The New Patriotic Party (NPP) 2020 Parliamentary Candidate for the Tamale Central Constituency, Dr. Ibrahim Anyars has offered free medical services to hundreds of his constituents at his second Free Medical Outreach through his Repairer Foundation.
The medical outreach held on December 14, 2019 in all the 18 electoral areas in the Tamale Central Constituency, recorded hundreds of the aged, children, women and the youth checking their health status and being offered medication for various conditions – malaria, typhoid fever, Hepatitis B. and some communicable diseases at each centre.
Dr. Anyars who is also the CEO of NABCO, said he prioritised the health and welfare of his constituents hence the free medical outreach at their doorstep, adding that it is the right approach to directly affect the lives of people in the constituency.
He revealed that the free medical outreach was being organised under his foundation, ‘The Repairer Foundation’ which seeks to improve and empower the marginalized in the society.
“It is the goal of Repairer Foundation to create lasting difference in the lives of the people through wealth creation. Repairer foundation therefore seeks to develop the individual capacities and encourage them to take charge of their lives”, Dr. Anyars said.
Dr. Anyars noted that the exercise will be repeated from time to time to allow constituents and the vulnerable in the society access quality healthcare.
On his part, Mr. Kofi Asamoah, Vice Chairman of the NPP Global Medical Team who is supporting the outreach, disclosed that over 200 medical team members including Physician Assistants, Medical Doctors, Nurses, Pharmacists and Auxiliary Staff were dispatched to the 18 Centers with support from the Barihama Ladies.
He revealed that the overwhelming turnout speaks volumes of the importance of the exercise to the ordinary person in the constituency, noting that majority of the cases recorded were malaria and general bodily pains.
According to him, patients whose illness couldn’t be catered for including hypertensive patients were referred to the Tamale Teaching Hospital for further treatment.
Mr. Asamoah also admonished all and sundry to drink more water following the setting in of the harmattan season. This he said will prevent dehydration.
