Our Mission is to Help. We are working to create a community where the poor people who make up 95% of the Nations population, will no more see the need to patronise quacks in a bid to escape huge medical bills. Because in the process, they expose themselves to a lot of health complications and maladies and even death from drug overdose and heinous therapy sessions.
Our basic tool is education. We work to systematically, innovatively and magically infiltrate and transform every mind be they learned, partially literate or outrightly dumb healthwise into citadels of sound medical and health knowledge. Thereby, coercing them into making the best health choices.
The norm now is quack “nurses”, “doctors” and trado-medical practitioners highjacking center stage in the Nigerian health sector while bludgeoning into the ground the lives of poor and vulnerable persons. The resultant dire effect of this profound quackery patronage, is widespread and under reported premature death of the young and old…
… a huge increase in the morbidity and mortality rate of the viable population leading to costly losses of human and financial resources. Case in point : an illicit over the counter drug prescription costing just 200 naira can lead to a complication requiring over 150,000 naira to remedy. That’s how cash resources get depleted. Many times that sum is borrowed from loan sharks just to keep the family member alive. But what if the family member ends up dead after all. Again financial resources lost.
For the above, among other numerous reasons, we the nurses at nursinghands.org have volunteered our skills and time and have come up with stellar strategies to turn the tide around in favour of the ignorant and poor people improving greatly their health in the process. We plan to shoot the problem in the foot big time. But we have challenges.
The scenario in Nigeria is such that patent medicine stores spearheaded by quacks and herbalists dot the landscape. They are so super abundant they’re just stone throws apart all over the country and countryside.
One has barely exited the premises of a quack “health” vendor before he/she finds themselves at the doormat of the next. Erroneously enough, the poor ignorant man thinks these quacks are his saviour. Saving him from the outrageous medical bills and expert/professional waiting to chew off his arm from the shoulder down should he make the “mistake” of seeking medical attention in an accredited orthodox health facility.
We are giving our time and expertise to the public as professional nurses for free because we are on a hellbent mission to shoot quackery in the abdomen , bury it deep and emancipate the ailing poor from the jaws of health ignorance and quack invasion. All we need is support.
Currently we are rolling out a cutting edge solution. It will enable absolutely free and seamless communication between every poor Nigerian with hand vetted health professionals. Users will have the privilege of making enquiries and getting directions on actions to take during domestic accidents and emergencies via multiple channels in real time.
To attain phenomenal success of these objectives. We are pairing innovative knowledge sharing with free investigations and treatments of varying costs. Building an ever growing network of cottage health centres where people around can easily get professional care.
Just walk in the way they’ll naturally walk to their refrigerator.
Have their complicated wound dressings done for them. Diabetics will be taught nutritional control of the disease. There will be family planning and counselling classes. Amongst other services.
