Up to 1000 children and adults were offered free medical services such as free eye screening and distribution of eye glasses, free medical consultation and treatment, cancer screening, blood pressure and blood sugar checks among others.
Convener of Arise Women Siju Iluyomade said the free medical treatment was provided to help people who could not afford the medical cost of treating diabetics and hypertension.
Iluyomade told Xinhua that their activities are geared toward promotion of preventive healthcare at the primary level.
A beneficiary of the free medical clinic, Adebayo Olasubomi, said the treatment would enhance the healthiness of the people in the state, adding that only a few people in the vicinity had access to medical treatment and check-ups.
“We thank the group for catering for our health. I urge other groups to also embark on things of this kind that give good gesture and bring development to our health,” she said. Enditem
