Not fewer than 200 patients including children with different ear and hearing problems have been treated and rescued from developing deafness through medical interventions by a charitable group, Suleiman Hearing and Educational Foundation.
The Foundation’s Director, Hearing Mission, Dr. Abdulmajid Suleiman disclosed this while carrying out a medical outreach in collaboration with the Muhammadu Buhari Specialist hospital in Kano over the weekend.
Dr. Suleiman said the 200 patients were out of the over 1,500 patients who beseiged the facility from neighbouring states to benefit from the medical outreach. He further said the target of the foundation was to reach out to 5,000 patients but was constrained due to it resources challenges.
Earlier, the Acting Medical Director, Muhammadu Buhari Specialist Hospital, Dr. Jamila Muu’ta commended the group for the gesture which she said will go a long way to alleviate the suffering of the people.
