Mr Moses Anim, Member of Parliament (MP), for Trobu Constituency, Friday, donated medical equipment to some selected health facilities in the Constituency to enhance healthcare delivery.

Mr Anim commended health workers in the Municipality for their unwavering commitment and hardwork, and assured of his continued support to enhance the delivery of healthcare to the constituents.
“I will continue to support in every way possible to ensure that citizens would experience the best healthcare. I also call on other stakeholders to come on board to assist in every way possible.

Receiving the items on behalf of the health facilities, Dr Nhyira Essel, the Ga North Municipal Director of Health Services, expressed appreciation to the MP for his regular support.

Dr Victor Ceasar, the Medical Superintendent of Ga North Municipal Hospital, assured the MP that the equipment would be put to good use to meet the health needs of patients.
