The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Red Cross Society, with support from the SVG Medical Association, hosted a community health fair on Saturday.
The Chateaubelair chapter of the SVG Red Cross spearheaded the activity, held near the Chateaubelair Community Centre.
The health fair was held to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of developing health challenges.
Patrons to the health fair were offered services in vision testing, blood pressure and sugar checks, foot care as well as the opportunity to be engaged in a series of exercises.
Patrons were also given a ready to go kit containing toiletries that they can use if an emergency arises.
“The SVG Red Cross Society will like to take the opportunity to thank all patrons for support in making the health fair a success. Remember, together, we are our first aid,” the society said.
