PHI is a helper of the poor, they give hope to the hopeless, to the downtrodden and suffering while those given up for dead were more or less resurrected by them. That’s how I see PHI. The founder is still the Iko Ibanga I knew in Holy Family College in the seventies; he hasn’t changed. Without NGOs like PHI, a lot of the Systematic Development Goals objectives would not be realized.
There are so many experiences I will never forget, like a man who had a tumor for years and could not afford anything; it was in PHI that he met his healing. Surgery is surgery, once you see someone who has been suffering and has no means to help himself, when you proffer solution to his problem, it gives you joy and a desire to keep on going for projects.
Medicine depends on experience and they say, if you don’t use it, you lose it. When you go on PHI projects and you are serious, the experience that you get there will be vast and nothing compared to what you get in your clinic. The motivation is the joy of being able to make a difference.
I have had numerous experiences on projects, though one that stands out for me was when my mother in-law went to a hospital and was diagnosed of appendicitis and needed to have her appendix removed. When she came on the project site, she was examined before surgery and it was discovered that she was wrongly diagnosed. This tells you about the quality of health care at the rural level where PHI has been doing great works.
Volunteering with PHI has been fun. You will be accommodated and be given very good food. Even as a Muslim I join the devotion and morning prayers. I work with PHI as a Christian organization because of the passion they have to help the poor. God teaches us that. What PHI is doing is to make people happy, at least those that are sick and cannot afford the hospital bill.
