About 54 residents from the Demerara River community of Tenabu and its environs recently benefitted from the Rotary Club of Demerara’s longstanding medical outreach initiative in the area.
A press release from the club informed that on July 17 the medical outreach team offered services in chronic illnesses and dentistry.
This recent outreach saw residents from Yarauni, Richmond Demerara, Clemwood, Gold Hill, Lower Karara River, Horadiah, Susan’s Dust, Dora, Kairuni, West Watooka, South Amelia’s Ward and Block F, Wismar turning out to the Dhanpaul’s home in Yarauni to receive medical attention.
The Ministry of Health officials also made available to the residents medication, as well as tetanus vaccination which was given to the farmers and their family members.
The Rotary Club first started a medical outreach programme in Tenabu over a decade ago, recognizing there was a need to provide basic health care to the persons living in that community, the release noted.
