Dr. Mohammed Alkali explained that the hospital will hopefully take-off before the first year anniversary of the association’s EXCO slated for November 2016.
According to him, the association will collaborate with local and international organizations to provide quality medical care and support in various medical fields.‎

Represented by former National Ex-Officio of the association, Dr. Abdullahi Danlami, Isma’il said that although the main aim of the association is to render ‎medical services to the less privileged, it also focuses on the prevention of communicable diseases and epidemics as witnessed in the case of Ebola and Lassa fever recently.
