4 000 receive free health care through foundation

28 December 2014, 17:57

Omu-Aran - Dr Musa Bello, the Coordinator of Aro Bamgbose Free Health Care Empowerment Programme in Kwara, says no fewer than 4 000 people have benefited from the programme since its inception a year ago.

Bello said this during the Bi-annual Free Healthcare Programme organised by the foundation in Omu-Aran, Irepodun Local Government Area on Sunday.

The two-day programme attracted people from the three wards in Omu-Aran and the adjoining communities in Oro, Oko, Aran-Orin and Oke-Onigbin.

Some of the beneficiaries of the programme received free test, treatment and drugs for different ailments such as hypertension, diabetes, malaria and pelvic ulcer diseases.

They also received health tips on breast cancer awareness and prevention of Ebola Virus Disease outbreak.

Bello said the programme was being organised to coincide with the Eid-el-Kabir and Christmas periods in order to achieve wider coverage.

He said the foundation’s intensive awareness campaigns through churches, mosques, schools and markets had helped a lot in view of the large turnout of people who attended the programme.

Chief Adekunle Oyinloye, the Chairman and sole financier of the foundation, urged Nigerians to always take advantage of the numerous free healthcare services being organised to know their health status.

Oyinloye said staging of the programme was informed by the need to raise the health standard of the beneficiaries.
