How The Team of Hope came into existence
As a social responsibility, Dr. Benjamin Akinkang initiated the free surgery concept in 2016. The initiative partly honored his late father. It also mitigated a situation he encountered on a trip to Sandema. The young medical officer resolved to ensure the poor can have access to surgical operations.
What started off with invitations to other health workers to join a cause became an organization. However, The Team of Hope currently has over 15 clinical officers. Many volunteers often join to execute this annual free surgery program.
This would be the 6th edition of this novel initiative. The economic standing of the rural lot makes this a timely program. Also, the intervention has saved many lives and continues to save more.
Dr. Benjamin Akinkang & Anthony Akumnyemi have availed themselves severally. They both previously involved themselves in medical outreach programs organized by BMY-Network. The Team of Hope is therefore a true indication of their selfless will to help the poor at all times. Service to mankind is service to nature.
