Residents of Koforidua in the New Juaben Municipality and its environs on Tuesday, June 23, 2015, were treated to a free general medical screening and treatment exercise organized by the Joy Industries DMAC Foundation Community Outreach Project in partnership with BRYT 99.1 FM.

The event which will be organized annually according to the General Manager of the station and CEO of Joy Industries Limited, Dr. Manfred Takyi, will be use to improve the lives of people living in the New Juaben Municipality where BRYT FM operates.

Dr. Manfred Takyi said the exercise is part of the company’s efforts in fostering healthy communities where individual wellbeing is promoted for prosperity.

“Health is an essential component in the development of every community.  At BRYT FM, we recognize that it makes commercial sense to invest in the well-being of the communities in which we operate because the prosperity of the community and our company are co-dependent,” he affirmed.

He assured the Koforidua community of Bryt FM continuous support and active participation in the sustainable development of the community in all ways possible.

During the health screening, Dr. Harrison Tetteh, Deputy CEO of Joy Industries Limited said, “Joy Industries and BRYTFM believe that the mark of any good corporate citizen is the willingness to contribute to the social and economic life of the very society that helps it make profit.  This is why we found it appropriate to work with BRYT FM to share our profits with you, the people of Koforidua - our landlord.”

He expressed his appreciation to the community for creating a peaceful atmosphere for them to do business in, noting, and the part they play in bringing the free healthcare to them therefore is their token expression of thanks for being a kind host.

The health screen exercise, which was held at the forecourt of the BRYT FM, is one in the series of activities to mark the launching of the station on Saturday, June 27, 2015.

The people were screened for Hepatitis B, diabetes, high blood pressure, Syphilis, Malaria, Anaemia, Typhoid fever, blood grouping, Ultrasound scan and Eye screening.

Over 1000 participants benefited from the free screening exercise.
