Benue Governor’s Wife Offers Free Medical Outreach To 20,000 People

The wife of Benue State governor, Eunice Ortom, says Eunice Spring of Life Foundation (ESLF) has treated over 20,000 people under its phase two of free medical outreach in the state.

Mrs. Ortom disclosed this on Thursday in Utonkon, Ado Local Government Area of the state, during the flag off of the third phase of the programme organised by ESLF, her pet project.

She said that the people were treated of various ailments such as malaria, diarrhoea and typhoid fever.

Mrs. Ortom emphasised that at the third phase of the free medical outreach, more people would be treated because the outreach was taking place in all the council wards in the state.

“To strengthen the primary healthcare system for better service delivery, ESLF will donate autoclaves, blood pressure apparatus, needle holders, artery forceps, a complete kit for a surgeon to work successfully in a theatre.

“These items will be donated to the most needy health centre at Ikpomolokpo.

“Let me thank Echo Scan Services Limited, Abuja, for donating 10 modern hospital beds to us and we will distribute the beds to the needy primary health centres soon,” she said.

The Programme Officer, ESLF, Tine Agernor, said that it was the utmost desire of the founder that all and sundry should have easy access to healthcare delivery.
