Miracle At Edo IDP Camp



 
Dr. Asogwa
Members of a Lagos based non-profit making and non-governmental organisation, Doctors Health Initiative, were held spellbound when they witnessed a miracle at the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Uhogua, Ovia North East Local Government Area of Edo State.

The team, led by Dr. Nkechi Asogwa, on a similar visit a year ago had seen the special case of a young boy of I6 years who was diagnosed of having a broken femor only for them to see the youngster walk perfectly well when they arrived the camp one year later. He had been miraculously healed.

He broke the head of the femor in the process of running away from the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents when they invaded his village some kilometres from Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

"We started raising funds through friends to assist him to carry out the surgery. And we were told when we visited the camp this year that miraculously he has been healed without any surgery carried out.
"As a medical professional, I was amazed. I could not believe it until I saw him myself beaming with smiles and walking freely. He was walking without any pain whatsoever."

Dr. Asogwa, led the team comprising medical personnels, students of the Lagoon Secondary School and Maryland Comprehensive High School (both in Lagos) and other volunteers, on a three day programme.
The programme comprised training the people catering skills; teaching them some core academic subjects; attending to their health issues etc. 

To her, " The essence is that they could make some of these things and sell to make some monies to assist themselves and the children.
"Our plans is to start with five persons we have trained among the number then make provision for soft loans for them as a take off grant," she disclosed.

Going further, she stated: "It was indeed a impactful sort of session as the students in the team recounted beautiful experiences they had in the classes with the IDP students. "They told me their eagerness to learn and interest for education is a big kudos to the centre."

She thanked all the corporate bodies that gave them their hands of support to ensure that the programme was successful.

Pastor in charge of the  IDP camp, Mr Solomon Folorunsho, seized the opportunity to thank the group for their efforts and all the assistance they have been giving the camp.
