Mrs Quaye said their mission was to assist Ghanaians to improve on their health, adding that they share in the vision of King Welentsi to improve the health needs of the people.

King Welentsi suggested that the team should also make their services available to LEKMA Hospital Clinic to serve the entire community.

Mrs Agnes Momo Lartey, the National Democratic Congress (NDC)  parliamentary aspirant,  said it was her hope that the relationship that had been established by the council would yield many benefits for the people of Nungua.

Mr Asamane Moses, medical officer at the LEKMA Hospital, said their doors were open for the support of the UK medical team.

He said his outfit would always help provide health care to the people and welcomed the team’s efforts at assisting the clinic.

The team includes Mike Brunner, Abi Brunner, Solange Micauef, Anthony Antonion, Soniea Shah, Dorren Elli’s and Nancy Aranas.
