NAFOWA offers medical services to host communities in Kaduna state

Outreach

Abuja, March 31,2019 The Nigerian Air Force Officers’ Wives Association (NAFOWA) Air Training Command (ATC) Chapter has conducted a three-day medical outreach for residents of Kauya community in Igabi Local Government Area (LGA) of Kaduna state.

The Association equally renovated, furnished a block of classrooms and constructed a borehole at Nomadic Primary School Kafin-Ganye Kirama also in Igabi LGA.

NAF’s Spokesman, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, made this known in a statement on Sunday in Abuja.

Speaking at the inauguration of the classroom block, Mrs Hadiza El-Rufai, wife of the Kaduna State Governor, said the occasion is a pointer to the long standing relationship between NAF and the good people of Kaduna.

The statement quoted her as saying “it does not come as a surprise, I have had cause, over time, to witness the care and concern exhibited by your noble organisation.”

She said such initiatives would enable bonding and regeneration of the spirit of oneness in the state.

NAFOWA National President, Hajiya Hafsat Sadique Abubakar, said the initiative is in fulfillment of the association’s corporate social responsibility to host communities.

“Our initiatives target activities that add value to human existence through humanitarian outreaches like this and capacity building like our NAFOWA Skills Acquisition and Vocational Training Programmes,” she said.

She was represented by the Vice President of the association, Mrs Maria Anebi.

Earlier, Dr Safiya Suleiman, the Chairperson NAFOWA ATC Chapter, revealed that the initiative is to provide a conducive learning environment as well as alleviate the health challenges in the two communities.

The statement revealed that text and exercise books were provided for the school while the 3-day medical outreach catered to clinical and surgical needs of about 4,000 beneficiaries with treated mosquito nets.

It said other consumables like clothing were distributed to members of the communities.
