The reagent of Wulensi traditional area, Osman Salifu Wumbei in collaboration with the citizens of the town, through a self-help initiative is putting up a maternity ward at the Wulensi health center. This initiative is aimed at solving the infrastructure deficit facing the Health Center. The self-help project which is dear to the heart of the reagent is help the health center regain it’s lost status of a district hospital. The Wulensi health center was downgraded by the Ghana Health Service owing to the lack of sufficient infrastructure. The facility since 2004 when the Nanumba North district was curve out of the then Nanumba district has not seen any facelift thereby promoting the downgrading.
In an effort to regain it lost status, residents of Wulensi and surrounding communities were tasked to pay a levy towards the construction of the maternity ward. The construction of the facility is at lentil level but inadequate funding is delaying the progress of work.
Mr. Amin Asimiwu, the public relations officer of the Wulensi reagent and lead fund raiser for the building have appealed to individuals and benevolent organizations and sons and daughters of Nanumba North district to urgently support the self-help initiative to put up the maternity ward and other facilities. "We started the building through an initiative by the reagent of Wulensi because we as citizens have come to realize that we can't solely depend on the government to help us get enough facilities for the health center. Political parties have been promising and failing us, so as natives of the community, we task our selves to raise funds for the project. It has not been easy but we managing to complete. We are appealing to non governmental organizations who are into health promotion to come to our aid
According to Mr. Iddi Amin Asimiwu, it is the dream of every citizen in the Wulensi traditional area for the health center to get the needed facilities for the smooth delivery of quality health care to the people. He said the absence of the facilities is impeding the delivery of quality health care to the people of the district.
He noted that, the youth of Wulensi are willing to offer free accommodation to health workers who will accept posting to work in the town.
