The photos show abandoned rooms in Mampong Maternity Hospital. The hospital was deprived of much of its funding under previous governments, and now needs renovating and re-equipping throughout. This is the worst part and is destined for critically ill new born babies.
The hospital has promised that it will keep refurbished rooms in good condition. We have a permanent presence in the area and will ensure this is done.
Signing the Future
This new signpost stands at the junction of the main road and the Bonkron road to the Gyetiase (or Jetiase) eye clinic. We’re not sure why patient and doctor look so European, as few Europeans are likely to visit – except of course for the Ashanti volunteers who probably won’t be asking for treatment.
The signpost is going up because our clinic has recently obtained government registration and is finally open for business.
