Protecting The Community
Olido is one of the villages of communities in Enugu Ezike, South East Nigeria and home to 36 different villages, with population over 280,000 people.
The only health facility is poorly resourced dilapidated Community Health Centre.
In 2017 The Olido people had a dramatic spike in premature deaths due to the lack of basic healthcare or treatment for preventative illnesses.
