Osinachi Widows Health Centre Completed

Osinachi Widows Association, Onicha LGA, Ebonyi State

Osinachi Widows Health Centre Completed

Amanato-Anioma Isu is a remote agrarian Community in Onicha Local Government Area of Ebonyi State. The Community, like many others, lack basic social amenities including basic health care services. The distance of the Community to the state capital takes approximately three hours due to the dilapidated nature of their road.

Moreover, movement of goods and services become worse during the rains, as Community members find it difficult conveying farm produce to nearby markets, while basic goods and services are difficult to be supplied to them from the city too. These twin challenge of health care services and access road has greatly affected the socio-economic well-being of the Community.

In view of the above, one of the Vulnerable Groups in the Community, Osinachi Widows, sought the assistance of the Ebonyi State Community and Social Development Agency (EB-CSDA) in the construction of a health centre and hand pump borehole. It is on record that the Group has successfully completed the construction of the health centre with laboratory and pharmaceutical services to the delight of the entire community.  

Today, both men, women, youths and the elderly are happy for it, noting that the indigens now have a place they can easily seek for medical attention as the issue of travelling long distance to access medical care has been eliminated.

Interestingly, all widows and children receive free medical treatment at the newly constructed health centre. Also, other women in the Community, now receive both ante/post-natal medical services and immunization at the centre.

The Osinachi Widows Group, deeply expressed their gratitude to the State Government for partnering with the World Bank-assisted Community and Social Development Project (CSDP). No doubt, the presence of the health centre has greatly improved the health of women and children in the Community.
