  1. We invite volunteers skilled in pediatric cardiac surgical procedure and pediatric intensive care to take part on this necessary
    and thrilling program constructing effort on the College of Nigeria Instructing Hospital
    in Enugu, Nigeria.

    The Federal Republic of Nigeria, is a federal constitutional
    republic comprising 36 states. Its capital is Abuja. The nation is positioned in West
    Africa and shares land borders with the Republic of Benin within the
    west, Chad and Cameroon within the east, and Niger within the north.

    It’s probably the most populous nation in Africa, and with
    174 million residents, the seventh most populous nation on the earth.
    British colonialism introduced good and dangerous, and plenty of suffered beneath British rule.
    Independence was achieved in 1960, however later civil struggle
    did nice harm to the creating societal construction. The nation is divided between 500 ethnic teams, through which Christianity and Muslim are the most well-liked religions.
    Regardless of being an vital financial system, healthcare improvement has been severely restricted.

    Enugu State, within the southeastern a part of Nigeria, is
    without doubt one of the 36 states constituting the Nigerian Federation and is removed from the occasional media consideration directed on the northern a part of the nation.
    The phrase “Enugu” (from Enu Ugwa) means “the prime of the hill” and designates the oldest city
    space within the area.

    Town owes its geopolitical significance to the invention of coal in 1909 by British geologists.
    The emergence of a everlasting cosmopolitan settlement influenced the development of a railway line to hyperlink the Enugu coal area with the sea port in Port Harcourt for export of
    the mineral.

    English is extensively spoken in Enugu, and the local weather
    is temperate with a imply temperature in April of eighty levels Fahrenheit.

    The Nigerian Heart for Illness Management
    says poverty and pollution have diminished the nationwide life
    expectancy to forty seven years previous, one in all the bottom in West
    Africa. Whereas well being officials dispute the
    quantity, none dispute the urgency of enhancing well being care within the area.

    One downside exists in Nigeria that nobody disagrees with:
    When individuals right here die younger, they normally die from diseases that
    would have been prevented or handled. Westernization of cities like Enugu has led to rising
    issues with hypertension, smoking, obesity & diabetes with no correspondent schooling
    in preventive cardiovascular or prenatal care.
    Moreover, whereas the preponderance ofcongenital coronary heart defects mirrors different components of the world, entry to
    definitive surgical therapy is severely missing.

    The College of Nigeria Instructing Hospital (UNTH) in Enugu is amongst the highest 5 educating hospitals in Nigeria, with
    the statutory mandate of analysis, educating, and
    specialist healthcare supply. Though the Minister of Well being has designated UNTH
    as a Nationwide Cardiothoracic Centre of Excellence, till just lately no cardiac surgical procedure had been carried out there

    who carried out the primary coronary heart surgical procedure at UNTH in March 2013 and have nice familiarity with the world and program.

    We are going to even be joined by Dr. Vincent Ohaju, the founding
    father of the VOOM Basis, a trauma surgeon at present working in Duluth, Minnesota.

    Dr. Ohaju has private ties to Nigeria and has personally witnessed the consequences from
    lack of accessible medical care on buddies and household, together with the lack of his father who handed away
    in 1983 on the age of fifty six as a result of complications from aspiration of a chunk of meat, which is
    one thing that could possibly be corrected with a easy
    process, in even the smallest hospital within the United States.
    Actually, over ninety five% of the individuals in Nigeria dwell with out important
    medical providers. This is a chance for these of
    us ready to impact change to vastly assist these much less

    single security challenge, a devoted staff of Nigerian safety employees
    shall be assigned to the mission and accompany our staff members every
    day and night to eradicate any considerations volunteers could have.
