Empowerment Worship Centre to provide free health screening for over 15,000 Ghanaians
As part of the mandate by The Empowerment Worship Centre to evangelize to people in societies, the church is set to provide free health services to the underprivileged in the community.
The Empowerment Worship Centre, a Bible-believing church lead by Prophet Gideon Danso has announced the fifth edition of its annual medical and educational outreach programme, dubbed LifeCheck.
LifeCheck is a medical outreach programme which offers a wide range of medical services including general OPD services, specialist consultations, laboratory tests(ranging from blood sugar levels to prostatic specific antigen), eye screening, dental services among others.
This laudable initiative which was instituted by the church in 2014 will reach out to the vulnerable in the society through the sharing of the gospel and attending to their physical needs which includes donation of school bags, stationery, food packs and registration of beneficiaries onto the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).
This year’s event is set to take place at the La Bawawelashi Park on Saturday 15th September, 2018 with a target of reaching over 15,000 people within the catchment area.
In announcing the 2018 edition of LifeCheck, Prophet Gideon Danso, Lead Pastor of the church, indicated that even though regular medical checks were important, most people fail to do so due to cost or availability of time. He urged the general public to take advantage of this event to ensure that they are thoroughly checked out medically.
He added that the church’s mandate of preaching the gospel to the poor does not end at sharing the word, he noted that a greater part of the call to be a Christian includes acts of charity and offering of support to those in need to demonstrate the love the Love Christ.
Residents living in and around the La Baweleshi Park, Shiashie, Okponglo, Mempeasem, Adjiringanor and its surrounding areas including Madina are being entreated to take advantage of this rare opportunity to check their health status, get registered onto the NHIS and have an opportunity to speak to a qualified medical practitioner/ counsellor free of charge.
