Sen Binos rounds up medical outreaches in 9 LGs, targets 78,000 patients

The senator representing Adamawa south senatorial zone, Binos Dauda Yaroe has on Monday flags off a three day free medical outreach in Lamurde local government which is the 9th and the last outreach he organized for the people of Adamawa south comprising of nine local governments.

The senator during a session with newsmen shortly after flagging off the medical outreach noted that the previous outreaches have tremendous impact on the lives of the common man.

The Senator has provided motorized boreholes, to all the nine local governments of the senatorial zone, farm implements, food relief to cushion the effect of COVID -19 pandemic, provided a mobile clinic and brought substantial empowerment packages since his inception into office, three years ago.

He noted that he started the free medical outreaches in Demsa in 2019 and flagged off the last one in Lamurde today in addition to commissioning of a mobile clinic yesterday.

“Yesterday we commissioned the mobile hospital which is here. It is intended to complement the free medical outreaches we have been carrying. We commissioned this facility in Borrong which is a hinterland location. Patients were treated there and one or two or three operations were conducted.

“Where we are not able to take our free medical outreach, the mobile clinic can reach,” he said.

Also commenting, the lead medical consultant, Dr. Talemoh Dah noted that in the last 8 medical outreaches, no fewer than 64,000 patients have been attended to adding that they are targeting 6,000 patients in the ongoing outreach which will last three days.

He noted that about 30% of all the cases are eye challenges noting that for that reason a grand finale for only people with eye challenges will be conducted by the senator in the nearest future.

He said no fewer than 8,000 patients will be attended to during the grand finale of the medical outreaches.

Also debunking rumours that the medical outreaches conducted by the senator are sponsored by NGOs and INGOs, Dr. Dah said all the medical outreaches were solely organized by the senator adding that his NGO Sorterie Afrique is only implementing the medical outreach.

“The senator is responsible for all the bills including cost of drugs, transportation, equipments, accomodation, feeding and the honorarium involved in the medical outreaches.

“As doctors and implementing partners, our job is to give medical services to the people,” he said.
