“Dr. Violet Iheanacho, who attended to patients spoke on depression, as a mood disorder that causes low mood, sadness and why they should avoid it. She also urged the people to seek medical attention immediately they notice changes in their body system, especially now that we are experiencing serious economic challenges.
“Kingdom of Light Ministries, through the Kingdom Care Group, also sponsors less privileged children on scholarship at all levels from primary to university. We built borehole, where people in the community collect free water from, as well as, street lights, aside maintaining the surrounding roads in the locality,” he said.
