Wantugu Clinic in the Tolon District of the Northern Region, has been inaugurated to enhance access to quality health care for the people of the area and its surrounding communities.
A two-unit semi-detached fully-furnished two bedroom house to serve as accommodation for health workers at Kasuliyili Community Clinic in the Tolon District of the Northern Region has been inaugurated.
The facility, located on the same compound of the Kasuliyili Community Clinic, is to encourage health workers posted to the community to work hard to improve health care delivery in the area.
It was funded by Madam Francesca Young, a Canadian, through the Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC) and implemented by the Baptist Child Development Programme (BCDP), both child-centred non-governmental organisations, in collaboration with the Ghana Health Service (GHS) and the Tolon District Assembly.
Daily Guide has gathered that some Fulani herdsmen have stormed the Northern Region, particularly the Tolon District.
Most farms in the district capital have been taken over by cattle, a development which could lead to clashes between the local people and the herdsmen.
Recent clashes in Asante Akim Agogo and Kwahu in the Ashanti and Eastern Regions have led to several deaths.
According to sources, the herdsmen, who have migrated from neighbouring Burkina Faso, have taken over farms in Tolon and other areas.
