The McCarthy Assembly of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) has donated medical supplies worth about GH¢4,500 to the Ga South Municipal Government Hospital.
Some of the items donated include drip stands, side rails, disposable gloves, lab tubes, cotton tip applicators, oxygen tubes, insulin syringes and asthmatic inhalers among many others.
In addition, the church organized a free medical screening in the areas of blood pressure, treatment of malaria, diabetes, hepatitis and free eye screening for her members and the general public.
Furthermore, the church registered about a hundred people to the National Health Insurance Scheme free of charge, at a cost GH¢1,500. The gesture, according to Rev. Edward K. Agyemfra, was part of activities to mark the church’s 13th anniversary, with the theme – ‘Supernatural breakthrough’.
Presenting the items, Rev. Agyemfra said the ICGC shares the belief that man is not just a spirit and, therefore, the body must also be catered for, hence their motivation to give back to society to augment government’s efforts at strengthening the wellbeing of the people.
Dr. Frank Voado, Acting Medical Superintendent received the items on behalf of the Ga South Government Hospital.
He expressed appreciation for the gesture and promised to put the items into good use in order to benefit community.
