The Member of Parliament for Nkawkaw, Joseph Akwasi Frimpong, has donated essential drugs and medical items to the Municipal Health Directorate of the Kwahu West Assembly to be distributed to various health facilities within his jurisdiction for the enhancement of quality healthcare delivery.
The items which included pre packaged clinical syringes, drugs, surgical needles, drips and infusions among others were handed over to the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for the Kwahu West Assembly, Lawyer Yaw Owusu Addo who also presented the items to the Municipal Health Director, Mrs. Celestine Asante in the company of some New Patriotic Party executives in the Nkawkaw constituency.
Speaking to journalists about the gusture, the Nkawkaw Lawmaker indicated that, the well-being of his constituents was a major concern to him as the people’s representative in Parliament, hence, his effort to engage the benevolence of Peace and Love Foundation for such items which he said would have cost him over GHC60,000.
The MP therefore used the opportunity to thank and commend the management of Peace and Love Foundation for their support and further cautioned health workers who will be in charge of the items not to sell them.
The MCE, Lawyer Yaw Owusu Addo who received the items on behalf of the assembly expressed appreciation to the MP for his profound efforts in lobbying for all good opportunities for his constituents and onwards handed over the items to the Municipal Health Director for distribution.
Mrs. Celestine Asante, the Municipal Health Director upon receiving the medical items, also eulogised the MP for the gusture and confirmed that, the items presented were very unique and expensive if an individual was suppose to procure them by his or herself.
Madam Asante further noted that, the items will be distributed evenly to all health facilities within the Municipality.
She also used the opportunity to thank the Peace and Love Foundation for their benevolence, adding that, the same relationship was accorded the Municipality during the days of Eric Kwakye Darfour, the former Member of Parliament and Regional Minister.
