B5 Plus organises free medical screening In Tema

Tema-based steel company, B5 Plus Limited, has organised the May edition of several medical camps and health screening for its workers and residents of Tema where the firm operates.

The exercise was held at the forecourt of the B5 Plus steel factory and was patronised by over 300 people who enjoyed free general medical examination and treatment by seasoned health experts.

There were four medical doctors from the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital and four other health professionals who screened beneficiaries for high blood pressure, diabetes, hearing problems, HIV/AIDS and general well-being.

Participants were provided with free basic medication and treatment for various ailments after counselling and consultations on-site with few serious cases having referrals to hospitals.

About 15 students of the Head of States Awards (HOSA) group from the Delhi Public School International (DPSI) in Tema were volunteers who assisted the medical team during the event.

B5 Plus Limited is a recipient of the TNG Steel Fabrication Company Award and also the International Europe Award for Quality and Excellent Service.

The Director of B5 Plus Limited, Mukesh Thakwani, said the company has organised series of medical camps across the country since 2006 as part of its corporate social responsibility.

“It is an open camp for the masses from anywhere in the community. This is to help people to come out of their general basic health problems. We are committed to helping the needy and uplift the society where we find ourselves to the benefit of the people who live around us,” he said.

Some of the beneficiaries who spoke to the media showed appreciation to the management of B5 Plus for the good intentions towards the workers and the general public.
