Mrs Freda Prempeh, the Member of Parliament for Tano North, has presented GH¢20,000.00 to support the smooth take-off of the newly established Presbyterian Midwifery Training School at Duayaw-Nkwanta in Brong-Ahafo Region.

According to the MP, maternal mortality and child morbidity remained a national health challenge but the problems associated with maternal health could be addressed if competent midwives were produced to handle deliveries.

She commended the Presbyterian Church in the area for its support and contribution to the development of the district.

Mrs Prempeh advised students in the district to take advantage of the training school and learn hard so that they would gain admission without difficulties.

The Reverend Daniel Asomah Gyabaa, the District Minister of the Duayaw-Nkwanta Presbytery, thanked the MP for the gesture.

He explained that work on the school’s administration block, lecture halls, dormitories were progressing steadily and would be completed soon.

Rev Gyabaa said the first enrollment would take-off in September 2016, and appealed to especially Duayaw-Nkwanta residents both at home and abroad to support the school.
