The OMIWA Foundation, has offered free medical treatment to over 400 vulnerable persons suffering from various ailments in Ndokwa East Local Government Area of Delta State.
This was after successfully completing a similar medical mission exercise carried out in Umunede Kingdom in Ika North East Local Government Area of Delta with a total number of 497 patients treated at zero cost.
The OMIWA Foundation, which literal and dialectical meaning  is ‘Our Waters’ of Okwu-Nzu Kingdom, in Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State, carried out the free medical mission on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th, June, 2024, at the Oluchi Market Square in Okpai, Ndokwa East.
As a mark of Honour, the program was officially flagged-off by the Member  representing Ndokwa/Ukwuani Federal constituency in the National Assembly,  Honourable Nnamdi Ezechi.
A member of the OMIWA Foundation, a renowned medical practitioner in Delta State, Dr Steve Ugbome led 19 medical personnel of the Foundation to Okpai, Oluchi communities to assist the people in the rural areas.
Responding to questions from pressmen, one of the coordinators of OMIWA Foundation, Mr. Tohan Okenyi said the exercise was part of activities to support Government since Government alone cannot do everything.
Mr. Okenyi said the event was also to demonstrate the humanitarian nature of the Okwu-Nzu people, and the kingdom’s commitment to improved quality healthcare service delivery.
According to him “Today’s event signifies our commitment towards improving our relationship with other communities in Delta State. And also have the privilege of free consultations with OMIWA Foundation team of medical experts. In addition to some screening exercises like hepatitis, malaria and sugar test that were carried out.”
While thanking the community leaders and Hon Nnamdi Ezechi for coming to see what OMIWA Foundation is doing to assist the less privileged, Okenyi said the Foundation would continue to provide viable programmes to support communities in Delta North Senatorial District.
The monarch of Okpai, His Royal Majesty, Obi Gold-Ring Enebeli Ugbome 11 JP, lauded the gesture and offered his blessings to OMIWA Foundation.
One of the beneficiaries, Mrs Nkech Osuya, commended OMIWA Foundation for the opportunity given to them to access free medical care.
She urged other organisations and individuals to emulate the gesture to enhance access to quality healthcare services at the grassroots
