Medical Outreaches/ Open Day


Life builders Initiative NGO had carried out several intervention programs in IDP camps/communities in the area of Medical support. This effort towards assisting the vulnerable has been on since the emergence of this organization and has since been living to its mandate in reducing poverty and impacting lives of the poor in camps/communities in and around the FCT. Some of the areas where our organizations have carried out medical outreaches in partnership with volunteer doctors and other NGOs includes Wassa, Kuje, Orozo, Kabusa, Area 1, New KuchingoroKutara/Tataradna etc.


The Wassa community has the challenge of accessing medical services as it is a distance from the nearest town. Life Builders Initiative NGO successfully mobilized a team of medical personnel, volunteers, non-governmental organizations and health institutions, to attend medically to no fewer than 500 residents of Wassa IDP camp. Over 100 children between 0-5 years, 382 women, and 99 men were reached out to. Aside this, Life Builders have also provided 400 IDP ID card to enable them go about their legitimate Life as citizens without harassment and intimidation in the hands of security operatives giving to their vulnerability as an IDP in Abuja. In 2018, LBI revisited with the team of Medics for another medical outreach.
