11 Oct MY PHI STORY BY DIMTANG BISHMANG

Broken, sad and still wondering why God was letting me go through such a burden was the mind with which I came for my first Pro-Health International trip. I had just found out that a little glitch in my final year first semester had resulted in an extra year. I was meant to be back in school but I lacked the zeal and joy to go back. While at home wondering how to return and going through a mini-depression state, my cousin asked how I felt about going on a volunteering trip and I was like yes, because I needed to get away from the normal. So I joined a small team from Abuja to Jos on Saturday 5th January 2013 and proceeded to Taraba State on Sunday 6th January 2013. I knew it was to help people and I knew that it was going to be good, but I had no idea what lay ahead. Apart from the wonderful volunteers I met, God was also waiting for me there. All the morning devotions were a direct message from God to me about how I was to trust His decision for me and trust the plans He had for me.

04 May THE HEART TO SERVE HUMANITY

The desire to reach as many people as possible through medical outreaches in rural communities has always been the heart cry for us at Pro-Health International. So whenever we have the opportunity to do so, we do it with all joy and happiness. Service is what we live for.

In the past two months, we have been to six communities - Ibesikpo Asutan, Ikot Abasi, Ikot Ekpene, Wukari, Jalingo and Tangaza - meeting the healthcare needs of people who can't afford quality healthcare. Three sites in Akwa Ibom state in March 2016, two sites in two weeks in Taraba state in April and then one site in Sokoto state still in April.

01 Feb SHARE YOUR PHI STORY WITH US AND WE WILL PUBLISH IT

With numerous interests and a wide range of skills, I could have gone anywhere and done anything but because my passion for helping the needy is the most important, I decided to – for a brief period of time – volunteer with Pro-Health International. I know this may sound like a cliché but I can’t help but say that this was the best decision I ever made. I remember my first experience like it was yesterday. The team had arrived the site to meet a large crowd of people already waiting for us. As we walked towards them, my senses were overwhelmed by the sight and smell of sickness and poverty and I wondered whether I was meant for this line of work. But as I began to interact with the patients, something amazing started happening inside me…..
