UNUBIKO Foundation Clears Over N10m Medical Bills In Abia

A non-governmental humanitarian organisation, UNUBIKO Foundation, has cleared over N10 million in hospital bills of indigent residents at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Umuahia, Abia State.


The intervention which took place between October 16 and 17, 2023, was to provide aid to indigent residents unable to clear their hospital bills and are compelled to remain in the hospital pending when the debts are paid.


The UNUBIKO Foundation also extended its intervention to beneficiaries from the Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal Constituency who were on admission at the hospital.


The Founder/Chairman of UNUBIKO Foundation, Chief Chijioke Ume, who holds the traditional tile Ike Abam, said clearing hospital bills of indigent residents would help them return to their homes, reunite with their families and resume their everyday lives.
