ASA Savings and Loans Limited, on Thursday June 16, 2022, held a free medical screening exercise at the Lapaz Business Center near the ‘Abrante3’ overpass for customers and community members.
The free medical screening exercise costing nearly GHS 5,000 was performed by Modern Care Clinic and more than 100 people benefited.
Doctors at the clinic tested the recipients for blood pressure, hepatitis B, and also checked their sugar levels.
In addition to breast cancer screening, beneficiaries were counseled on malaria prevention and made aware of the need to prioritize their health by Dr. Abdul Rahman, director of the modern care clinic.
Speaking to the press, Ms. Cynthia Emefa Appiah, Branch Manager of ASA Savings and Loans Lapaz Business Center, said the exercise was part of the corporate social responsibility (CSR) of the company.
She said, “Today we are organizing a medical examination for all our members and even for people nearby.
Mrs. Cynthia Emefa Appiah added: “We paid for everything. Medicines are given to them after all. You get checked, you go to the lab and then you get the medicine. Everything is free.
For her part, Madame Zalia Alhassan, Sector Director of the Lapaz Business Center, said that the exercise is a continuation of several activities carried out by ASA Savings and Loans Ltd to give back to society.
She pointed out that more activities through CSR activities will be rolled out in the future.
“It’s a continuation of what we’ve been doing as part of our corporate social responsibility. We believe in giving back to the community and to the people we work with as clients. It won’t be the last. From time to time, we will also have similar or different exercises,” noted Madame Zalia Alhassan.
Engaging some of the beneficiaries of the free health screening exercise on the sidelines, they praised ASA Savings and Loans.
An excited Priscilla Asare shared, “They checked my blood pressure and stuff. They gave me a free test. Everything they did for me was free. I am a customer and very grateful to ASA Savings and Loans. They have been very successful and we pray that they continue to grow. Hopefully we will have more in the future.
Since the beginning of the year, ASA Savings and Loans Limited has committed huge sums of money to corporate social responsibility activities.
Financial institutions not only offered support to victims of the Appiatse disaster, but also donated to children’s homes and paid school fees for bright but needy school children.
Through the business, many businesses, especially those owned by women, have been able to sustain and grow.
The company says it is committed to developing more businesses to impact life in the country.
