Pas­tor Son­nie Reng, co­or­di­na­tor of the pro­gramme, said the out­reach which be­gan last week ended with more than 6,000 per­sons re­ceiv­ing med­i­cal at­ten­tion. “We were able to at­tend to over 6, 000 people who came to us with dif­fer­ent med­i­cal chal­lenges and about 240 were op­er­ated upon. The mi­nor chal­lenge we had was that of vol­un­teers, some of whom un­cer­e­mo­ni­ously left us sim­ply be­cause there was no al­lowance,” he said.
