The basic medical needs attended were:
- Malaria testing and treatment
- Skin diseases and infections
- Blood Sugar Level testing for diabetes
- Provision of selected medication.
- Eye testing and treatment
In addition to providing medical care, donations of clothes, shoes, household wares and food items were delivered.
