Mr Henneric David Yeboah, Member of Parliament (MP) for Afigya-Sekyere East, has donated four ambulances fitted with accessories and mobile phones to four health facilities in the constituency.
The ambulances, worth GH₵107,000, are to promote emergency health care delivery and improve upon the quality of health care in the constituency.
The beneficiary health institutions are the Kona Health Centre, Salvation Army Hospital, Boanim and Domeabra Maternity clinics.
Two years ago, the MP donated three ambulances to the Agona Government Hospital and two other health facilities in the constituency.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony at Agona, Mr Yeboah said the ambulances were purchased from his share of MPs car loan facility and other personal sources.
He said the ambulances had been recommended by health professionals in the district as urgent and critical to health care services in the area.
Mr Yeboah stressed the need for judicious use of financial resources allocated to MPs for the benefit of the people since monies like the Common Fund, Getfund and National Health Insurance Fund, belonged to the people.
He commended the management of health facilities which benefited from the previous donation for taking good care of the ambulances and for using them to benefit the people.
He cautioned the health facilities against using the ambulances to carry corpses and said that would defeat the purpose for which they were procured.
Mrs Rita Aryordah, District Director of Health Services, commended the MP for his continuous support for quality health care delivery in the area.
She said seven out of the 10 health facilities in the district could now boast of modern and efficient ambulances.
The MP also presented a cheque for GH₵5,000 each to some selected schools in the area to expand and improve their infrastructure.
The beneficiary schools are the Agona D/A Primary, Montosua D/A Primary, Domeabra Junior High and Abrakaso Junior High schools.
The Agona Secondary/Technical and Konadu Yiadom Senior High School at Asamang also received GH₵10,000 each. GNA
