About 1,500 residents of Adabraka and its environs in Accra have benefited from a free health screening exercise organized by Accra Brewery Limited (ABL) in partnership with the Graphic Communications Group Limited (GCGL).
The exercise comprised free dental screening, eye care, general medical screening and Hepatitis B and C screening and vaccination.
Persons under the age of 18, as well as those above 60 were registered for the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).
The annual event, according to the Finance Director of ABL, Graham Lurie, fulfills the company’s objective of helping to create a thriving world where incomes and quality of life are growing.
Mr. Lurie said ABL will continue to support the acceleration of growth and social development through its value chains with such health interventions.
“Health is an essential component in the development of every community. At Accra Brewery, creating a thriving world also means investing in people but most importantly it is investing in physical well-being which fosters prosperity for all,” he said.
Mr. Lurie assured the Adabraka community of ABL’s continuous support and thanked Voltic Ghana Limited for donating natural mineral water to refresh the beneficiaries.
The Hepatitis B Foundation and the Accra Diamond Lions Club also provided free services.
Over the past years, ABL has undertaken a number of initiatives aimed at supporting health care delivery in Ghana in its quest to augment government’s efforts to attain the nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
The company has been investing in an annual free HIV/AIDS screening for residents of Agbobloshie.
