Church Of­fers Fee Med­i­cal Treat­ment To Idimu Com­mu­nity

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - IBRU CENTRE -

OVER 600 pa­tients, com­pris­ing Chris­tians and non-chris­tians have ben­e­fit­ted from the free med­i­cal treat­ment or­gan­ised by King­dom of Light Min­istries (KLM), in col­lab­o­ra­tion with King­dom Care Group Depart­ment for Idimu com­mu­nity and en­vi­rons, last week. The pro­gramme, which started eight years ago, ac­cord­ing to the Pre­sid­ing Pas­tor, Dr. Samson Mak­inwa, was used to meet the health chal­lenges of per­sons, es­pe­cially those liv­ing in the Idimu axis of La­gos. He said the church usu­ally uses the oc­ca­sion to re­duce the hard­ship peo­ple are fac­ing in this re­ces­sion pe­riod. Dur­ing the pro­gramme, dif­fer­ent med­i­cal per­son­nel were en­gaged to ad­dress health chal­lenges of pa­tients in the com­mu­nity.

Ad­vis­ing pa­tients to adopt a healthy life­style, Dr. Vi­o­let Iheana­cho said they should eat the right food, ex­er­cise reg­u­larly, live in serene and clean en­vi­ron­ment, as well as drink clean wa­ter and avoid self­med­i­ca­tion, es­pe­cially lo­cal herbs, with no ap­pro­pri­ate dosage. The pa­tients were tested and screened for dif­fer­ent ail­ments such as hep­ati­tis, blood group, di­a­betic, hy­per­ten­sion and eye test, among oth­ers. They were also given free eye­glasses and drugs.

De­scrib­ing what the church has done as ser­vice to hu­man­ity, Pas­tor Mak­inwa, said: “KLM, through the King­dom Care Group, has been spon­sor­ing stu­dents to var­i­ous in­sti­tu­tions of learn­ing from pri­mary to univer­sity level and we also of­fer free ed­u­ca­tional ma­te­ri­als. The church has do­nated bore­holes and street lights to the com­mu­nity, and has been main­tain­ing ad­join­ing roads and clean­ing the sur­round­ing in the com­mu­nity.

On how to over­come re­ces­sion, the Pre­sid­ing Pas­tor urged Nige­ri­ans to be pa­tient with gov­ern­ment. He ad­vised them to en­gage in agri­cul­ture and small and medium scale en­trepreneur­ship (SME). The Chair­man of King­dom Care Group, Brother Uche Nwogu, said the church also gave out such food­stuff as rice, veg­etable oil, toma­toes, cook­ing in­gre­di­ents and money to less priv­i­leged per­sons dur­ing the Yule­tide.
