Volunteers for International Medical Aid (VIMA), a California-based International humanitarian organization, has donated sets of medical suppliers to the Amedzofe Clinic in the Ho West District of the Volta Region.
The donation forms part of the organization’s mission of assisting to improve the quality of healthcare services in rural Ghana.
The Amedzofe town is noted for its rich tourism potential. The area is the highest human settlement in Ghana in terms of altitude and has a temperate weather condition that attracts many tourists.
Partners of the organisation in the United States who earlier visited the town to make similar donations, returned this week upon requests from the town folks to repeat the gesture.
The items donated include Ice old pack, adhesive bandages, dressing changes, sutures, glucose meter, test strips, and toiletries.
Health workers and residents of Amedzofe have expressed their gratitude for the gesture.
The founder and CEO of VIMA, Francis Kwame Agbemafle, who grew up in the area, stated that the gesture is to give back to the society that nurtured him in his formative years.
Since the establishment of VIMA in 2009, clinics and local caregivers in rural Ghana have depended on its consistent medical supplies for their operations.
