Kwabre East MP commissions CHPS compound and Two Classroom Blocks at Kasaam
Honourable Francisca Oteng Mensah urged constituents to give the NPP government four more years to do more for them.
The Kwabre East Municipal on Tuesday, November 17, 2020, commissioned a Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compound and two classroom blocks at Kasaam under the sponsorship of the Social Investment Fund (SIF) and Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund).
The former Kwabre East Member of Parliament, Honorable Kofi Frimpong who is the SIF boss contributed to the completion of the Methodist Classroom block per their mission to foster the implementation of economic, financial and social interventions to reduce rural and urban poverty that will enhance Ghana’s development agenda.
The CHPS compound designed to deliver essential community-based health services according to the Municipal Chief Executive, Honorable Osei Assibey Bonsu will focus on bringing health services close to the people of Kasaam community.
He asserted that the facility has been equipped and furnished like a clinic which will soon have nurses to take care of patients in the community. He assured that the Kwabre East Municipal is putting measures in place to get accreditation for the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) to operate for the patients’ advantage.
“The CHPS compound has been equipped like a clinic to serve the people. The SIF and GETFund projects have been beneficial to deprived communities and with this, patients don’t need to be stressed since nurses will soon start work to take care of them. What we require is to get accreditation for the Health Insurance and we’ll almost be equal as clinics,” he added.
The MCE also assured that the Assembly will soon provide seats and electricity in the Methodist School Block financed by the Social Investment Fund for learning to start.
“We are also putting up efforts to get seats for the Methodist primary for teaching and learning to start. Good environment for our students encourage better learning and as an Assembly, it is our mandate to make good use of the GetFund, SIF, the Assembly Common Fund and other interventions to promote the societies,” he added.
He added that “maintenance culture is being encouraged to be embraced by people in charge of the projects and civilians to give room for more in the future.”
The Member of Parliament of the Kwabre East Constituency, Honorable Francisca Oteng Mensah informed on the numerous works on grounds in the Municipal starting from Kasaam, whose road network is under construction.
“Kasaam roads were in a deplorable state and as I speak now, their town and linking roads are been put in a better shape by a contractor.
“There are several roads government has awarded to a contractor in the constituency and apart from that, two AstroTurf at Mamponteng and Ahwiaa are in progress to boost sports to enhance the talent of the upcoming players for future benefit.
“Government is also embarking on Senior High School projects to benefit the free SHS initiative. A 40-bed male and female ward at Aboaso health sector have been constructed and 10 mechanized boreholes are also nearing completion with many ahead. My plea is for them to give us four more to continue,” she added.
