Agroyesum (Ash), Aug
02, GNA – Medical supplies and equipment costing US$1.3 million have been made
available for distribution to eight health facilities in the Amansie West
District to help improve the quality of healthcare to people in the area.

This was a joint
donation by American NGO, Project C.U.R.E and Asanko Gold Mines, a mining
company at Manso-Nkran.

Saint Martin’s Catholic
Hospital, Manso-Nkwanta, Adubia, Manso-Nkran, and Abore Health Centres, Keniago
Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compound, Essuowin Health
Centre and the Mother of God Clinic at Esaase, benefitted.

Mr. Charles Amoah,
General Manager (Operations), Asanko Mines, at the presentation ceremony, said
the gift would significantly enhance the operations of the facilities.

His company
contributed US$200,000.00 to cover the shipment and import duties on the
medical supplies and equipment.

He said being a good
corporate citizen, it had made the development and welfare of the people, its
major priority.

He added that it would
continue to be involved in interventions that would have positive impact on
their lives and cited the support for education and vocational training and the
provision of access to finance.

Mr. William Asante
Bediako, the District Chief Executive (DCE), applauded the Mine for serving as
a reliable development partner.

He described the
donation as a “welcome relief” to the people and asked the beneficiary
facilities to take good care of the equipment and supplies.

These, he said, should
be used to bring healing and comfort to the sick.

Mr. Dominic Dorbi, the
District Health Director, thanked Project C.U.R.E and Asanko Mines for what he
termed “the wonderful gesture”.
