Solomon Empire & the B.P.E Team, on Saturday June 9th, organised free medical outreach for residents of Iyano Ipaja community in Lagos Nigeria.
Mr David Korede (Founder of the Solomon’s Empire) in an interview, said that the aim was to provide free medical services for the less privileged in the area.
“We started this free medical service couple years ago to assist the poor; I am doing it to help those who cannot pay for their medical bill.
“I know what it takes to pay for medical treatment in some families, and I know what the people in the rural communities are facing, especially at this hard time.
“Many people have died because they could not have afford to pay for their treatment; that is why we took it upon ourselves to assist the rural communities,” he said.
David Korede said the organisation would visit as many communities as they could in Lagos.
“All fingers are not equal but I am calling on well-meaning Nigerians to come out and assist those who are helpless.”
Solomon’s Empire & the B.P.E Team promised to continue with the goodwill gesture and urged other relevant stakeholders in the society to do the same within their domains.
One of the beneficiaries, Mrs Kemi Sulaimon, who could not hide her joy, expressed gratitude to the organisation for the kind gesture.
“I am happy for this malaria treatment and dental check-up because I don’t have money to go to hospital,” she said.
The medical outreach featured dental, eye screening and malaria tests from qualified doctors.
