He said the screening exercise sought to provide safe and proper healthcare services to the elderly and other vulnerable groups in these remote communities. This is what drives our keen interest in the general well-being of our community.”

 

 

 

According to the MP, the economic demand of the indigents as farmers is a challenge that does not allow them to access health care facilities for regular checkups; hence, there is a need for him to bring the initiative closer to the doorstep of the people.

“I am also ready to take medical outreach to other communities in the Constituency to help the people know their health status and get treatment for their health conditions”, he assured.

That, he said, would enable them to remain healthy while contributing to the socio-economic development of the country.
