A rural healthcare outreach project funded by the Nigeria Muslim Forum UK (NMFUK) will kick off at the Anka Hospital in Zamfara State. The Zamfara State Government and Anka Local Government are providing logistical support,a statement by  the Forum’s  Publicity Secretary,  Dr Aliyu Musa said

The three-day project, which starts Saturday, January 5, 2012, will involve free consultation, free of prescription drugs and minor surgical operations.  Drugs worth £3,000 will be distributed to patients who desperately need but afford them. The project will also include skill transfer and training of local nurses and health extension workers.

Dr Inua Anka, a UK-based surgeon and member of the NMFUK will lead the project in with volunteer medical specialists from several teaching hospitals .

This project will build on the success of our pilot health outreach project at Kibiya, Kano State in August 2012, says NMFUK Ameer Mallam Sani Mu’azu Makarfi.

Mallam Makarfi also thanked members and everyone whose generosity has made the project possible, as well all the participating experts and volunteers for sparing their time, skills and energy to make it a success. It is particularly remarkable that some volunteers from Kibiya are traveling all the way to Anka to lend a helping hand.
