The Radford University College (RUC) and Keeper’s House Chapel International have jointly held a health screening exercise for residents of Madina in Accra as part of their contribution towards improving health care delivery in the area.
The collaboration between the university and the church was as a result of a partnership with aim of creating the platform to introduce knowledge based initiatives to support their communities.
As part of the collaboration, RUC provided lab technicians while Keeper’s House provided volunteers for the exercise that attracted dozens of residents, particularly women and children.

He assured the church of the university’s commitment to the partnership, saying it offers them the opportunity to do more for their host communities.
Dr. David Mensah, Chairman of the church’s anniversary committee, said the exercise was part of the church’s objective of enhancing the spiritual and physical health of members and residents.
He said as part of the event, food items and clothes would be distributed to the residents, particularly the under privileged.
