On the 7th day of April 2020, the western regional minister and Member of Parliament for Takoradi Kwabena Okyere-Darko Mensah, Member of Parliament for Sekondi Andrew Egyapa Mercer, Member of Parliament for Ketan-Essikado and Minister for Railway Hon. Lawyer Joe Ghartey, Member of Parliament for Kwesimintsim Joe Mensah, Member of Parliament for Effia and Deputy Minister for Energy Joseph Cudjoe donate Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs), Veronica Buckets, Sanitizers, Tissue Papers, Medical Safety Goggles, Liquid Soaps, Boxes of Bottled Water and Some Cash Amount to the leadership of our beloved Effia-Nkwanta Regional Hospital to aid the health professionals to work effectively and also protect themselves during the administering of their called duty in these times of Novel coronavirus spread.
These pivotal ministers and MPs who are from Sekondi Takoradi showed their appreciation for the good work health workers are doing in the Western Region by donating these items to the Western regional hospital, Effia Nkwanta.
This is a step in the right direction. it is my fervent hope that these gestures will be extended to other health centres in Sekondi Takoradi like the Takoradi hospital, Essikado hospital, Kwesimintsim Polyclinic because according to my findings these health facilities do not have enough PPE and other items relevant for the health workers to fight coronavirus as they discharge their duties.
