Kool Smiles recently teamed up with Arms of Care International (ACI) to deliver medical supplies to children and families in Nigeria, where ACI just completed a successful medical trip to deliver care, supplies and health education to communities in need.
According to the World Health Organization, Nigerians face urgent and escalating health needs, including high rates of severe malnourishment and a lack of basic shelter, water, and latrines that can increase the risk of communicable disease.
“Women and children are the most affected,” said O. Michael Obiekwe, President of Arms of Care International.
During the two-week trip, volunteers provided free medical services, surgical operations, health education, and eye glasses to those in need.
Arms of Care International is a non-profit organization that provides medical care to the poor, homeless and disenfranchised. If you would like to assist AIC with a contribution to successfully carry out future mission trips, be sure to check out their website at www.armsofcare.com.
