The WAW is an annual programme organised by the church to encourage church members to adopt healthy living.

This year’s programme started with an aerobic session after which the church members were screened for malaria, hepatitis B, HIV, cancer among others.

The church members also donated blood to stock the National Blood Bank and had their eyes, ears, teeth’s, blood pressure, weight, kidney and cervix checked by a medical team.

In addition to the screening, physiotherapy was held for the aged in the church

Pastor Dzifa Gakpleasi, Administrator of the church, said the WAW was organised due to the church’s interest in the health and well being of its members.

“Today is the third day of our WAW celebration, and we are engaging all church members – from the head quarters and the assembly,” she said.

Pastor Gapleasi said the church presented de- wormers, vitamins and medicine to members.

Pastor Gapleasi urged church members to exercise regularly to keep healthy.

The WAW is an initiative of Rev Sam Korankye Ankra, the founder of the Royal House chapel of the church.

This year’s event was supported by the Ministry of Health with the Onuado vans.

It served as a platform for the church to educate its members on how to live healthy and happily.
