We are mostly concerned with the sanctity of life, hence the slogan: AVAHI! LIFE FIRST. Every member is trained to place a high premium on saving life within the minimum possible time. Integrity, honesty, industry, reliability and accountability are integral parts of AVAHI to ensure safe keeping and utmost care for the victims’ properties and welfare respectively
The incessant cases of deaths through accidents on the Nigerian roads have become alarming in this last decade. Most of these deaths could be averted if adequate measures to rescue the victims and taken for proper treatments at the barest minimum time were taken. This initiative is therefore envisioned to provide the necessary prompt assistance to the accident’s victim that would minimize or totally eliminate careless deaths resulting from such accidents.
Although there are other government agencies entrusted with the safety of road transport in Nigeria, it is pertinent to note that such agencies do not stand as sureties or provide enough friendly relationship to stand as a “next of kin” that would facilitate easy access to treatment by the health center where the victims are being referred to.
To this end, AVAHI, a non-governmental organization is founded and managed to assist accidents’ victims by making a prompt response to the scene of the accident, take proper inventory of the affected victims with their properties and take same to the appropriate nearest health center and/or AVAHI office for immediate treatment and recording for proper keeping of the victims’ items respectively.
To stop or reduce to the barest minimum, cases of careless deaths of road accidents victims on the Nigerian roads.
To mobilize resources to the scene of accidents for rescue operations in the barest minimum time; provide an adequate rescue by administering first aid and evacuate victims to a nearby health center for proper medication and to ensure a cordial “next of kin” relationship between the victim and the operators before re-uniting with the immediate family of the victim.
