Our medical intervention program seeks to reduce mortalities rising from the widespread poverty and destitution in Nigeria. Many segments of the population are under this menace resulting in avoidable deaths. 

MEET MRS. JULIUS

Her family had a fire accident that led to the loss of 3 children amidst 4 children.  The only surviving child is her 5 year old boy, Testimony Julius, who hid inside the fridge while the fire engulfed his younger siblings helplessly.

The parents were financially incapable to commence treatment for the children who were victims of fire accident so Health Emergency Initiative (HEI) stepped in to help fight for the children’s lives but it was only Testimony that managed to escape death as a result of the fire accident.

 

Meet Saviour’s Mother

Saviour’s mother would have lost her child, Saviour but for the intervention of Health Emergency Initiative(HEI).

HEI is unique because we provide immediate succor to the most vulnerable and the poorest segment of our society rather than focus on advocacy solely. At the moment, we are only able to provide support to individuals in Lagos; however, we are looking to expand to areas where we can provide this support.

MAKE A DONATION

Road traffic accident has been identified by WHO as the highest killer of young people and 65% of Nigeria’s population is made up of youths. In the quest of fulfilling the HEI Mission THAT NONE SHOULD DIE Health Emergency Initiative(HEI) provides post-crash care to road traffic emergency victims.

We collaborate with FRSC officials and other emergency agenciese to save more lives by swiftly providing financial assistance to road traffic accidents victims.

HEI FIRST RESPONDERS TRAINING

To address the public apathy in pre-hospital emergency care and stimulate public interest, Health Emergency Initiative proposes a First Responders (FRs) Scheme to create a community/network of volunteers trained to attend to certain kinds of emergencies and provide the right care at the right time with the right skills.

The first response is the immediate treatment or care given to someone suffering from an injury or illness until more advanced care is accessed or they recover. The provision of prompt and appropriate first aid or Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation can reduce the severity of an injury or illness; and in extreme cases, could mean the difference between life and death.
