Speaking to the media, Nana Akosua Nkrumah Adasah said that some women in the community have lost their lives due to various health problems.

“I built this health facility because of the women. In fact, people, especially when women went into labor, before they got a car and drove to Bibiani, they passed out and I couldn’t take it anymore and that’s why I did it. ” She said.

Atwima Mponua’s District Chief Executive, Isaac Kofi Marfo, also promised 200 bags of cement to complete the ongoing nurses’ quarters to accommodate the health workers.

In his opinion, the District Common Fund is not enough to run large projects, so individuals and organizations are required to support the community.
