Accra, Oct. 8, GNA – Miss Brenda Lutterodt,
Project Co-ordinator of Cradle to Crayon Ghana, a Non-Governmental Organization
(NGO), has called on Ghanaians to go for medical check-up frequently to know
their health status.

She said diseases detected very early cost
less in treatment than diseases which were not detected early and may even
cause death.

Miss Lutterodt made the call when the NGO
organized free deworming exercise for children at Alajo and its environs in
Accra on Saturday.

She said the exercise formed part of the NGO’s
‘’Worm free Project’’ which was aimed at offering free deworming for children
under 12 years in the deprived communities and also create awareness of worm
infestation.

Miss Lutterodt said so far the NGO had offered
free deworming to about more than 6,000 children since inception of the
project.

She said Cradle to Crayon Ghana had extended
the exercise to Bukom, Madina and Korle Gonno and that the more deprived
communities in the Greater Accra Region would be treated.

The Project Co-ordinator advised Ghanaians to
keep their surroundings clean in order not to contract diseases.

School bags, mosquito nets, clothes, shoes as
well as food supplements were distributed to the children.
