Mr Mohammed Baba is a 74 year old resident at Okobaba Destitute Home in Lagos, Nigeria. During our interaction with him, at the Malaria Awareness Outreach, he said most of the members of the community do not have access to effective and quality healthcare because they were being discriminated against. Since the inception of this Home, no one had ever come to offer free healthcare services to them. He was very grateful to Divine Missions Health Center for the wonderful opportunity to positively affect their community. Furthermore, he said the free healthcare services would save them a lot of time and money spent on trying to get access to healthcare. "I want to thank Divine Missions Health Center and all the volunteers for reaching out to our community which is being neglected. I pray God will grant you all your heart desires."
