ExquisiteWater has officially started their first pilot in Nigeria. Their director, Amanda Sunny left for Nigeria on July 5th until the 14th to attend the very successful annual Anambra State Association World Medical Mission and Health Summit 2015. While she was there, she presented their mission for the communities in Anambra State, Nigeria to the 250+ attendees and spoke to the state’s Commissioner of Health.

The medical mission consisted of a group of 50 volunteers (physicians, ophthalmologists, pharmacists, nurses, and general volunteers) who traveled to six rural villages in Anambra State, Nigeria (Agbaghana, Obosi, Ihembosi, Ozubelu, and Oba) with donated prescription eyeglasses and pharmaceutical care.

In each village, the team was able to serve at least 1,500 people with a six day total of at least 9,000 people seen; including some individuals whom have never seen a doctor before in their life.

In the midst of this preliminary trip with the medical mission and health summit presentation, they were able to learn how to manage the steps needed to secure operations within a village as well as the importance of good communication. Click article to read more.
