to their people as they are yet to have the presence of a medical professional in their healthcentre.

The youths have actively started participating in all the activities needed to make their health centre.

The health committee also health educates Ndibe people and also enlightens them to promote healthy living by organizing seminars, teaching classes and sanitation exercises.

The sanitation is geared towards clean environment.

This was made possible by the Make Our Hospital Work campaign in partnership with OSIWA and presented by Talkhealth9ja Media vigorously carried out in the community.
