Physician Assistant at the Peace Specialty Hospital, Doctor Nimonorka Laar Caleb, has strongly urged Ghanaians on the need to always visit a hospital for check-ups before they are at the verge of dying.
According to him, it’s very worrying how some people wait till situations get escalated before going to see a doctor. He said waiting to be at the verge of death before going for a check-up is usually is the cause of many deaths in the country.
“When we advise people to regularly visit their doctors, we don’t mean to extort monies but it’s always for their safety first. People should therefore discard the monetary mentality and think health first”. The doctor said.
Doctor Laar said this during a free screening exercise organised for widows, others at Kumasi Yennyawso, under the auspices of the Kumasi Mayor, Hon. Osei Assibey Antwi.
Mad. Philomena Antwiwaa, National President of the Akunafuo Mmoa Foundation commended the mayor for touching the hearts of widows and other vulnerable.
She however took the opportunity to advise widows who carelessly leave their wards to go astray in life be very careful.
“Even though it’s being difficult taking care of your ward as a single parent, but I entreat my fellow widows to always watch the ways of their wards especially when it comes to morality”. She said
Beneficiary attendees commended the Kumasi Mayor for organising and cost of such a screening that would have cost them a lot.
