Mandari District Organises Free Health Screening, Enrols 415 Onto NHIS

In line with the “Possessing the Nations” agenda of The Church of Pentecost, the Mandari District in the Sawla Area of the Church has enrolled 415 residents onto the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

The initiative, which also saw 98 residents receiving free medical screening and care, was undertaken in collaboration with the Bole Municipal Directorate of the NHIS and the Mandari Health Centre.

According to the District Minister, Overseer Jones Amankwah Dwomoh, who funded the programme with his wife, Felicia, the exercise was the Church’s way of demonstrating the love of Christ by easing the plight of the poor and marginalised in society. Among the beneficiaries were 30 widows within the community.

Other beneficiary communities include Chache, Jentige, Mahmoudkura, Twumbuyiri, and Bale. Others were Jankula, Horiyiri, and Tinyakura

Delivering a speech at the Mandari Central Assembly church auditorium, where the event was held, the Chief of Mandari, Safali Naa Kafinti II, expressed profound appreciation to The Church of Pentecost for the kind gesture.

“This was the first time the community is benefiting from such a gesture from a church organisation,” he said.

He, therefore, commended the district minister for his dexterity in ensuring that the vision became a reality. He was particularly impressed that they extended the gesture to non-members of the Church, including Muslims.

The Assembly Member for Mandari, Mr. Dauda, who accompanied the Chief to the event, was overwhelmed by the gesture and thanked the Church for such a great initiative.

Overseer Dwomoh also thanked a benevolent friend for contributing financially to the programme, as well as the Bole Municipal Director of NHIS, staff of Mandari Health Centre and all who supported in diverse ways to ensure the success of the programme.
