CCP Holds a Free Medical Camp
On July 22, CCP held a free medical camp at CCP’s Community Center in Gatina Village sponsored by Simply 2 Love which attracted 528 people. Services offered included, Observation, Doctor Consultation, Dental Care, Voluntary Counselling and Testing (VCT), Cancer Screening, Ear Nose and Throat (ENT), Prayer and Pharmacy. The medical camp started off with a devotion shared by Peggy Hale (of Simply 2 Love) from James 5:14-16 and Philippians 4:4-10. She encouraged the people to confess their sins, make their request known to God instead of being anxious and she also urged them to allow the Lord to come into their lives to forgive their sins and heal their land. After the devotion Mable Umali the CCP’s Medical Coordinator made her welcome speech inviting all the patients to receive services from highly qualified medical practitioners present to serve them. The camp was organized such that after registration, patients visited the observation room where the nurses gave deworming and took details of patient’s blood pressure, weight, age, and pulse. For children patients the nurses also checked the heights, did a mal-nutritional assessment, and gave vitamin A. The next stop was the consultation room or the dental room depending with the sickness where each patient had a session with the doctor or dentist respectively. Next was the prayer room where CCP staff prayed and counselled with the patients after which they proceeded to the pharmacy for the prescribed drugs. Cancer screening, and VCT were optional services attended by those who wished. Apart from those who received general services, 47 patients saw the dentist, 19 women had cancer screening, 47 checked their HIV status, and 5 received ENT services. We also had 38 people receive Christ as Lord and savior.
