Her Excellency Elizabeth Salamatu Forgor, the Ghanaian High Commissioner to Namibia and a native of the Bole-Bamboi constituency on November 27, 2020, handed over medical equipment valued at USD 40,000 to the Bole District Hospital to improve upon effective health delivery in the area.
The items includes; movable x-ray machine, wheel chair, theatre bed, theatre gawns, Netal tubes, needles for surichuring, surgical face masks and disposal gloves.
Handing over the items to the DCE, Her Excellency Elizabeth Salamatu Forgor said “as a citizen you must think of where you come from and as a proud daughter of Bole and knowing the challenges our health institutions face I lobbied through colleagues to get these items to the Bole District Hospital”.
According to her the Nana Addo Dankwa led administration is an all inclusive government that is why she as a native of Bole and the good people of Savannah have been included in the NPP administration.
She said the NPP government have restored the nursing trainee allowances, the teacher trainee allowances and a host of others and hence the good people of the Bole-Bamboi constituency should reciprocate this gesture of the NPP and Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo government by renewing his mandate by voting for the NPP come December 7.
The District Chief Executive, Hon. Veronica Alele Heming receiving the items on behalf of the hospital expressed her heartfelt gratitude on behalf of the Chiefs and Queen mothers of Bole, the hospital management and the Bole-Bamboi NPP fraternity to the High Commissioner to Namibia.
Hon. Veronica Alele Heming added that Her Excellency Elizabeth Salamatu Forgor has really proved the power of womanhood by her donation and she encouraged all other natives of Bole both in Ghana and diaspora to come home and help develop the District for the benefit of all.
Mr. David Bakuri, the District Health Director thanked Her Excellency Elizabeth Salamatu Forgor saying that her donation is timely considering this season of covid-19 and assured her that the hospital shall put the items donated to the maximum use to the benefit all in the District.
He also noted that the hospital has no mortuary and hence corpse’s are usually sent to the West Gonja District Hospital and called on other philanthropists to come to their aid and also entreated the DCE to lobby for more CHPs compounds since they are the first points of contact when there are health crises most especially in the rural communities.
