The health team of the Church of Apostles Revelation Society (Health4ARS) in collaboration with the five branches in Ho organized a health walk yesterday, 6th of October, 2018 for its members.
The health4ARS team has been in existence for two years and their core mandate is improving the health status of its members through health education, screening and health walk.
The team took this initiative to reduce the risk of non communicable diseases mainly hypertension, diabetes and obesity in the members of the Church.
Prior to the health walk, all the members were educated on the importance of exercising which is a non pharmacological treatment for diseases mentioned above and a major way to prevent those diseases.
The members converged at the sports stadium at 5am and they walked through the streets of Ho and climaxing it at the Ho municipal hospital where a massive clean up exercise took place.
The members swept around the hospital and cleared the bushes at the backyard of the hospital. After the exercise, the place looked neat, tidy and sparkling.
The members went into the wards to pray with the sick and wished them speedy recovery.
The health for ARS team was supported by Zoomlion.
The management of the hospital expressed gratitude to the organization and the Church at large for the good work done and prayed for God’s blessings for everyone.
