Charity information

New Foundations

Christian Medical Charity working in the politically volatile oil producing region of the Niger Delta, southern Nigeria.
We run a rural Clinic and boat clinics to 10 communities of subsistence fishermen and farmers. Our services are free.
We train local health care workers who are in turn supported by local government to undertake further training to return as community workers for our primary care programs. We run acute medical services, immunisation, malaria and HIV programs, plus rain harvesting schemes. Twice a year we hold heria and general surgical camps at the clinic plus cataract surgery. New Foundations supports a fulltime Doctor who is responsible for the programs and we encourage community, local government and other NGO partnership to avoid dependency and embed long term sustainability for the programs.
