Kids in Langbansa community receive free health care
ABOUT 500 children in Langbansa Community Ajah, a Lagos suburb, benefitted from the deworming exercise carried out by a non-governmental organisation (NGO), Beyond Usual Care Foundation, as a part of its empowering programme aimed at families through adequate health care.
The one–day exercise tagged: “De-worming for Kids,” from ages five-13, was held recently at Langbasa Town Hall location in Ajah.
The project, which was organized by the NGO in conjunction with the Heritage Assembly Church and the Look Media, witnessed a large number of kids and parents, who came to be de-wormed and were also given drugs.
Pastor Felix Odogbo of the Heritage Assembly Church, who was a special guest of honour at the event, said the programme was to support the society through religious charity and also to assist the Government since it (the government) cannot provide everything alone.
Ms. Majiri Oniko, founder of the NGO, said that the foundation, which started last year, has gone from one poor community to the other to impart positively on the lives of the less privileged in the society.
