The Lagos Island East Local Council Development Area kicked off a free medical mission on Monday to cater for free medical advice, check-up, treatment and minor surgery for members of its community.
The free medical mission which was organised by the Sole Administrator, Mr. Bashir Aare in collaboration with Association of Nigerian Physicians in America (ANPA) took place at the Freedom Park, Broad Street, Lagos
Speaking at the kick-off of the event, Aare said he was able to partner with the organisation because he is a foundation member of the Nigeria in Diaspora Organisation Americans and has a relationship with the medical chapter.
The council boss said the initiative became necessary because a few people have access to health care. He reiterated that the objective is to ensure a healthy community .
The leader of the team, Dr. Adeyanju Johnson, said diagnosis and treatment would serve as immediate prevention for some diseases. He encouragd the people to come out for the treatment of their ailments while those who require minor surgery would be attended to.
Two of the beneficiaries, Mr. Habeeb Abbas and Madam Maria Adeyanju appreciated the initiative and thanked the sole administrator for bringing succour to the sick in the community.
