the circumstances of things that are happening around promoted the church to organize the medical check-up for the people.

“The leadership of this mission, Pastor Enoch Adeboye feels that it is imperative to contribute to our immediate community and that is what prompted the medical outreach.

“Both Christians and Muslims came around to participate in the medical check-up and Bible says we should love one another. In this program, there is nothing like sentiment. We attend to everyone that comes around to check their medical status.

“As a church, we believe that Christian Social Responsibility(CSR) is important and we should organize for the people to know their health status. We have the aged, young and old who came to check their medical status”, Ajayi said.

The cleric assured that the church would sustain the program going by the number of people that came out to participate in the program.
