Our Work

2024 Medical Outreach

raised funds 70%

In January 2024, the ARK Outreach team embarked on a mission to visit eight hospitals across six states in Nigeria. We aimed to alleviate the financial burden faced by individuals who had to spend Christmas and New Year in the hospital due to their inability to afford medical bills. This act of compassion was warmly received at each hospital we visited, where we encountered both adults and children grappling with various illnesses. Among them were patients who, despite being discharged, remained unable to leave the hospital premises due to financial constraints. In some heartbreaking cases, newborns were left under hospital care while their mothers sought means to gather the necessary funds. Additionally, we encountered patients whose medical treatments had been halted due to insufficient finances.

The recipients of this profound kindness offered prayers for our donors and the entire ARK Outreach team.


General Clinic

The clinic focuses on providing non-emergency outpatient care that's routine or preventive. Before each patient sees the G.P, they meet with nurses for some pre-screening checks, for example, blood pressure etc. Some other severe cases were sent to the laboratory clinic for the relevant test to be performed to enable the GPs to make proper diagnosis depending on individual cases. Our general clinic also signposts patients to appropriate services and treat all common medical conditions and refer patients to hospitals and other medical services for urgent and specialist treatment.

Eye Clinic

Our Ophthalmologists are doctors who care for patients with eye conditions. They diagnose, treat and prevent disorders of the eyes and visual system. Over the years, this clinic has observed a high number of cataract cases requiring immediate attention. Surgical cases and chronic illness were referred to tertiary center to access free surgery.

Pediatric Clinic

Our pediatricians have supported children as young as 8 months old of age. Most children presented as vitamin deficient and each received vitamin C and B complex and parents were advised to monitor their vitamin levels and educated on the consequences of vitamin deficiencies. Other services provided within this clinic include:
- surveillance of kidney disease in children, using urine dipstick testing kit.
- Nutritional assessment of children using auxology.

Health Education

We have partnered with SAFEMED Ireland to deliver a stress management program to staff, volunteers and also members of the public on the importance of mental wellbeing. Participants are provided with resources to manage their mental health . The health promotion unit also organises training sessions, to empower our audience to care for themselves (their children or neighbours) by increasing their knowledge and skills. They enlighten people on the danger of common illnesses like Diabetes and High blood pressure. They also counsel individuals that test HIV positive after a retrovirus test is given and refer them to the hospital where they would receive free HIV treatment.

Help us achieve this goal

We hope to be able to reach more communities around the world and continue to provide free healthcare, surgery and after care to all urgent medical cases. Our aim is to save lives, starting from the ground up and through meeting basic needs.
