Kwahu Pepease (E/R), July 20, GNA - Give Hope Global in collaboration with the Ntim Family of Kwahu Pepease has commissioned a fully furnished Out Patient Department (OPD) block and renovated laboratory of the Kwahu Pepease Health Centre.

The project, with donor support from Norvant Health and Labcorp of the USA, was estimated at GH¢ 275.000.00 and consist of a consulting room, staff common room and a wash room.

At a mini durbar held to hand over the project to the community, Dr William Ofori Ntim, the Ntim Family representative, said the gesture was to help expand the facility for the benefit of the inhabitants and surrounding communities in the Kwahu East District in the Eastern Region.

He said the group were moved by the inequalities in health delivery service between the rural communities and the urban communities and the effect on child health care delivery in the rural areas.

Dr Ntim said through the NGO's intervention, free training was organized for health workers at the Atibie Government Hospital and the Pepease Health Center to upgrade their knowledge in health care.

He said the team in collaboration with the Kwahu East Health Service also offered free health screening for students in all public schools in the Pepease area and those with serious complications were referred to the Atibie Government Hospital for further treatment.

Ms Vida Efua Afful, the Kwahu East District Director of Health Services, commended the NGO and the Ntim's Family for the gesture and urged them not to relent on their effort in providing support to the health facilities.

Nana Bonsu Ayiripe Ababio, the Chief of Kwahu Pepease and Kwahu Kyidomhene, tasked the people of Pepease and the health workers at the Pepease Health Centre to take good care of the facility.

As part of the function, plaques were presented to Mr Roger Braswell, the Founder of Give Hope Global, Mr Fredrick Osafo Ntim, CEO and Chairman of FON Group, Ghana and Dr. William Ofori Ntim, the Ntim's Family representative for the support offered to the people of Kwahu Pepease.
