The people of Zorko in the Bongo District in the Upper East Region have benefited from a medical outreach programme organised by the Royalhouse Chapel International, a church based in Accra.

A team of medical doctors, nurses and pharmacists from the church screened the people for various ail­ments and administered drugs.

Those with critical cases were referred to the Regional Hospital for further attention. Apart from the medical screening, the medical team also gave out gifts, including food items, rice, soap, cooking oil and clothing.

The leader of the team and Head Pastor of Royalhouse Chapel, Most Rev. Sam Kurankye Ankrah, told the Daily Graphic that the pro­gramme was done to extend the church’s love to the community and to propagate the gospel of Christ.

"Any compassion that is not followed with the action of love is no compassion. We in the Royal House Chapel International have been touched by the love and mercies of God who has blessed the congregation so there is no need to sit in the comfort of Accra, but move to the hinterlands and reach out to the poor and share the love of Christ with the people," Rev. Ankrah said.

He said those whose condition required further attention would-be sent to Accra where they would be referred to the teaching hospital for attention.

A member of the medical team, Dr Frank Yirenkyi, said the aim of the programme was to reach out to the people in the community who in one way or another did not have access health facility in the community.

Rev. Joseph Owusu Banahene of the World Gospel Missionary Ministry based in Bolgatanga, who facilitated the medical outreach programme, was grateful to the medical team and expressed the hope that it would be sustained.
