Many Nakasi/ Naulu residents and those passing through were at the Ebenezer Tabernacle Church, Nakasi, for free medical checkups last Saturday. 
The church’s president and senior pastor, Reverend Simon Narayan, said they were happy with the turn out.
“There are a lot of people coming for the check-up today (last Saturday) and we are expecting more people by the end of the day,” Reverend Narayan said.
“We are not only preaching spiritually but we are also doing awareness and to give back to the community.”
He thanked everyone who sponsored the day’s event.
“I thank the Ministry of Health, Colgate-Palmolive, the blood bank, Westpac, BSP and everyone who made today’s (last Saturday’s) event a success,” he said.
Siteri Ramatalava said she thanked God for giving the idea to the people running the check-ups.
“God is good because He knows that there are people who do not have money to travel,” said the 70-year-old.
“I am thankful for the chance to have a free medical check-up as I didn’t know I’ll be here today (last Saturday).”
Another patient, Melania Bolatini, said she was lucky to be in the area.
“I live in Lami and today I came with my mum to the cemetery and got lucky that I was checked,” she said.
“What this church is doing is very good because it encourages people to come in and get checked and elders really benefit from this.”
The church will be running medical check-ups again in June, September and December but at different locations and it hopes to rope in more sponsors.
