The purpose of Dr. Enyi Okereke life's work was to reform and improve the quality of health care in Nigeria by donating his time and performing surgeries in rural areas. His goal was to also train doctors in surgical procedures with a specific passion and focus on trauma and emergency care in Nigeria. Unfortunately, Dr Okereke's, untimely death prevented him from bringing his dream to fruition. The ENYI MD foundation, was therefore created in his memory to continue his work specifically focusing on emergency medical care in Nigeria. I applaud Dr. Enyi Okereke's efforts in health care, and the potential that this foundation has to save countless lives in Nigeria with suitable emergency medical care. I encourage everyone to volunteer and spread the word about the ENYI MD Foundation so that his work continues posthumously.

ENYI MD Foundation was founded to help reduce the frequency at which precious lives are lost to preventable deaths in Nigeria. This is a very worthy cause, considering how many deaths are reported daily because of lack of emergency medical help. This lack of emergency medical help is what led to the untimely death of Dr. Enyi Okereke, in whose honor the foundation was formed. He died in Nigeria on a Medical Mission, doing the only thing he knows how to do; helping others. In the short time the foundation has been in existence, several Automated External Defibrillators ( AED) have been distributed in Nigeria, and more are in the process of been deployed.

Enyi MD Foundation is an important nonprofit that extends the legacy of a great medical leader, Professor Enyi Okereke, M.D., Pharm.D., who sacrificed his own life to improve the delivery of health care to Nigeria. Dr. Okereke died because of inadequate health care services when he was on a mission trip to improve health care delivery in Nigeria. Therefore, hundreds of his medical colleagues and friends have rallied to continue his legacy with Enyi MD Foundation and improve health care delivery in Nigeria. Enyi's memory is a blessing to the world that is in desperate need of justice, mutual respect, and health, and in this spirit, I wholeheartedly support the mission of Enyi MD Foundation.

I participated in the run that this wonderful organization put on at Cooper River, NJ on 9/23/12. The volunteers were so kind and soft spoken and caring. I spoke to Miriam and she told me about the loss of her husband due to the lack of necessary medical equipment which might have saved his young life. The speakers gave such touching speeches and I believe that this organization should have more support and recognition as it raises money for and promotes needed awareness of life-saving technology which is taken for granted in the USA.Without a question of a doubt, this foundation is essential.
