Medical Outreach

Prior to 2008, Vision Africa conducted 3-4 or more medical missions each year. From 2009-2011, the development of Vision Africa Radio took the lion’s share of our resources and no medical missions were undertaken. In 2012, Vision Africa returned to its roots and began conducting medical missions again. Three medical missions were conducted in 2012 and three again in 2013 (one of which was in partnership with Shell Oil Company) and three again in 2014. Christian Outreach, Revivals and Crusades are usually conducted in conjunction with each Medical Mission (although free medical care is for all). The needs in this area are so great.   At the start of 2015, we purchased and put into service our first mobile medical vehicle which will enable us to conduct mobile medical clinics this year in more rural areas. Your contributions are needed to make this a reality.   Efforts continue to combat malaria, AIDs/HIV and polio through partnerships with organizations such as Shell Oil Company and our sister organization, the Nigerian Inter-Faith Action Association (NIFAA) of which Bishop Sunday is the Executive Director. Vision Africa Radio, Love 104.1 FM, often serves as the launching pad for medical outreach initiatives, through health education programing on the radio and promotion and announcements of specific medical missions, NIFAA activities and other similar activities.
