This presentation forms part of season three of Airtel?s award winning television show, Airtel Touching Lives, which run under the theme ?Make your change?.
The Adansi community clinic featured on the popular television show as a community clinic with many infrastructural and human resource problems. A total number of ten staffs serve over 3,000 people in and around the community. They had no proper water supply, no electricity, and no means of transport to aid nurses in outreach programs and other transport needs of the clinic.
The staffs of the clinic, hitherto, had to go through the ordeal of carrying medical supplies on their heads and trekking to and from villages and outreach centres to offer health care to the villagers and invalids, a situation which affects the quality of service given.
Airtel Ghana, standing by its strong commitment to serve communities in which it operates, has provided the clinic with a water pump, standby generator, computers and patients mattresses and a motorbike to improve the infrastructural needs of this viable but needy clinic to enable it serve the Adansi and surrounding communities better.
Zonal Business Manager for Airtel Ghana in the Western Region, Emmanuel Owusu-Sarfo, presenting the items to the clinic said ?Airtel Ghana was touched and inspired by the efforts of the staff of the clinic to improvise and go the extra mile of extending basic health assistance to the doorstep of patients in remote communities. We are here, in that regard, to offer our support with these items to help the clinic in their outreach programme. This will definitely enhance the work of the passion driven and hardworking staff of the Adansi clinic as they continue to deliver health services in remote communities. We believe that this donation will also motivate them to continue giving off their best for this community?.
Mrs. Joyce Y. Mensah, representing the Mporhor District Health Director thanked the telecommunication company when she received the motorbike on behalf of the clinic. She said, ?We are very grateful to Airtel Ghana through their social responsibility initiative, Airtel Touching Lives, for this presentation. We acknowledge the timely support you have given to this clinic as beneficiaries of your Touching Lives initiative. We pledge to ensure regular maintenance on these items to help our staff to meet the health needs of the people of Adansi and its environs?.
