This humanitarian group or movement started as an online Facebook Group by a Consultant Paediatrician at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idiaraba Lagos on the 20th of July, 2015 by name Dr. Gbemisola Boyede.
Ask The Paediatricians is in about thirty-one states in Nigeria and are called chapters.
In achieving its goals of promoting the good health and well-being of indigent children in Nigeria, Ask The Paediatricians holds periodic community medical outreaches.
“We do two main outreaches annually targeted at indigent children in under-served communities throughout the country with no regular access to healthcare services” said Mrs Anayo-Chukwu, Adamawa Chapter State Coordinator.
These Outreaches feature health talks, mass de-worming, nutritional assessments, healthy lunch-packs, free medical & dental consultations, basic lab tests, essential drugs and clothes.
And like every humanitarian outreach it involves a lot of financial commitment hence the need for Nigerians to help support their mission by contributing their quota no matter how little.
“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” ―Winston S. Churchill
