Ghana: Kasapreko and GIZ aid Bonuama community with ambulance, water plant

In a collaborative effort between Kasapreko Company Limited and the German Development Cooperation, a state-of-the-art ambulance has been generously donated to the Bonuama Polyclinic.

Situated within the Wassa Amenfi Central Municipality, the Bonuama Polyclinic stands as the largest healthcare institution in the region. Its construction was made possible through the philanthropic endeavors of Dr. Kwabena Adjei, the Group Chairman of Kasapreko Company Limited.

The polyclinic serves thousands of people in the Bonuamah community and surrounding areas, including Pensanom, Wirekokrom, and Nkakaa.

Speaking on the sidelines of the free health screening exercise held for the people of Bonuamah, Mr Richard Ajei, CEO of Kasapreko, said their support was crucial to improving the well-being of the people.

“We and GIZ have a partnership where we support deprived communities that don’t have health facilities. So, we go around every quarter to support these communities.

“The health screening was done to improve the well-being of the people as well as give their polyclinic a new ambulance to deal with emergency cases,” he said.

Mr Adjei further stated that the donation of a 53,000-litre water storage facility was part of the company’s “One4Life” charity-driven project for its Awake Purified Water brand.

“The provision of the water storage facility is to help the community have sufficient water flow for their various activities.

“The water from the storage has been well treated and purified to enable the Bonuama and surrounding community to have access to clean water,” he said.

Dr. Holger Till, Team Lead of develoPPP at GIZ, noted in a speech read on his behalf that they were committed to improving the well-being and health of deprived communities.

“The ambulance embodies not just a mode of transportation but hope resilience, and a huge sigh of relief that you will receive a swift response when there is an emergency.

“At GIZ, we are committed to sustainable development and striving to make the world worth living for everyone. We hope the ambulance will be used for its purpose and maintained properly,” he said.

Dr Yaw Ofori Yeboah, the Western Regional Health Director, expressed gratitude to Kasapreko and GIZ for their kind gesture, adding that it would improve the well-being of the people of Bonuama and surrounding communities.

He emphasized the importance of both individuals and corporate entities playing a role in advancing the provision of quality healthcare and promoting healthy lifestyles, particularly in underserved regions.

However, Dr. Yeboah also urged authorities to address the pressing issue of the deteriorating Bonuamah road. The condition of this road poses a significant obstacle to the delivery of quality healthcare to thousands of individuals in the area.
