The Member of Parliament for the Manhyia North Constituency, Hon. Collins Owusu Amankwa has given a brand new ambulance and other medical supplies to the Buokrom and Moshie Zongo communities.

At two separate presentation ceremonies at Sepe Buokrom and Moshie Zongo, the MP underscored the importance of having a healthy community.

According to him, human development thrives on the health of citizens. He, therefore, stressed the need to ensure that residents are well catered for at all times.

Laying out more plans for the constituency, the MP indicated his readiness to ensure health clinics and facilities receive the facelift they deserve.

He stressed the need to stock these facilities so as to enable them to attend to emergencies and deliveries.

According to him, the country cannot continue to watch unawares when pregnant mothers die while giving birth. Hon Amankwah indicated his resolve to solicit for more support to ensure medical needs of the constituents are given topmost priority.

Speaking at the elaborate presentation ceremonies, Dr Alberta Nyarko Britwum, Kumasi Metro Director of Health Services expressed her delight at the timely intervention of the Manhyia North MP.

According to her, government alone cannot resolve the challenges at the health sector and would daily depend on such donations to augment what it can provide.

The constant neglect of medical needs at the local communities in the country, the director stressed has had dire consequences on the people.

With nursing mothers and pregnant mothers dying for lack of ambulance to convey them to a better facility, Dr Nyarko intimated such assistance as done by the MP is timely.

Speaking at the presentation, Nana Owusu Bempah, chief of Buokrom thanked the MP for the gesture. He called for support from the people to ensure the MP deliver on his promise.

According to him, proper development thrives when there is unity of purpose. He pledged his support for the MP and encouraged members of the community to individually contribute their quota into building a prosperous Manhyia North Constituency.
