The number of people diagnosed with hypertension struck hundred within two hours at a recent medical consultation held at Simpson, Lagos Island, Lagos.
The medical team revealed this to TheCable Lifestyle during Project Spread, an annual event organised by The House on the Rock church to make the yuletide period an interesting one for people in selected communities.
The Project Spread platform was used to reach out to people through gifts, free health supplements, medical check-ups & supplies, food and more.
Michael Adelusi, a pastor from House on the Rock, said the local government areas chosen for this year’s Project Spread were Elegunshi, Ajegunle, Lagos Island and Sangotedo.
He said the program was a platform the church had drawn out to reach out to people to have a wonderful Christmas.
“We go into the communities, give the cards, we organise them so that we don’t have any casualty in our hands. We do this every year to actually communicate in palpable terms, the gifts that God has given to mankind in Christ Jesus,” said Adelusi.
Paul Adefarasin, senior pastor, House on the Rock church, said “our community can be better when the church plays its part. With Project Spread, the church is delivering on its commitment to putting smiles on thousands of faces this Christmas and in turn, making our community a better place, one family at a time”.
“It is the mandate of the church to go into the world and preach the gospel. The greatest of this gospel is that of love. It is a core responsibility of the Christian to show love to all irrespective of religious and cultural backgrounds.”
