A Non-Governmental Organisation, Pistis Empowerment Foundation, has said it will provide surgical and medical treatments to 5,000 people for its 2022 Ubomi Medical Outreach.

A statement by PEF said the outreach would hold from Monday 4th to Friday 8th July 2022 at Mother and Child Centre, Ogombo Road, Ajah, Lagos.

Pistis Foundation is a social intervention vehicle of The Elevation Church.

Ubomi is a week-long free surgical and medical outreach that caters to thousands of under-served members of its community.

The founder, Godman Akinlabi, who is also the Global Lead Pastor of The Elevation Church, said, “Many years ago, we realised what faith-based non-for-profit organisations can do to ameliorate the sufferings of the underprivileged.

“Our response to this gap was to create a special vehicle to cater to the needs of these people, outside the religious sphere with a special focus on Health, Education, and Shelter,” said

According to the General Manager, Pistis Foundation, Leonard Thomas, said its salient objective is in the health area; to provide access to quality healthcare for beneficiaries in select target communities.

He said, “Ubomi is targeted at the under-served and under-privileged; those who may not have access to health care or cannot afford it.”
