Qatar Charity (QC) has inaugurated a new health centre in Ghana’s Dar ElSalaam village, with the support of the people of Qatar.
The health centre is expected to provide healthcare services to more than 2,000 individuals belonging to impoverished families of the village and neighbouring areas.
The 250sqm health centre is the first project of its kind in the area in the past 40 years. It provides vital healthcare services for the local community in Kadewaso.
Community leaders in Kadewaso and health officials in the Eastern region of Ghana stated that the new health centre is a beacon of hope for more than 2,000 people who have struggled immensely to receive primary healthcare services after the old clinic of the area was completely destroyed.
Emmanuel Annoh, the Assembly man of Kadewaso, where the health centre was constructed, expressed his happiness with the construction of the centre by the philanthropists of Qatar. He commended the ongoing efforts of Qatar Charity in serving the community and in assisting the impoverished at various levels.
The Atiwa East District health director, Vida Efua Afful, said: “I am very surprised at the speed and quality with which the facility was built and ready for operation. We are indeed grateful to Qatar Charity for this all-important edifice.”
Hasan Owda, director of Qatar Charity’s Ghana branch, said that the new health centre is an important component of the greater Dar ElSalaam model village project implemented by Qatar Charity in Ghana. He said that there were over 70 housing units under construction while 24 others had been completed.
