We are a passionate community of compassionate people driven by a genuine and sincere mission to make a difference with the goal of providing access to basic healthcare to the poorest segment of the society by deploying homegrown solutions
We believe that every life is precious and should be protected at all costs, hence our mantra : ‘that none should die’ an expression of dissatisfaction with status quo in the health sector where people die on account of medical conditions requiring less than N20,000 ($30) In the past 7 years, we have actively saved the lives of Nigerians through our different initiatives that connects with the pain points of Nigerians especially indigent and vulnerable Nigerians.
Everyday across Nigerian hospitals; babies, children, men and women die due to lack of funds to settle bills that are under $30, and in very recent times the rates of deaths have been alarming. What we have done as an organization is to partner with hospitals not to hold back on emergency “cases” like this once verified, hence our financial commitments to continue to foot the emergency medical bills of indigent patients.
So far, we have partnered with 39 hospitals across Nigeria with the help of our partners and looking to have partnered with 100 no of hospitals by the year 2023 with your consistent support and partnership. In addition to our primary work with indigent patients, one of the common ways in which lives are lost globally is through road traffic accidents and in Nigeria alone, most of these deaths could be avoided with better roads, an efficient emergency response system and individuals who are skilled on how to respond to emergencies.
To bridge the gap, we signed MOU with key emergency institutions/government agencies (FRSC, LASAMBUS, etc) to ensure road traffic accident victims are promptly attended to by partner hospitals without hesitation or delay. This predicated on the grounds that our organization shall settle the initial 24hours cost of resuscitation and stabilization. Over 85% of victims assisted under this scheme survived.
Emergencies occur nearly every day, leaving people in urgent need of help to survive and recover. In addition to responding directly to emergencies, we work to help improve the speed and performance of first responders in the first critical hours of an emergency. We also invest in strengthening the ability of first responders, their organizations, and local institutions to help communities prepare for and cope with future shocks.
To this end, we have trained government officials/institutions, and corporate organizations on CPR/First Aid training, and are looking to train more individuals who know what to do when there’s an emergency. The training has been expand to artisans (vulcanizers, toying van operators, filling station attendants), Youth Corpers and Secondary School Students. The recent approval by Lagos State Commissioner of Education to train all secondary school students in the State is a boost to this imitative. Ultimately, the current practice of taking pictures and videos during prehospital emergencies instead of offering assistance would discontinue.
Whilst this highlights our focus as an organization, the work we do daily poses new challenges, and our dedicated and passionate team also work towards new ways of tackling these challenges, as well as restoring hope, putting smiles of the faces of families, all in line with our mission that “none should die.”…., on account of inability to settle little medical mills or access lifesaving support occasioned by road traffic accidents.
We’re here now, and after 7 years we have been able to provide medical intervention for over 700 cases with more than 400 being children. We have also been able to provide over 150 post crash care and over 400 first aid responders, we’ve only just begun!
