Verbum Incarnatum: An Academic Journal of Social Justice


Nigeria is a country that lacks sufficient medical facilities to meet the needs of the population. Most people rely on folk medicine and dibias when they are ill. There are many reasons for this, including the expense, scarcity of medical facilities, fear of modern medicine, and acceptance of traditional beliefs and practices. In response to the needs of the people of my village I was able to help start a children’s hospital which has now been expanded to serve the health care needs of all the people.
