A statement from the company, signed by ANRML Public Relations Officer, Mr. Babatunde Olanrewaju Akeem, said the main objectives of the camp focused mainly on the local community were to provide medical care and treatment; create awareness and educate people about healthcare; identify and address health issues in a community; promote preventive healthcare and reduce the incidence of diseases and finally provide access to medical care and treatment to people who cannot afford it.

The camp was organized by ANRML and was completely managed by inhouse doctors. More than 200+ people mostly women, children and elderly benefited from the camp.

The team of doctors and medical staff from ANRML undertook health checkups of individuals to know about their medical history, current ailments and prescribe the right medicines and lifestyle improvements.
