Project undertakes health screening exercise
Enugu State First Lady, Mrs. Monica Ugwuanyi, has called for more compassion from the society towards the vulnerable.
Mrs. Ugwuanyi made this assertion during a medical outreach at Amachara Ngwo in Udi Local Government Area organized by her humanitarian project, Ugo Touch of Life Foundation (U-TOLF).
Noting that the initiative would have a positive impact on rural residents’ health, the governor’s wife said: “Learn to be compassionate to one another to attract the blessings of the Lord. Your time is enough for us to touch somebody’s life. All hands must be on deck to move Enugu State forward. Let us start working together; It is important to touch the lives of our people especially the vulnerable ones.”
The leader of the project’s health department, Dr. Robinson Agu, advised that a high sense of hygiene should be maintained to stave off deadly diseases, adding that it’s important for people to always visit health centres for routine medical check-up.
The chairman of Udi Local Government Council, Dr. Hyacinth Ngwu, commended Mrs. Ugwuanyi for initiating the programme, noting that it would vastly enhance the people’s wellbeing.
The paramount ruler of Ngwo, Igwe Innocent Ayalogu, similarly lauded the Enugu First Lady for the medical outreach and her support to the governor. “The monumental development in Enugu State piloted by our dynamic and amiable governor leaves no one in doubt. We believe in the axiom that behind every successful man is the wife, the people’s governor is a grassroots,” he said.
The medical outreach also featured screenings to detect any eye ailment, cervical and breast cancer.
