Three years ago, the chiefs and residents of Teshie Praso in the Asante-Akyem South Municipality requested assistance from the government and non-governmental organizations in order to initiate the construction of a desperately needed clinic in their community.
This request was submitted on July 14, 2021.
In response to an Adom News report published in 2021, a ‘Good Samaritan’ domiciled in the United Kingdom, Rev. Nana Adom, with support from The Church of Pentecost, took the initiative to build a health center for Teshie Praso.
The community of Teshie Praso and its neighboring areas in the Asante-Akyem South Municipality faced numerous healthcare challenges over the years, which were frequently covered by Adom News.
Consequently, the chief and residents of Teshie Praso thanked Adom News for their impactful reporting, and this was evident during a recent visit by Adom News’ Isaac Amoako to the area where the ongoing construction of the health center could be observed.
Niikoi Sasraku II, the chief of Teshie Praso, could not contain his delight as he praised Adom News and thanked Rev. Nana Adom and The Church of Pentecost for their contribution to the construction of the health center.
During the presentation of the facility to the community, Rev. Nana Adom, pastor of Grace Community Church Redhill in London, explained the rationale behind building the health centre for the Teshie Praso communities.
Elder Alexander Kwame Nkattie Frimpong, the health coordinator of The Church of Pentecost, told Adom News that the church had set aside Ghc 700,000 to purchase necessary medical apparatus and support the health centre’s staff.
Alexander Frimpong, the Asante Akyem South Municipal Chief Executive, assured the community that the municipality would be involved in the operation of the health center.
