As part of his resolve to bring health care to the doorstep of the good people of Kwabre East, the Executive Director of Onyina Project and Resource Centre(OPRC) Mr. Onyina Acheampong Akwasi Gyamfi organised it’s 3rd annual free health screening on the 26th December, 2022.
The program which took place at four different centers in the constituency recorded a mammoth turnout with people coming from at least ten communities to get themselves screened for various ailments with medication given afterwards. Participants were seen seated in a queue with their number cards as early as 9:00am, and refreshed while waiting for their turn to be attended to.
In an interview with the Executive Director of Onyina Project and Resource Center, Mr. Onyina Acheampong Akwasi Gyamfi said it was his believe that, the OPRC survived as a business because of those who patronised it.
“It is right that after making some income from the business, we give back to society to pave way for the less privileged to also benefit, this would in a way make them aware of their health conditions,” he said.
“The ones that can be treated immediately would be done because the drugs are equally free and the ones that needs full care attention would be referred for further treatments,”
“Mr. Onyina who is also a philanthropist in his remarks said he planned to extend his philantropical works to cover more communities in the near future.” He added.
The health screening which was on the theme “Your Health, Our Concern,” screened people for blood pressure screening, Eye, general consulting, prescription and offered medical consultations as well.
About 500 participants, including children, aged women and men as well as the youth participated in the exercise.
Mr. Onyina commended Hon. Simon Adu Boateng kwabre east constituency treasurer for his immense support in cash and kind. Also to all Doctors, nurses, physicians and all volunteers who contributed to making the program a successful one. Also a very big thank you to the MP, MCE and the constituency executives and everyone who contributed in making the program a reality.
Indeed we rise by lifting others!
