History was made in Tema Manhean when Proud Ga Dangme Youth (PGDY) spearheaded the opening of the newly built post-natal clinic and refurbished maternity ward at Manhean Polyclinic. The commission on Saturday, July 20, 2019, comes on the heel of urgent calls by citizens; many of whom wanted a face-lift at the only health facility in the community.
The Lighthouse-based project was entirely funded by the family of Kai and Rev. Emmanuel Nunu Lartey of Living Word Outreach Ministries. These stakeholders came to the aid of the town when PGDY publicized the constraints of the health. Through an online campaign dubbed #SocialMediaForSocialChange, PGDY created awareness on the deplorable state of the facility; got funding and stakeholder support to embark on the good works.
The entire project was supervised by Owula Sorkoboi Behoko; with Dr Joseph H K Donkoh giving both supervisory ad advisory support.
The occasion was graced by Hon. Felix Nii Anang-La, the Metropolitan Chief Executive, Nii Adjetey Obour, our distinguished Chairman for the occasion; Hon Joseph Ashitey Larteh, Sub Metro Chairman, Hon. Isaac Ashai Odametten (Former mayor ), The traditional authority led by Nii Adjetey Agbo ll (Mankralo) clan; Dr John Yabani, Metro Health Director, Dr Joseph Donkoh, Head of Manhean Polyclinic, Dr Benjamin Amarh Ashitey, Lady Pastor Leticia Lartey, and other dignitaries.
