In order to fulfil our calling as the “salt of the earth”and the “light of the world”, and as part of its corporate social responsibility and kingdom expansion strategy, The Capstone Church Without Walls embark on medical mission trips.
On Easter Monday April 21, 2014, The Capstone Church Without Walls led by the Senior Pastor took a team of experienced medical personnels and professional counsellors to meet the health needs of hundreds of Makoko residents. Medical relief materials which included drugs (esp. Anti-malarial, pain killers) and hundreds of mosquito nets were freely given to residents. The residents also enjoyed free medical consultation and professional healthy living counsel.
Makoko Is a slum neighbourhood located in Lagos, Nigeria.Established in the 18th century primarily as a fishing village, much of Makoko rests in structures constructed on stilts above Lagos Lagoon. Today the area is essentially self-governing with a very limited government presence in the community. Makoko has existed for over a century and derived its name from ‘Omi-Akoko’, which loosely translates as ‘ Waters ringed by palm trees’. Makoko and its two neighbouring communities namely Oko-Agbon and Ago Egun appears to have been neglected by government. The three communities are connected by a short bridge constructed over a wide canal in which there is stagnant, black and murky water.
We have since established a presence in the community with the objective of providing medical and spiritual healthcare on a regular basis to the community
