2016 AKISAN USA Medical Mission Report
The AKISAN sponsored medical mission to Akwa Ibom State initiative was conceived after the AKISAN headquarters was moved to the Philadelphia chapter in 2014 with the election of Mr. John Etim as the president of the association and my appointment as the co-chair of the health care committee. The plan called for AKISAN members to volunteer for a medical mission to be sited in the 3 senatorial districts of the state. Members were free to volunteer at any site of their choice. This was the association's way to give back to our communities at home by utilizing the skills and compassion of our members to offer desperately needed free medical and surgical life changing care for free to the indigent people of our state. Medical professionals were needed, but non-medical volunteers were also welcome. Starting in August 2015, we held teleconferences to plan for the mission that took place from Monday March 14th to Friday March 18th, 2016 and the medical mission was a spectacular success.
