SAVANNAH, GEORGIA (WSAV-TV) - Getting health treatment can be a challenge for people in Africa because many villages lack proper medical care.

St. Joseph's/ Candler Cardiologist Dr. Eugene Nwosu founder of the Goodness & Mercy Foundation does medical mission work in his native Nigeria.

A big dose of support greeted Dr. Nwosu today.

St. Joseph's/Candler, Southside Fire and the City of Savannah joined forces to help save the lives of patients a world away.

An ambulance was donated by Southside Fire and St. Joseph's/Candler is providing medical supplies.

"This is not just an ambulance it's also a mobile clinic so that we can reach many more villages for health screenings and vaccinations," says Dr. Nwosu.

The ambulance will be shipped to Nigeria.
