Project Description

Region: Africa

Country: Nigeria

Location: Takuchara Abuja

Total Budget: $124,300

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

Takuchara village has no medical facility. The only service available there is an private medical store that is neither supervised nor controlled. Also, the village has no good roads hence the quickest means of accessing facilities available are either on foot or by motorcycles. This has made people in this remote village victims of ailments some of which are preventable. The saying goes that prevention is better than cure. This project is intended to vaccinate 500 people against Hepatitis B, Meningitis, Yellow Fever, Tetanus, Polio and Typhoid (there is vaccination for Typhoid that lasts for 3 years Vi-polysaccharide typhoid vaccine, but we are opting the latest vaccine that protects for life Vi-Conjugate typhoid vaccine). Also, 400 females will receive Human Papiloma Virus (HPV) Vaccine that protects women against Cervical Cancer. This project will be accomplished within three weeks of starting. Club members will be involved in mobilisation and control of the people. Those with medical related classifications (we have 2 medical doctors, a nurse and few other health workers) will be part of the medical team as volunteers. We will make every day of the exercise to be like a picnic thus members will volunteer refreshments and the Club will augment when there is inadequacy.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
