Adaklu gets new health centre

A health centre built through the support of Canadian Friends of Adaklu Waya, in the Adaklu District of the Volta Region with partial funding from North American Women Association in Ghana has been donated to the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, Ghana, to manage.

The 60,000 Canadian dollar facility was built by ADANU, a non governmental organisation as project partners.

For many years the area had been without a health facility and people have to travel long distances to attend healthcare services.

The facility would therefore serve the health needs of Adaklu Waya and its surrounding communities.

Speaking at the dedication ceremony to commission the project, Rev. Dr Seth Senyo Agidi, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the EP Church, Ghana, lauded the collaboration of the two agencies in addressing the healthcare needs of the people.

He assured the donors of the efficient use of the facility for it to achieve its intended purpose and yield positive results.

He was optimistic that many more people in the communities would patronise the centre to allow for the expansion of the centre.

Mr. Richard Atiemo Ganyo, Health Manager of EP Church, Ghana, called on the people to support the health staff that had been posted by helping to keep the centre clean.

He said the church would do its best to equip the centre with drugs so that there would be no need traveling to Ho to receive health care.

Mr. Robert Tornu, Director, Community Coordinator, ADANU, commended the community for their support in completing the project on time.

Ms. Helga-Liz Haberfellner, Executive Director of Canadian Friends of Adaklu Waya, in her remarks said the centre was a proof that ‘international cooperation brought positive results and served as a testament to perseverance, ingenuity and the humanity that binds us’.
