Members of the SDA cleaning a filthy spot in the CBD
28 April 2017, MASVINGO – The Seventh Day Adventist Church (SDA) will host a health expo in Masvingo on March 19 - 26 at the Civic Centre where people will receive free medical help.
The event will see people receive free medical check-ups and medical testing for various ailments while dental and optical services will also be provided.
Medical consultations and minor operation services will be provided while complex conditions will be referred to hospitals for attention.
Speaking at the pre-health expo meeting held last week at the Civic Centre, SDA National health director, Dr Douglas Mutanga invited people to be part of the expo.
"We are inviting people from all walks of life to come and receive free medical help. People from all walks of life are invited regardless of circumstances.
"People must come for check-ups on time so that they get to know the state of their health early because your health is your wealth," Dr Matanga said.
The pre-health expo saw church members of the church marching from their respective areas to the Civic Centre followed by a clean-up campaign in the CBD as part of efforts to encourage people to keep healthy surroundings.
The health expo will also offer free medication and give educational tips on health and good living habits.
Men and women's clinics will also be available to offer medical advice for different health problems that are found in men and women.
The organising committee is also planning to work with Zimbabwe Medical Association (Zima) for the Expo.
In 2015, the SDA hosted similar health expos in Chitungwiza where thousands received free medical help. Another successful medical expo was also held in Gwanda last year.religion
