There was jubilation at Ozubulu, Ekwusigo local government area of Anambra state as over 5,000 persons, including women, children and the elderly, benefited from a free medical outreach sponsored by the member representing Nnewi North, Nnewi South and Ekwusigo federal constituency, Hon Uche Eleodumuo.
Speaking during the event, the donor said the free medical mission was part of activities lined up to mark his 100 days in the House of Representatives, as well as to enable people of his constituency to benefit from his campaign promises.
He enumerated categories of health issues handled at the health outreach to include minor surgeries, eye clinic, and diagnosis, adding that medical professionals were drawn from different health institutions to attend to patients.
The leader of the medical team, Dr. Okoyedike Olisa, said that the outreach would last for nine days, and would cover communities in Nnewi North, Nnewi South, and Ekwusigo local government areas.
Some patients, who benefited from the free medical outreach, lauded the initiative of the lawmaker in helping members of his constituency to handle their health issues at no cost.
