Former MP gives to children at Agogo Hospital

The former Member of Parliament for Asante-Akim North Constituency, Hon Kwadwo Baah Agyemang as a sign of appreciation to God on his birthday which fell on the 24th of January and in addressing the perennial challenge of malnutrition, extended his hand of benevolence to children at the Agogo Presbyterian Hospital.

Visiting the children during the late hours of Tuesday afternoon, Hon Agyemang flooded the children ward with assorted foods and fruit drinks.

Having adopted the ward as his personal project since 2013 when he became the MP for the area, nurses and staff of the hospitable welcomed the former MP with smiles.

Ironically, Hon Agyemang lost his first daughter at this hospital around 2013 and the visit exuded mixed emotions from the MP.

Receiving the packaged foods and drinks on behalf of the children and the hospital, Reverend Mavis Yeboah , chaplain of the facility on behalf of the Nurse in Charge, Gloria Nyandeh expressed profuse delight at the gesture.

She thanked the former MP and appealed to other individuals as well as corporate organizations to emulate the shining example of Hon Baah Agyemang so as to relieve the hospital of the huge financial responsibilities they bear in the upkeep of the kids.

According to her, most children at the ward face the challenge of malnutrition and added the proximity of the town to the Afram plains area makes them to receive high number of visits.

This, she noted is increasingly making it difficult for the hospital to adequately and effectively cater for the kids with the meager resources it generates as revenue.

She, however, asked the public to help them to get some bed-sheets at the ward for the over 60 kids the facility takes up at a time.

It will be recalled that last year during a similar visit to the facility  Hon Baah Agyemang donated 70 bed-sheets to the hospital.

Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper after the visit, Hon Baah Agyemang reiterated his commitment to helping residents of Asante-Akim North to have the best of health.

He promised to use his influence outside parliament to lobby for better working conditions for health workers as well as residents of the community.

Hon. Baah Agyemang disclosed his intent to keep helping the Children’s ward every year as he has done for the past four years.

He, however, urged other natives of the community and others who have traveled to also support the hospital so as to enable it provide the best of healthcare to the residents.
