ONUA PA FOUNDATION’S 4TH HEALTH SCREENING & GET-TOGETHER FOR SENIOR CITIZENS
Onua Pa Foundation held it 4th Health Screening and & Get-Together for Senior Citizens on 1st July, a Republic day and a Holiday in Ghana at Aprede Presbyterian Church. The foundation which seek to help put smile and negate the pain and anxiety faced with aging and the aged people in our society was formed two years ago.
The event welcomed more than 120 men and women aged above 60. The Medical team of 8 young and vibrant youth screened and gave relevant health advice to the attendees.
The health walk session with the questions and answers was the most educative part of the event.The doctors patiently and lovingly cleared all illusions/myths the senior citizens held concerning their health and thereby making them feel safe and happy.During this session they were taught about the importance of choosing their diet in relation to the appropriate nutrients as well as eating at the right time. The medical experts recommended strongly that they will attach moderation in all that they do as they accept the fact that they are not what they used to be some years back.
The senior citizens exhibited a great deal of humor in the Quiz/Story-story/Riddle session which followed immediately after they had entertained themselves with some songs.Each participant received food and drinks.
