LiveWell Initaitive LWI the self sustaining value additive not-for -profit organization was established in 2007 with the mandate of ‘halving’ (reducing by half) health illiteracy, and increasing life expectancy in Africa to age 70 by year 2030 has so far which has outreached over 1.85 million Nigerians (including over 400 disabled and underserved populations) and over 3,000 Ghanaians with health literacy through its pragmatic and proactive health empowerment programmes
The 20th of September 2015 was its 8th anniversary and it was marked with a Thanksgiving service at The Redeemed Christian Church of God Shiloh Parish Onike Yaba. LWI seized this opportunity to launch its latest project in the LWI Bay, “LWI/RCCG Shiloh Parish Health Post” by carrying out a mini-health fair for the congregation.
The participants were screened for Blood Pressure, Random Blood Glucose and Body Mass Index (BMI). There was also personalized health counselling and non-prescription medicines for adults and for children (under their parents’ supervision and consent).
The Shiloh Parish Sick Bay is a quick and affordable health post, team-led by an LWI Doctor and a Parish Health Personnel, for the members of congregation of the church and its environs.
