The Ahwia branch of the ASA Savings and Loans Limited in the Kwabre East district of the Ashanti region has organized a free medical health screening for customers and residents on Friday, August 23, 2019.
The residents and the customers were also educated on diseases like diabetes, hypertension and malaria; their causes, control and treatments.
Those diagnosed with minor health problems were provided with medicines and the complicated ones referred to the hospitals.
About 400 residents and customers, mostly women and children, were beneficiaries of the exercise.
The Ahwia Branch Manager of the ASA Savings and Loans Limited, Emmanuel Opare Yeboah, in an interview with Otec News’ reporter, Akwasi Acheampong, said the exercise was part of the organization’s corporate social responsibility.
He also said the exercise was to encourage the participants the need to regularly do medical checkup to know their state of health to avoid untimely attack of diseases and death.
Advising the beneficiaries on finances, Opare Yeboah urged them to cultivate the habit of savings for the future and have faith in the existing financial institutions that are of good standing in the books of the Bank of Ghana (BOG).
“Bank of Ghana has cleared all the financial institutions without good standing so you must save your money with us because the BOG has cleared us to transact business in the country. In times of difficulties, you can count on your savings,” he added.
