The Member of Parliament for the North Tornu Constituency, Hon. Okudzeto Ablakwa has on Friday, June 12, handed over a newly constructed CHPS Compound to the Chiefs and people of Nyatikpo, a beautiful village in his constituency.
According to the law maker, he visited the community some years ago and was moved by the plight of people,most especially pregnant women who for many years have had to cross the Volta River to receive medical attention at the nearby community.
“Acouple of years ago when I visited the community, I was moved by their plight, particularly pregnant women who for many years have had to cross the Volta River to receive attention at the Battor Catholic Hospital because of the lack of a health facility in that enclave. In this regard, I am glad the CHPS compound comes with permanent residential accommodation for a midwife as I fulfill my promise to the community.” He said.
In addition to the construction which cost some GHS170,000.00, he also donated a set of medical equipment valued at GHS40,000.00 to make the facility immediately operational.
