Fire City Chapel (FCC), home of Word Fire Generation Ministries, on the 27th April, 2019 organized a free health screening at its premises for residents of the Teshie Camp 2 area.
The medical screening was in collaboration with the La General Hospital with support from the Lekma Hospital.
With the hallmark of love and impacting lives, the premises of FCC was packed to capacity early Saturday morning as the elderly, the young and children from the Teshie Nungua Township trouped in to enjoy the free health screening.
Dr. Ebenezer Oduro Mensah from the La General Hospital led a team of well-able and professional nurses, doctors and other health workers to attend to all and sundry who were present.
There were doctors and nurses from the La General Hospital, Lekma Hospital, Accra Psychiatric Hospital, Life Care Medical Center, Faith Mission Hospital, J.B. Opticals and Manna Hospital.
There were brief health awareness sessions from dental and ENT professionals who educated participants on best health care practices before the commencement of the screening. Indeed, it was all joy when the Fire Citizens began ushering the participants to the various health booths for their health needs to be addressed.
Participants had the opportunity to check their body mass index and blood pressure as well as test for malaria and receive the requisite treatment. Other medical services available included free eye screening, ear screening and dental screening.
Doctors were on call to attend to participants with health issues and free medication was prescribed and served to participants according to their needs.
Delighted and fulfilled participants expressed their appreciation to the lead Pastor of FCC, Apostle Charles Hackman and members of Fire City Chapel for the benevolent act.
They acknowledged that the free health screening was very helpful as it brought the ‘hospital close home’ and saved them financial costs they would have incurred going to the hospital and purchasing drugs.
They further expressed amazement at the warm reception given them by Fire Citizens.
Dr. Nii Quaye from the dental unit of the La General Hospital commended Fire City Chapel for the great work done and for a well-organized event.
Fire City Chapel’s philanthropic deeds extend to both the able and disabled communities. FCC partners with the H4P (Here for Perfection Organization) an NGO which for almost a decade has initiated and financed phenomenal projects to improve the state of disability in Ghana in the areas of education, health, training and development, media advocacy, sports amongst others.
The partnership fights the discrimination of persons with disability and works to improve the living conditions of persons with disability. Beneficiaries include persons with disability, special needs schools and institutions.
With the focus to help the vulnerable and marginalized groups, Fire City Chapel invites individuals, organizations, and groups to come on board and support this worthwhile initiative as it touches lives and leaves indelible heart prints. Fire City Chapel is at Teshie Camp 2 last stop adjacent Tru North College.
Life is a storehouse of unlimited possibilities, provisions and potential. Each day presents an opportunity not just for individuals to achieve their dreams but also to forge the pathway for others to achieve their dreams and live their lives to the fullest. There is a charge for all to heal the world and make it a better place for the entire human race. However, the healing of the world can only be achieved when the inhabitants of earth are healthy and strong.
