A non-profit organization, Divine Group International has rendered free health screening exercise to a cross-section of people in Tumu today, April 22, 2019, as part of their motives to assist people in assessing health needs and dealing with issues of poverty especially among the poor.
During an interview with a leading volunteer of the group, Mr Ebenezer Kofi Adu Lartey said they have their headquarters based in Accra. He also said they are been motivated to give back to the society, and has referenced that motivation to taking a cue from Jesus Christ when he sacrificed himself for the people.
According to him, they depend solely on individuals and organizations’ donations for their operations. In relation to this, he said Tumu Baptist Church has been one of their partners through which they were able to, over 7 years, come to Tumu to render the basic health needs to the marginalised, especially the Fulanis in the area.
Mr Ebenezer has however appealed to other benevolent organisations and individuals to help finance their operations.
One of the leading local cooperators of Divine Group International, Mr Gobik also in an interview said they embark on this exercise to at least provide a tool to alleviate the financial burdens of the poor in seeking basic health needs.
Mr Godfrey Baveru Kanton also said they have been cooperating with the group every year, and also assist them in terms of shelter and food.
