Our Vision and Mission

We are a community of passionate, empathetic individuals dedicated to providing basic healthcare to the poorest segments of society through grassroots initiatives. We believe that every life is precious and should be protected at all costs, which is why our mantra is: ” that None should die.” This reflects our dissatisfaction with the status quo in Nigeria, where people die from medical conditions that require less than N20,000 ($30) to treat.

Our Initiatives

Since our founding in 2015, we have actively saved thousands of lives through our grassroots initiatives, addressing the pain points of indigent and vulnerable Nigerians.

Covering Emergency Medical Bills of Indigent Patients

Everyday across Nigerian hospitals, countless of men, women, children and babies die due to an inability to pay bills under N20,000 ($30). Recently, these death rates have become alarming. On the average 1.35 million people are either killed or maimed due to road crashes globally.

To ensure that ” that none should die,” from these acute/non-chronic diseases and crashes, we commit financially to covering the emergency medical bills of qualified indigent patients. To date, we have partnered with 78 hospitals nationwide to ensure these emergency cases are not delayed, once verified. With your continued support, we aim to partner with 144 hospitals by 2024, enabling us to save thousands of more lives.

Among these emergency cases are the victims of road traffic accidents, a common cause of preventable deaths in Nigeria. Better roads, an efficient emergency response system and trained individuals can significantly reduce these deaths. To bridge this gap, we have signed MOUs with key emergency institutions and government agencies, such as the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and the Lagos State Ambulance Service (LASAMBUS), to ensure road traffic accident victims receive prompt care at partner hospitals. We cover the initial 24-hour cost of resuscitation and stabilization, and over 85% of victims assisted under this scheme have survived.

Our dedicated team continually seeks new ways to tackle these challenges, restore hope and bring smiles to families. Our efforts are in line with our mission that “that none should die” due to inability to settle small medical bills or access lifesaving support in road traffic accidents.

Training First Responders

Besides responding directly to emergencies, we work to improve the speed and performance of First Responders during the critical first hours (golden hour). We do so by investing in and strengthening communities’ ability to prepare for and cope with emergencies.

To this end, we have trained government officials, institutions and corporate organizations in CPR, First Aid and other critical emergency response skills. This training has been extended to artisans (vulcanizers, towing van operators, commercial transporters, filling station attendants, dispatch riders, etc), Youth Corpers and secondary/tertiary school students. The Lagos State Commissioner of Education’s recent approval to train all secondary school students in the state boosts this initiative. Total numbers of first responders trained to date are well over 46,000 persons. Ongoing deployment of the iResponder mobile application will give impetus to train more 500,000 Lay First Responders across Nigeria in the next 3 years.

Ultimately, we hope this will help community members feel empowered and equipped to offer assistance during emergencies, instead of simply taking pictures and videos as bystanders, the common practice today.

Our Impact

After eight years, we have successfully:
Provided emergency medical financial assistance to over 7,290 indigent patients, including more than 3,800 children;

Provided post-crash care for over 805 road traffic crash victims;
Trained over 46,000 First Aid/Emergency Responders

Our Goals – Help Us By Contributing Today!


By 2024, we hope to reach our goal of partnering with at least 144 hospitals, providing lifesaving medical care to 16,500 indigent patients and training over 75,000 First Aid Responders.

With your help and contributions, we believe this is possible.

Donate today and be a part of our mission to ensure that ” that none should die” needlessly due to an inability to access basic emergency medical care.
