Lagos church launches dialysis, dental units

07 September 2015, 07:48Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - Nigerian patients have received a major boost after a church launched a dialysis centre and a dental unit in Lagos.

The project is the brainchild of the Christian Church of God, which has also reopened its popular charity shop.

The launch featured free liver screening, free dental consultation as well as tele consultation with the team from the Global Hospital Mumbai India, a partner of the Healing Stripes Hospital.

The Healing Stripes Hospital is one of the expert health care facilities in Lagos, established in 2010 by the City of David Parish of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (COD RCCG) as part of its Christian Social Reform to spread health and cheer in its community and ensure that quality health care is accessible, affordable and reliable.

The Dialysis Centre which is adding more machines for its operations was opened in September 2013 out of the need to contribute a quota to the treatment of patients with kidney disease.

The church noted that 30 million Nigerians are suffering from kidney disease, with only 200 machines available to cater to them, instead of the 12 000 machines that are needed.

“The urge to fill this vacuum is what motivated the expansion of the dialysis centre with new machines,” said Pastor Idowu Iluyomade, Senior Pastor of RCCG.
