FREE MEDICARE

Liwocare studies the society and responds in what little ways it can. Remember the biblical story we referred to earlier in Luke 6.9,Jesus had been teaching the people when He read hunger and weakness on their faces. Very quickly, He fed them satisfactorily.
Similarly, Liwocare in response to the dearth of medical care among the low-income earners put together a “Mega Free Medicare” on May 26,2007.The outreach spanned three different locations in Aba namely: 40 Port-Harcourt Road, Abundant Living Region by St Ambrose Catholic Church, Umuoba Road, Ogbor-Hill and APF, 153 Aba-Owerri Road.Abayi .Aba.
An estimated number of one thousand five hundred persons were seen by the medical personnel and drugs running into Two hundred and seventy thousand naira (N270, 000) was expended. The beauty of the entire exercise was that the free medicare was extended to all and sundry with no discrimination whatsoever, food and refreshment was made available to all participants.
IN the course of the treatment doled out it was observed that an average adult (at least in Aba and its environs ) is hypertensive and 95% of them ignorantly move with severe high blood pressure as high as 200/120 without even knowing it. That is why we take seriously our mandate of encouraging people to know their status. We also offer them free medical advice so that we can eventually “ Strike the stroke ‘‘.
