More than 100 residents of Cassava Piece in St Andrew benefited from a health and domestic violence fair held in that community last Saturday. Staged by the Social Development Commission in association with the Constant Spring Police and the Cassava Piece community, the fair saw health professionals providing people with free checks for heart disease, diabetes, blood pressure, and cholesterol. Community-based organisation Children First also dispatched its 'Bashy Bus' to the fair to provide free HIV tests which were accessed by 49 women and 21 men over the approximately four hours of activities. Here, a number of residents register for the fair.
