The Rotary clubs of Airport and Dzorwulu in Accra have organised a free health screening exercise for residents in Madina.
The exercise which took place at the Madina Market attracted over a thousand persons, most of who lived around the market.
Some of the health services included HIV testing, TB screening, diabetes and blood pressure screening, condom distribution, polio and measles vaccination.
Speaking to Citi News on the sidelines of the exercise, the President of the Dzorwulu chapter of the Rotary Club Johnson Dweban said the exercise formed part of the group’s quest to ensure a healthy society.
He added that the group had garnered a lot of resources to address some of the health challenges of society.
“We want to help society in any way we can to ensure a healthy society. Over the years we have embarked on several support programmes aimed improving the lives of Ghanaians,” he said.
He gave the assurance that the club will continue to offer such services to improve the quality of life of people.
Two beneficiaries of the exercise expressed their appreciation to the club and requested them to regularly visit the area with more social support services.
