The Sandema District Hospital has received a donation of hospital equipment and other valuables estimated at GH¢100,000. The items include laboratory equipment, patient lift, sets of computers, beds and mattresses, tricycles and dual desks, among others.

This kind gesture was actualized by the collective efforts of the two Members of Parliament from the area, Abolimbisa Roger Akantagriwen, Builsa South, and Asangalisa Agnes Chigabatia, Builsa North, in partnership with some Danish donors, through Samuel Ansoboah, a native of the area based in Hvidovre, Denmark.

Making the presentation at the hospital, Roger Abolimbisa stated that the donation was aimed at boosting the hospital’s medical services.

The Builsa South MP thereby appealed to the hospital administration to put the items to good use to meet the health needs of the people.

Asangalisa Agnes Chigabatia advised the hospital staff and opinion leaders from the community to emulate their leadership examples as their MPs and co-exist peacefully to push forward the area’s development agenda.

She emphasized that politics is about development and not antagonism and asked them to embrace peace, unity and reconciliation as the hallmark of Sandema’s progress.

She also charged citizens of the area to channel their resources into developing the deprived communities in the district rather than investing in issues that divide their ranks.

She therefore challenged them to demonstrate the highest level of political tolerance in the run-up to the December polls, by being circumspect in their political campaigns.

James Sarkodie, the hospital’s Medical Superintendent, commended the MPs for their assistance and pledged his administration’s commitment to improving the health status of their clients.

Vida Anaab, a senior staff midwife, appealed for the expansion of the Maternity Ward to accommodate the large number of maternal cases that are referred to the hospital from satellite communities.

She explained that in view of the introduction of the free medical care for pregnant women by the government, the intake of maternal cases has assumed an alarming rate, leading to congestion in the ward.
