Akatsi North: KNUST students donate Polytank, medical equipments to Kpeduhoe CHPS compound

A group of MSc. Development Management students from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have donated a water storage facility and some medical equipments to the Kpeduhoe CHPS compound in the Akatsi North District of the Volta region.

The group, known as the Development Pioneers made the donation, following a need assessment they did at the facility some few weeks ago.

Speaking at during the presentation, leader of the group Mr. Samuel Vincentson-Tublu said "the initiative forms part of our Social Entrepreneurship and Philanthropy programme which seeks to identify and solve societal problems."

He added further that "after our earlier assessment of the facility, we realized that the facility is in a deplorable state, lacks some basic medical apparatus and portable water which I believe would not promote good health care delivery to the people."

The items donated include a 2000 litre capacity Polytank, weighing scale, thermometer gun, BP apparatus and hand sanitizers.

Receiving the items, the nurse in charge of the facility, Mrs. Mavis Ann Parku, thanked the students for the gesture and assured them that the items would be put into good use.

She used the opportunity to appeal to government, corporate bodies and individuals to come to their aid in equipping the facility.

The group used the opportunity to sensitize the community folks on causes and effects of climate change and the importance of tree planting. To mark the event, about 10 coconut trees were planted at the facility and placed under the care of the some nurses at the CHPS compound.
