The Four Square Gospel Church at Kasoa in the Central Region, has organised a free medical care and outreach programme for the people.
Reverend Samuel Aggrey, Head Pastor of the Church, said the free medical care and outreach programme portrays that the church does not only cater for the spiritual needs of the congregation but their health needs as well.
Later in an interview, Dr Ryan Venis, Medical Doctor from the United States and Head of the Medical team said the visit to Ghana was influenced by an organisation called Global Solutions run by a Ghanaian Solomon Badu in the US.
He said Solomon approached the church to bring a team of health care providers for free medical screening.
Dr Venis adding that the team of seven healthcare providers includes three doctors, three nurses and a pharmacist.
Dr Venis said the medications were donated to the Group while some were purchased in the States to run the mobile clinics.
‘’It is our mission to see as many patients as we can, provide whatever aid we can in the hope that we show a good example to be emulated by other groups and as well to be able provide a template for how these mobile clinics can be run and see what their needs are.
“So when we return, we can be better prepared in the future to meet the needs for the patients,’’ he said.
He said the team is expected to screen about 1,000 patients, and patients would be giving medication to treat ailments like skin rashes, joint pains, diabetes and pre natal care.
Dr Dennis Bortey, a Medical Doctor at the Ridge Hospital said two Ghanaian nurses and a Laboratory Technician are helping the US health care providers
Dr Bortey noted that the other areas the team would visit are Papase No 1, Abeka and Adenta. GNA
