Raphael Ike Holds 2022 Free Medical Outreach At Nkpor, Idemili North Council Area

A United States based Anambra born, Dr. Raphael Ike has held his Twenty Twenty-two free Medical Care Outreach to awaken health consciousness among individuals.


The outreach, which also featured youth empowerment through technology, was held at the Bible Based Miracle Assembly, Nkpor.


Correspondent Faith Onyemuche reports that the free Medical Care Outreach kicked off with health-related lecture by Dr. Raphael Ike where he identified High Blood Pressure, Cholesterol and Diabetes as three major silent killer diseases that people should pay attention to.

Dr. Ike said people should learn to interact with their doctors, ask relevant questions and take medications as prescribed, frowning that most people do not know the names of medications they are taking.


Dr. Ike stated that the major challenge he faces in Nigeria as a health professional is to restructure the minds of Nigerians, who believe every problem is spiritually triggered, adding that Christianity in Nigeria has evolved in a way that it affects individual decision making.


Speaking in an interview, the senior pastor, Bible Based Miracle Assembly Nkpor, Reverend Jerry Nwachukwu commended Dr. Ike for the health knowledge he shared.

Reverend Nwachukwu advised Christians that while they pray to God, the ultimate healer, they should also take responsibility.


Some of the beneficiaries, including Mr. Francis Ede and Evangelist Precious Ilom said the lecture was necessary for people to understand their health and how to care for themselves.


Checking of sugar level, blood pressure among other health challenges climaxed the event.
