Jerry Azanduna, GNA

Zebilla (U/E), Aug.
23, GNA – World Vision Ghana has donated office logistics worth GHC 14,000 to
the Births and Deaths Registry Department of the Bawku West District, Upper
East Region.

The Christian Non-Governmental
Organisation working to promote child development, presented a YAMAHA
motorbike, a desktop computer and accessories, laptop computer and a set of
office furniture to the department.

The move was part of
its private non-sponsorship grant to support and improve the registry of births
and deaths in the district.

Mr Richard Ananga, the
National Advocacy Coordinator of WV, said the donation was to enforce the
importance of child birth registration and the need for one to be captured on
the national population data.

He said through the
registration process government and other development partners would be able to
ascertain the needs of the people and prepare a long term plan for them.

He said the same set
of logistics would be given to the Garu-Tempane District office of the Births
and Deaths to help empower them and called on the beneficiaries to take good
care of the items.

Mr John Yalmon
Badengbanoya, the officer in charge of the Births and Death Registry Department
in the District, expressed gratitude to World Vision and said the items would
be used for its intended purpose.

Mr Badengbanoya said
the department was given a target of 2,000 applicants for the year, but due to
the logistical and human resource challenges, it has been able to register
about 1,780 new births so far.

He commended World
vision for building a new Regional Office for the department and is currently
working to construct a network that would link all their offices nationwide in
order to improve on speed and accuracy.
