Update on 'Medicare' Trust

Happy New Year to all our readers and thank you for supporting ‘Postcard from Lagos’.

The response to the ‘Medicare’ post was overwhelming. Pledges of support came from Nigeria, Europe and North America. We have gone a step further to properly set up 'Medicare' as a charitable organisation and the registration process is ongoing. Apparently it is a long process to register a charity in Nigeria.

We have assembled a team of individuals to serve as the Board of Reference for the organisation.

Dr Bayo Adesioye

Mrs Jibike Agboola

Dr Ayodele Ajayi

Dr Tonye Ajiteru

Mr Stephen Clarke

Dr Sola Fola-Alade

Mrs Taiwo Mayuku

Dr Ovo Oghuvbu

Mr Segun Olasode

Mr Deoye Oshowole

Dr. George Sekoni

Mr Tayo Sonuga

Sola Wilton-Waddell

All of these people have been tapped because of their passion to make a difference in the lives of ordinary Nigerians. Each of them has brought to the Trust their wealth of experience including international charity, business and medical skills.

Appreciation to those who have pledged to support 'Medicare in some form. Further developments will be published here on 'Postcard from Lagos'.
