Represented by the Director-General Orji Uzor Kalu movement Rev. Jemima Ola-Kalu, Sen. Kalu said the aim was to ensure that all terminal diseases affecting Nigerians would be treated and eradicated from the county by the year 2030, inline with the United Nations’ sustainable development agenda.

The lawmaker added that the exercise that started in Isuikwuato LGA would continue in Arochukwu Local Government.

He also revealed that his foundation would commence free medical treatment for cancer patients across all the political wards in the Abia North senatorial district.

He said, “We are aligning our thematic area with the United Nations sustainable development agenda 2030 which is to eradicate poverty and provide good health care for all.

“We are also providing a good education for our people at all levels. Recently we gave 50 students scholarships to study medicine and surgery in Venezuela and another 650 students to study medicine in selected 12 Nigerian Universities.

“We will ensure that by the year 2030 the patients/doctor ratio in Nigeria which is currently one doctor to 30 patients improves by training more medical doctors”.

The head of the medical team Dr Grace Onyebuchi Achilike explained that peptic ulcer disease can occur in the stomach and any other part of intestine.

She pointed out that the medical outreach was facilitated by Kalu because of his love for the people of Abia North senatorial district and Abia State in General to access quality health care attention.

She said; ‘I had organized a free medical outreach to give back to the society at Igbere last year because of the kind gesture of his Excellency to me when I was a student.

“But being a man that wants good health care delivery for his people our distinguished senator asked that we should extend the free treatment to other Local Governments in his senatorial district.

Some of the beneficiaries of the free test and treatment including Mr Godwin Onyekachi Orji, Roseline Eze, Chukwudi Augustine, and Iyke Okole commended the Senate Chief whip for the kind gesture, describing it as a privilege to members of the community.
