According to him: “by partnering with Agbor-USA, we have been able to go beyond just Ika South and to some extent, Ika North East by virtue of carrying it out at the State School of Nursing : our basic aim is to help the community, to do whatever we can to alleviate their health challenges”. He said that the people have always turned up enmasse in previous missions. He said that the people are very receptive to the medical missions, while saying that they hope to continue carrying out such projects in the future.
