Kenyans living around Atlanta will be offered free medical check up organized by the Kenya Nurses In Diaspora Organization.(KENID)
The event will take place at 4898 Austell Rd Austell GA 30106 on Sunday November 10th from 2P.M. -6P.M.
This is a good health awareness day which comes at a time when the Kenyan Diaspora has been affected by many deaths in recent months, some that could be avoided if checked early.
We have heard of many cases where Kenyans are dying due to pressure and depression and if such causes can be diagnosed early enough maybe we can avoid the subsequent unexpected deaths.
Taking care and helping other people is a God given gift and further still a deep concerns to human values that drive some rare people with enthusiasm and compassion to make a positive and practical difference to the welfare of human race.
Caring can take many forms like caring for an elderly, sick, disabled or needy member of the family. When it comes to outside the family, that is when compassion kicks in and you find a few concerned individuals doing voluntary work in all sorts of organizations.
The Kenyan Nurses in Diaspora Organization (KENID) is such that has volunteered to offer help to their fellow Diaspora’s without charging any fee.
That in itself is the greatest love of all and all are requested to make use of the rare occasion by attending.
