Project Caucus Provides Free Medical Screening
Project Caucus, a Non-Governmental Organization as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR), has provided free medical care to the aged in the entire Ashaiman circuit of the Methodist Church.
Speaking at the event held at the Ashaiman Methodist Church, last Friday, Vice President of the NGO, Madam Naomi Chai said taking care of the elderly people in the society is a dream come true for the NGO.
“Our parents especially the aged have contributed so much to the grooming and success of the young ones in our society therefore taking care of their needs and ensuring they are healthy is a way of saying thank you to them,” she said.
According to her, Project Caucus has therefore dedicated September 21, of every year, to provide such free medical care to the elderly in the society.
The event also saw to it that the aged were properly fed with sumptuous meals and also fellowshipped with.
Meanwhile Project Caucus has bemoaned the negativity that the Ashaiman community has been dented with over the years.
Social vices, such as stealing, disloyalty and armed robbery have all been associated with the community and Madam Chai says these stigmas are demoralising and highly unacceptable.
“Project Caucus was founded seven years ago by a young group of people who were born and raised in Ashaiman and they have been taking care of the aged long before the NGO was formed,” she said.
She therefore pleaded with the public to stop associating Ashaiman with social vices.
Madam Chai further solicited funds and support for the NGO to enable them stretch their tentacles and keep organizing such programmes for the elderly in our society.
