A state-of-the-art health facility fully funded and constructed by the Church of Pentecost at Kultamise, near Bawku in the Upper East Region has been commissioned and handed over for use.
The facility, which was constructed to take care of the health needs of the people at Kultamise and its environs, was constructed at the cost of GH¢ 850,000.00.
The fully furnished single-level health facility, comprises an attached residential accommodation for the staff, fully furnished Outpatient Department (OPD), Male and Female Wards, Delivery Ward, Dispensary, washrooms for both patients and staff, Laboratory, and Consulting Rooms.
Commissioning the health facility on Thursday, June 24, 2021, Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, the General Secretary of the Church, said the construction of the edifice was informed by the urgent need to provide a health facility that can serve Kultamise and its surrounding communities to help reduce maternal and child mortality in the district.
According to him, during the rainy season, the people living in the area usually go through hell in accessing healthcare as they often had to cross a major river to Pusiga.
This situation, according to residents, has contributed to worsening the plight of pregnant women in the area, especially when in labour, as their spouses had to carry them on their back or on motorbikes to cross the river to access healthcare in Pusiga.
