Free health screenings held in KwaNobuhle

2016-10-06 06:00

Rotary clubs throughout South Africa, including the Rotary Club of Uitenhage South, are once again participating in the annual Rotary Family Health Days (RFHD).

This will be held during October and is done in collaboration with various provincial Departments of Health, together with the support of several companies, including Media24.

According to Leo Doria from the Rotary Club of Uitenhage South, last year’s RFHD served well over 1 000 people in the Uitenhage and Despatch regions alone.

This regional project is led by Rotarian Dr Dayalan Naidoo.

The 2016 Rotary Family Health Day will take place at the LoveLife Centre, at the corner of Ponana Tini and Tize Street in KwaNobuhle, on 13 & 14 October.

Doors are open from 08:30 to 16:00 on both days. All are welcome and parents are encouraged to bring their children.

The free health services will include HIV testing services, TB screening, blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, the provision of contraceptives, dental care, eye screening and much more.

Rotary is aiming to reach 100 000 people in SA this year while making a sustainable difference in public private partnership.

The programme has received acknowledgement globally and throughout the African continent and impact studies show that the programme makes a substantial difference to the well-being of people and communities.
