Reconstructed & re-equipped Diocesan Specialist Hospital, Obohia Mbaise Nigeria
- Funded by Gift Health Plus Inc
The Diocesan Specialist hospital, Obohia Mbaise formerly known as Diocesan Cottage Hospital Obohia, Mbaise is owned by the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Mbaise Diocese. It was established in 1947 by christian missionaries in Mbaise upon the notion that it can serve as an instrument for spiritual, social and economic well-being while providing healthcare to its constituents. Over the years however, it fell into disrepair and became non-functional. The diocese under His Lordship, Rt Rev. Bishop Chamberlain Ogunedo requested our help in revamping the institution and Gift Health Plus obliged. On September 8th 2015, the new facility was dedicated and began attending to patients.
Gift Health Plus Inc is committed to helping ensure that basic healthcare provisioning is afforded to citizens of rural communities in Nigeria. We are developing an innovative patient-centered model for rural healthcare transformation in Nigeria which is tailored to the physiological, psychological and socioeconomic needs of the people. Our model is driven by evidence/data and adapts international medical best practices to meet the needs of the communities.
We are committed to building sustainable health facilities in rural Nigeria that are equipped to manage most disease endemic to these communities. We partner with local communities, churches and credible non-governmental organizations to refurbish and upgrade their existing health facilities or build new ones to meet their needs. Gift Health Plus embraces these communities in order to contribute to a more just and humane society.
We adopted the song “Do Something” by Matthew West as our anthem because it aptly captures a big part of the motivation for what we do. The scale of the need for basic healthcare knowledge and supplies in most parts of rural Africa is mind-boggling to say the least.
In partnership with some US based non-profit organizations and volunteers, Gift Health Plus Inc organizes free medical mission trips to rural Nigeria. The missions are typically 1 week long during which we provide free basic healthcare and medications to as many people as possible. Volunteers paid for their round trip fare to Nigeria while GH+ takes care of the other needs.
The services we provided included primary care, pediatrics, eye care, HIV/AIDS, reproductive health as well as health education. High quality medications are distributed to patients free of charge.
