The Member of Parliament (MP) for Asante Akyem North, Kwadwo Baah Agyemang, has donated a brand new ambulance to the Juansa Health Centre.
He made the presentation last Friday in fulfilment of a promise he made to the health centre sometime ago.
Mr Baah Agyemang, during the presentation, disclosed how he was touched by the plight of a sick person who was once being conveyed to the facility in the booth of a taxi sometime ago.
He, therefore, decided to use part of the proceeds from his share of the Health Insurance Fund in acquiring the ambulance for the centre, which, he believes, would go a long a way in benefitting the community.
“Even though I will not be representing this constituency after the next general elections, I can assure you that when Nana Addo comes into power, Asante Akyem will witness more of such projects,” he assured the chiefs and people of the area.
The MP promised to complete an ongoing clinic project at Wioso by the end of the year.
On his part, the chief of Juansa, Nana Agyemang Teatoa, expressed his immense gratitude to the MP for the gesture.
Though there is a hospital at Agogo where the MP comes from, he expressed his happiness in bringing the ambulance to the Juansa Health Centre.
The transport officer for the health centre equally commended the MP, and promised to make sure that the ambulance is kept in good shape and used for its intended purpose.
District Health Director, Rebecca Teni Dukurugu, and other opinion leaders in the area received the ambulance on behalf of the chiefs and people of the area.
