Starting from today January 31st, 2024, Leadway Health, a leading Health Maintenance Organisation (HMO), and Dominion Healing Wings a not-for-profit organisation, hit the road with a transformative two-week free surgical outreach that will be concluded on February 10th, 2024.
This remarkable initiative aims to bring hope and healing to 200 individuals facing kidney conditions by offering specialised vascular surgical procedures at no cost to the individuals. The 2-week-long outreach will include tunnelled dialysis catheter placement, arteriovenous fistula creation, and arteriovenous graft placement.
Speaking on the groundbreaking intervention, Chief Executive Officer of Leadway Health, Dr Tokunbo Alli, stated, “At Leadway Health, we believe in the transformative power of compassion and collaboration. Hence, the birth of this strategic partnership to provide superior vascular procedures for about 200 individuals faced with kidney disease. This two-week-long free surgical outreach underscores our unwavering commitment to addressing the critical healthcare needs of our community and ensuring that healthcare benefits are not financially burdensome.”
“By providing specialized procedures for individuals with kidney conditions, we aspire to not only alleviate the burden of healthcare costs but also to impart a renewed sense of hope and well-being. This initiative is a testament to the impact we can achieve when organisations unite for a shared purpose – the betterment of lives. We invite the community, businesses, and healthcare professionals to join hands with us in making a meaningful difference, and we also encourage individuals to spread this news to their loved ones”, he concluded.
Also commenting on the medical outreach, Founder and Chairman of Dominion Health Wings (DHW), Dr. Olubunmi Esan, said, “We envision a world where every individual enjoys optimal healthcare delivery, free from critical illnesses, such as the burdens of kidney disease. Our vision is a future where innovative research, compassionate support, and widespread awareness come together to prevent, treat, and ultimately cure kidney conditions. This is no small feat, however, with the partnership of leading organisations like Leadway Health, with a shared value of empathy and superior healthcare benefits, the fulfilment of our vision remains an inspiring cause.”
Patients are expected to visit the outreach clinic in Lagos from 9:00 am daily for the duration of the surgical outreach.
