It was a moment of joy and great anticipation for the indigenes of Amangwu in Ohafia community,Abia State as CHAMA medical team visited them From January 21st to 25th . It was free galore of surgeries, eye treatments and general health care.
CHAMA is a local and international registered non-for- profit
charitable organization based out of Halifax, NS, Canada that
aspires to be a vibrant community organization for health and
well-being by treating malaria and reducing poverty and the
incident of HIV-AIDS among youths in Canada and abroad.
Despite the increase in development assistance, the development
process and its benefits largely continue to bypass Indigenous
people. Although there are larger valuable charities in the
development sector, rendering great services to the world,
unfortunately, they tend to focus on city-centers and easily
accessed locations. Unfortunately, many of the world’s most dire
situations exist in the more remote and isolated areas that are
seldom heard of.
CHAMA has come on board to bridge this gap, taking development
directly to rural Africa communities in order to reduce these
needless deaths in the needy African and third world’s remote
rural villages that often elude development officers. Our top
priority is service to humanity.
WHAT WE DO In partnership with local organizations, CHAMA makes a biannual mission trip to targeted communities in Africa. During our mission trips our volunteers work with orphaned and vulnerable children who have malaria, HIV and AIDS and provide them with health care, clothing and food. In the local community, (Halifax Regional Municipality) needy immigrants new to the area are given the resources they need to get settled.
