In a bid to promote community health and well-being, Lagos Free Zone (LFZ), has partnered with the Rotary Club of Eko Atlantic, and the Rotary Club of Lagos-Palm Grove Estate to hold a health camp for the people of the host community of Ibeju-Lekki.
In partnership with the Clubs, the company held a comprehensive health camp, including eye screening and a blood donation drive in Ibeju Lekki between 17th and 19th October, 2023.
The health camp was supported by the Indo Eye Care Foundation and Rotary District 9110 under the Rotary Family Health Days program.
Speaking about the health of collaboration and the positives that can come out of it, Dinesh Rathi, CEO of Lagos Free Zone, said the event is a testament to the shared commitment to improving the lives of individuals in our community even as applauded the support of every organisation that collaborated with them.
Anuj Murarka, president of the Rotary Club of Lagos Palmgrove Estate, applauded the importance of the event.
“This health camp truly exemplified the spirit of service. From health checkups and blood donations to essential medicines and mosquito nets, this initiative reached out to eight different communities, making a significant impact on countless lives. Together, we’re building a healthier and happier future for all,” he said.
Sadananda Melanta, president of the Rotary Club of Eko Atlantic, thanked the Chairman of Tolaram and a Rotary member, Mohan Vaswani, for inviting them to participate in such a mega community service project.
“The response to the camp was tremendous, and the awareness program was excellent. A healthy community is a wealthy community,” he said.
The three-day event was a beehive of activities as residents of the community came out in large numbers to take advantage of the exercise. Over 750 participants, including adults and children, benefited from the health camp, with over 350 people screened for eye check-ups. The blood donation drive was a success, too, as over 130 pints of blood were collected and handed over to the Lagos State Blood Transfusion Committee.
