Asamankese (E/R), April 15, GNA - The Asamankese Youth for Development (AYD), a social club committed to the development of the West Akim Municipality , has handed over a GH¢45,000.00 rehabilitated Asamankese Clinic to the West Akim Municipal Health Directorate.
The Clinic, is currently being used as a Health Centre by the Health Directorate.
The AYD also donated large quantities of toiletries and two sets of power generators to support the maternal health department and other essential departments of the health centres to work when they experience power outages.
Speaking at the ceremony, the West Akim Municipal Director of Health Services, Dr Samuel Agyemang Boateng called on the management of health facilities in the municipality to open up and engage the communities where they were working.
He explained that by such practice, it would give the members of the community the opportunity to know the challenges facing the facility and help resolve them.
Dr Boateng said his vision was to find some collaborators to provide more wards to the facility to transform it into a polyclinic to support the Asamankese Government Hospital.
He thanked the AYD for their support and expressed the hope that the two institutions would continue to collaborate to offer better services to the people of Asamankese.
The Vice-Chairman of AYD, Mr Emmanuel Okine explained that the rehabilitation of the old Asamankese clinic and the handing over ceremony was the first project of AYD, which was established some four months ago.
He called on all citizens of Asamankese to join hands with AYD to contribute towards the development of West Akim Municipality.
Mr Sintim Aboagye, former West Akim Municipal Chief Executive promised to support the group to undertake their future projects.
