Ms Patience Arthur, a Midwife in Charge of the Anum Apapam CHPs centre in the Ayensuano District has called for more infrastructure support to promote healthcare delivery in the area.
According to her, the health facility has no place of convenience and therefore calling on authorities to provide them with one to help them keep safe hygiene.
Speaking at the handing over ceremony of a borehole and water project system to the facility, she commended the Ark Development Organization and the American Embassy for providing them with the support, indicating that the project will go a long way to support their activities.
She said the facility always resorted to nearby homes to get water and most of the time when pregnant women visit the facility to deliver their relatives are asked to provide water for their daily activities.
She further called on authorities and other benevolent organizations to come to their aid with other support.
On his part, the Project Manager for Ark Development Organization, Mr Emmanuel Kwafo Mintah said, some three years ago during the monitoring activities they came across the water challenge at the facility and decided to support the health centre and the community.
Stating that, the community is also faced with a lot of challenges in education and that they were going to do their best to assist the community in that regard.
Mr William White, who spoke on behalf of the US Ambassador said the American Embassy has a program known as Ambassador’s special self-help program, which assists smaller communities in the country.
He said over the last three decades $2.3million grants have been distributed to facilitate the initiative.
He noted that, since 2019, 200 applications have been submitted for assistance and out of that number seven community projects were selected and of which the Anum Apapam CHPs centre has also benefited.
