Hundreds of indigenes and residents of Agbarha-Otor Kingdom in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State have benefitted from free medical treatment provided by Rotary Club of Agbarha-Otor District 9141, Nigeria.
The free medical treatment was carried out for two days at the Agbarha town hall in Agbarha-Otor Kingdom.
It is a period of celebrations but celebrating under ill-health would defeat the whole essence of the festivity.
For this purpose and others, the Rotary Club of Agbarha-Otor District 9141 on Tuesday, 20th and Wednesday, 29th December 2021, mobilised health personnel with necessary apparatus and drugs for free medicare for both indigenes and residents of the kingdom.
The young and elderly persons from across communities that make up the kingdom thronged the Agbarha town hall to get attended to at no cost of theirs.
One after the other in a very orderly manner, relevant checks and consultation with a doctor were carried out on the beneficiaries before required drugs were prescribed to them.
They were full gratitude to the Rotary Club of Agbarha-Otor considering the huge relief the free medicare has afforded them, especially during this yuletide.
Chartered President of Rotary Club of Agbarha-Otor, Rotarian Ominimini Obiuwevbi, who earlier declared open the two-day free medical treatment said it is the first phase of the medical programme of the club that was launched on September 11, 2021.
Chief Ominimini noted that Rotary is committed to making life more meaningful for the people particularly the poor and less privileged in the society.
Assistant District Governor in charge of Zone 22 Rotarian Judith Nuvie Enamuotor, applauded the Rotary Club of Agbarha-Otor for its bold initiatives particularly in the areas of health and education.
One of the doctors for the programme, Brai Omozegbai, who was impressed with the turnout of indigenes and residents of the area used the opportunity to appeal to the government to post more doctors to the area.
As the beneficiaries of the free medical treatment programme prepare to crossover to the new year, they are full of joy that they will do so in good health.
