Naada Foundation organises free medical screening for three communities in West Gonja

The medical outreach according to the NGO is aimed at bringing the health needs to the doorstep of the people

The Naada Foundation has successfully conducted free medical services to over 800 residents of the Apilso electoral area in Damongo of the Savannah Region.

Residents received free health screening and other health services from the foundation founded by Naada Jinapor, the wife of the Member of Parliament for Damongo, Samuel Abu Jinapor.

The medical outreach according to the NGO is aimed at bringing the health needs to the doorstep of the people, particularly the vulnerable who cannot afford to access healthcare.

It is also designed to provide medical attention to hard-to-reach communities where people cannot access quality healthcare.

Residents from Kabampe, Kananto and Gurupe were screened for diabetes, sugar levels, blood pressure, and eye and dental diseases.

Speaking during the exercise, the executive director of the Foundation, Naada Jinapor said she was very impressed with the number of people who turned up to receive the free medical services.

“So much change, we’ve brought improvement into people’s lives …” she indicated.

She stated that the NGO does not only do a one-stop exercise, adding, “It doesn’t end here, we do follow-up and make sure that these patients receive all the necessary attention and get better. Because at the end of the day, we are looking forward to a healthy and vibrant community”.

She commended the Member of Parliament for Damongo, Samuel Abu Jonapor, for all the good work he is doing for the constituency.

Naada said a lot has been achieved under the Damongo MP (her husband) in his first four years that has earned him the name “man of action” with more developments springing up in all sectors of the constituency.

The assemblyman for the Apilso electoral area, Mohammed Hajara commended the Naada Foundation for coming to the aid of his electoral area, indicating that the medication given to the people will go a long way to help them.

He called on other organisations to emulate such initiatives to help the vulnerable in society.

“Some were sick and could not go to the clinic for medication but today because of lawyer’s wife, they’ve come to receive drugs without paying a penny” she added.

The NGO as part of its cooperate social responsibilities over the past years, has been providing free health screening for residents in the Damongo constituency in the Savannah Region and some parts of the Bono Region.
