Caritas Nigeria in partnership with Enugu State Ministry of Health, assisted by local government TB Supervisors on Saturday, 2nd April 2022 carried our free medical checkups in Aguibeje Community, Enugu Ezike in Igbo-Eze North LGA of Enugu State.

The event is part of the activities to commemorate the 2022 World Tuberculosis Day which held on Thursday, March 24th, 2022.

Adults and children came out happily in their numbers to receive the free medical outreach brought to their locality just as the medical personnel used the event to create public awareness and understanding about the global epidemic of tuberculosis and efforts to eliminate the disease.

Speaking for Caritas Nigeria, Genevieve Orji who is the Technical Specialist Care/Treatment and also doubles as the State Team Lead for TB in Enugu State  said that Aguibeje is a high TB vulnerable community that necessitates the free diagnosis and treatment of the disease among other diseases in the community.
