The Maker’s House Chapel International (TMH), has organized a health screening program for residents of the Dome/Kwabenya community and its environs.
The event dubbed “The Free Mobile Clinic,” was organized in partnership with the US based Gold Coast Medical Foundation (GCMF) on Saturday May 28,2022. Hundreds of residents thronged the Dome Zonal Council Park, to be screened for health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, hepatitis, malaria, sickle cell, HIV, obesity, among others. Doctors and other health workers from the church partnered with their US based counterparts to administer care to the people.
The event forms part of the Church’s Corporate Social Responsibility and was aimed at bringing quality healthcare to the doorsteps of the people in and around the Dome-Kwabenya community where the church’s headquarters is located.
The General Overseer of The Maker’s House Chapel, Dr. Michael Boadi-Nyamekye, said it was increasingly worrying that many Ghanaians especially young people are being afflicted by preventable and sometimes curable diseases. He said it was important for citizens to be in good health, so they can contribute meaningfully to the Ghanaian economy.
“We believe that for every child of God to fulfil destiny, they must be in good health and early detection and treatment of any condition is the surest way to stay healthy. A healthy human resource is crucial to Ghana’s development and the continent, hence our decision to offer this free health screening and care.”
On his part the co-founder of The Gold Coast Medical Foundation, USA, Dr. Kwaku Boakye, said their partnership with The Maker’s House Chapel has made it possible for his organization to offer free and accessible health care to the hundreds of people who came for the screening.
“Part of our mandate at Gold Coast Medical Foundation is to make healthcare free and accessible to the needy so when you look at the trotro and taxi drivers, their mates, the traders, hawkers, market women and the hundreds of people that came, we are glad that we were able to make healthcare free for them.”
Beneficiaries of the free screening were also given medication by a mobile pharmacy, while those requiring further care were referred for additional medical checks.
