Pastor Eboda called on government to make health insurance schemes accessible to all Nigerians, saying this will enable helpless people facing different health challenges in the country to get treatment.

President, Creating Healthy Communities and Kingship Medical Mission Incorporated, Dr. Adeleye Babarinsa said his team was partnering with the Church to impact on the community and help those in need.

“A lot of people develop eye problems when they are above 40 years, so, we are here with more than 200 reading glasses to freely give to those in need of them. We also gave a lot of eye drops and other eye medications. Many people also have pains around their body and, so, we have physiotherapists on ground to counsel and treat those passing through one kind of pains or the other. We also have dentists to care for those with dental problems.

“We have carried out surgeries for goitre, hyenas, and have removed breast lumps. We did quite varieties of surgeries including checkups. We did HIV tests, Hepatitis B, among others,” he said.
