The Member of Parliament (MP) for Subin, Isaac Osei, has given health delivery a boost with the donation of a medical equipment valued at GH¢35,200.00 to the Kumasi Children’s Hospital.

The chemical and haematology analyzers were bought with his share of the MPs’ National Health Insurance Fund.

The donation was in response to an appeal by the hospital to enhance health care delivery in the health facility which serves a lot of patients in the municipality.

Mr Osei at the presentation ceremony commended the medical personnel, especially the doctors, who in spite of the strike by the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) had the health of the people and were at their duty post treating patients.

He assured of his continued support to help the hospital achieve its goal of becoming a “centre of excellence”.

Dr (Mrs) Annie Opoku, the Medical Superintendent, who expressed gratitude to the MP for his kind gesture stated that the equipment would to a large extent improve clinical care and bring relief to patients.

Mr Osei further continued his donation exercise when he provided large quantities of electrical materials including bulbs, switches and photo cell and breakers, valued at GH¢17,100.00.

The beneficiary communities included; Asafo, Asem, Fanti-Newtown, Dadiesoaba, Dominase, Anloga-Fanti-Newtown and Amakom.

He also interacted with teachers and students of the Armed Forces cluster of schools to learn at first hand their challenges, and also encouraged the students to take their studies seriously to become successful people in the future.
