?Residents of Ada Foah in the Ada East District of the Greater Accra region have benefitted from a week free mobile medical clinic set up by the Revival Restoration Centre Assembly of God (RRC-A/G).

?The medical clinic, which forms part of the church?s Missions 2014 activities, saw some senior medical doctors of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital KBTH, Accra attend to residents who showed up at the centre.

The clinics were set up at Dziegrokope, Sege, Kasseh Zongo, Totimekope, Anyakpo, Puga, and Elenanyo.

The Roman Ridge-based church provided residents with free medicines, food supplements and?? laboratory tests.

Head pastor of the church, Apostle Dr. Alex Kweku Nkrumah, told the media that the church was simply following God?s command which urges Christians and churches to reach out to the world with the gospel and solve key issues that bother society.

He said RRC-A/G chose the Ada East district because it wanted to reach out to the people and also following some trips he made to the area he realized they needed urgent help.

?Assemblies of God (A/G) Ghana has designated the month of March in every year for missions. This is in line with our activities here and more,? he said.

Apostle Nkrumah urged churches to look at the societies in which they operate and reach out to them by providing some of their physical needs.

The church has over the past 16 years reached out to communities across the country as part of its missions. Key among them includes Jiasekan, Senya Breku, Ada, Newtown, Dworwulu among others.

Head of Public Health at KBTH, Dr. Philip Amoo, told journalists that of 1,600 patients screened, 96 per cent had malaria while a sizeable number had hypertension, skin disorders, impaired vision, gonorrhoea.

He father stated that two people had HIV while majority of the females had vaginal candidiasis.

Dr. Amoo urged the Ghana Health Service (GHS) to set up mobile clinics in inland communities to constantly check the health of residents since most did not have the NHIS cards.

He advised the residents to practise proper hygiene methods to ensure that they stay healthy.

The medical team was made up of eight doctors, three nurses, one pharmacist and three pharmacy assistants.

The KBTH public health director said all complicated cases were referred to the district and regional hospitals and that the church will foot the accompanying bills.

The church also had open-air evangelism, school evangelism, house to house evangelism, leadership seminars and Christian film shows as part of the project.
