Hundreds benefit from free medical outreach in Delta State
A group in the Catholic Church, Saint Vincent De Paul Society, has collaborated with Open Hands Amazing Charitable Organisation to provide free medical checkups and free medicines to the less privileged in Ibuzor, Delta State.
The event, which was the first of its kind in the area, took place at St. Augustine Catholic Church, Ibuzor.
About 400 elderly people and indigent ones turned out to benefit from the exercise and were all smiles at the end of the day. Many of the beneficiaries, who spoke with The Guardian, commended Agada for her gesture, noting that she braved the odds to reach out to the poor and needy in the town.
According to the President and founder of Open Hands Amazing Charitable Organisation, New York U.S., and United Kingdom, Chief Magdalene Nwaka Agada, the medical outreach was the organisation’s way of giving back to society as well as giving a life-line to the less privileged.
She disclosed that the organisation would hold more medical outreaches in the town and Enugu State later in the year, adding that people who have a need for eye and other surgeries would benefit from it.
Speaking after the event, assistant Parish Priest at St. Augustine’s Catholic Church, Ibuzor, Rev. Fr. Nicholas, extolled Agada’s selfless disposition with the instrumentality of her organisation.
