EMPOWERED BY YOU, WE WORK EVERY DAY TO SAVE AND TRANSFORM LIVES IN AFRICA.
The GEANCO Foundation saves and transforms the lives of the poor and vulnerable in Africa.
We lead special medical missions, run maternal and infant health programs, and support primary schools in Nigeria. We are working with Stanford Hospital and many others to develop a world-class hospital in the country.
Together, we can bring Health and Hope to those in desperate need of both. Please join us!
