The day was enjoyed by all.

The Wentworth Hospital Gateway Clinic Outreach team, in partnership with Inner City Ministries and Thabitha Community Care Services held a health and wellness open day at Alabama Park, recently.

“This health care day was done to bring the community closer and implement interaction between clinics and community members.  Residents were educated on the importance of routine health screening. I would like to thank our loyal and dedicated team as well as D&M Engineering for supporting and sponsoring our initiative,” she said.

Any churches or organisations requiring services or advice on substance abuse, can contact contact Sr Roskruge on 078-497-4344 or Nathan Wells on 072- 841-6072.
