Foundation provides free medical services to 250 patients in Anambra

About 250 elderly per­sons have benefitted from the second edi­tion of free medical outreach services from Errdon Foun­dation in Oba, Idemili South Council of Anambra state.
The one day medical mis­sion was designed to address some of the medical condi­tion associated with aging like high blood pressure, diabetes and eye problems.
Speaking, Dr Rebecca Chuk­wu, said High Blood Pressure and high sugar level were the dominant cases among the el­derly and the younger gener­ation.
Chukwu who described high blood pressure and high sugar level as silent killers, advocated for regular medi­cal checks and medication to avoid degeneration and com­plications associated with the twin silent killers.
She recommended reduced intake of carbohydrate, high cholesterol food and exercise with good diet to check the rate of adverse health cases.
One of the beneficiaries, Mr Enoch Onwuemelie who went home with free reading glass­es and drugs said it was a great relief for him.
The chairman Errdon Foun­dation, Dr Chibuzor Nwo­kolo said the initiative was part of his family’s contribu­tion toward complementing the efforts of government in boosting the healthcare of the people.
Nwokolo who was repre­sented Mrs Chigozie Okonkwo said the foundation was set up in honour of their eighty one year old father in appreciation to God for keeping him hale and hearty.
