… As 600 Adults, 500 Children Receive Quality Health Care
Chief Ebenezer Obey, along with other organisations, namely Relume Foundation and Household of God church, displayed their hospitality to the people of Idogo community. The two-day event, saw populace within and outside communities, thronged out in their large numbers to partake in the free healthcare scheme at the popular Idogo Community town hall, 572 adults and 523 children partook of the health care programs as medications and food supplies were distributed to participants. Over 150 students and 300 children received anti-worm medication, multivitamins and folic acid. Four persons were beneficiaries of hernia surgery and 15 people received cataract surgery courtesy Eye Foundation Clinic.
The programme, according to Obey, which was part of the activities lined up to celebrate the seventh year remembrance of his late wife, Pastor (Mrs) Juliana Olaide Obey-Fabiyi, did not only address peoples’ various health problems, but the organisers also featured counseling and prayers session. Obey said: “the healthcare and spiritual care are both what man needs here on earth. People would go astray if the spiritual aspect of life is not taken care of or misbehave, and anytime man is doing what he is not supposed to do, he cannot be a happy person. When we relate to God knowing that He created us in His own image; He must direct our affairs. If we receive direction from God, we cannot go wrong. So, the spiritual aspect is very important and we thank God that we are able to balance that through the initiative.”
The turnout has made it clear that the care that people need matters a lot. I thank God and also appreciate the Relume Foundation from the United States anchored by both Dr and Professor Adeosun, in conjunction with the Ebenezer Obey Evangelistic Ministry and the Household of God Church of Reverend Christe Okotie, in making this a reality.
