Supporting: Rise & Walk: Medical Mission to Nigeria for The GEANCO Foundation


Campaign has ended.


Dear Friends and Family,

I will once again be heading to Awka, Nigeria with the GEANCO foundation for a surgical mission to do hip and knee replacements. This coming November, we plan to perform 30 or more joint replacements for patients in tremendous need of our services. For those of you who donated in 2015, your generosity made our mission a great success. I hope you can find it in your heart to donate once again. To those of you who are new to the GEANCO Foundation and the Rise and Walk mission, please check out this link for more information:

From November 10 - 19, the GEANCO Foundation ( will undertake a special medical mission to Nigeria.  For the fifth time, GEANCO's surgical team will perform hip and knee replacements on poor patients there, where the need is almost unimaginable. 

Each of our mission team members is working hard to raise money to help defray travel expenses and the cost of our supplies and equipment.  Your donation will help us impact so many lives, please give generously!  

Thank you in advance for your support!

How would you like to support?
