TERKKU Hanke-Health promotion event
December 10, 2021 @ 8:00 am - June 20, 2022 @ 4:00 pm
Terkku hanke is Moniheli project, funded by STEA, which aims to develop culturally sensitive outreach models to prevent non-communicable diseases among immigrants from Africa and Middle Eastern countries. As part of the TERKKU Hanke, HEED Finland planned and implemented a chronic disease awareness event for immigrants. Close to 200 participants attended the event during which, they were provided free health checks (hemoglobin, blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol, BMI and body composition test) and guidance on important health promotion topics including diet and exercises, vitamine D. Participants also enjoy free healthy snacks during the event. Excellent feedback from all participants who expressed the need for more of such events in the future.
