It is so pathetic to notice that the workers at the Kokrobite Health Center in the Ga South Municipal in the Greater Accra Region use lamp and chargeable lamps as a lighting system when they are assisting women who are giving birth at night
The Health Workers use such a primitive lighting system because there is no power plant at the premises to power their lighting system whenever there is light out at the premises
It is against this backdrop that the health workers have appealed to the government, NGO’s, individuals and the general public to come to their aid because to them, the challenges are becoming unbearable.
The Health Center Head, Mr Jerry Nunu said “at times, midwives use chargeable lamps when they are helping women who are giving birth at night”
He explained that they rely on chargeable light because the Centre does not have a power plant or generator to light up the facility whenever there is light out.
He indicated “not only that, parents who attend antenatal need to sit under trees for health care because of lack of space to accommodate the patients”
He further hinted that there is no place to keep their clients’ folders and other crucial records about the patients
Mr Nunu made this humble appeal through obaatanparadioonline.com reporter Mireku Nyampong when the Head of Ademkpa family of Kokrobite, Daniel Nii Ade-Tagoe donated beds, wheelchairs, hand sanitisers and other hospital equipment to the health centre
Some of the Midwives also reiterated the position of Mr Nuhu as far as health infrastructure is concern
Presenting the items to the Center, Mr Daniel Nii Ade-Tegoe said it is incumbent upon him as an opinion leader in the area to attend to the core needs of the health centre
“It is part of my Corporate Social Responsibilities to help provide the necessary assistance to the various institution within my area”, he emphasized.
Nii Ade said he has been briefed with the challenges the health centre is facing and promised that those within his means would be catered for in no time
