The Member of Parliament (MP) for Akim Oda, Mr. William Agyapong Quaittoo has donated a Nissan Pickup worth one hundred and five thousand, two hundred Ghana cedis (GHs105, 200) to the Community Health Centre at Akim Oda Old Town in the Eastern Region.
The donation was made upon an appeal by Madam Celestine Kwofie, a Midwife and the head of the health centre.
Mr. Quaittoo noted that the health centre required a clinic status considering the kind of equipment the health professionals used and the number of patients it cateres for.
He therefore called on the Ministry of Health to provide the needed infrastructure for the health centre to be converted into clinic to cover more catchment areas.
Receiving the vehicle, Madam Kwofie thanked the MP and said the gesture would go a long way to support the operations of the health centre to save the lives of the people during emergencies.
Speaking with ghanamps.com, the MP who was accompanied by the Birim Central Municipal Chief Executive, Mr Kwabena Bempong, urged the health workers to help protect and maintain the equipment for a long term use whilst calling on the people to support the development of the municipality.
