Inauguration of Nsein Community Health Centre

Ghana Rubber Estates Limited (GREL), as part of its policy to fulfil its social responsibility, has constructed and furnished a Community Health Centre for the people of the Nsein and other adjoining communities within Nsein Traditional Area of Nzema East Municipal Assembly.

The construction of the facility, which cost GHS 750,000.00, is expected to support the efforts of the Ghana Health Service (GHS) in the delivery of quality primary health care to the residents of Nsein and other adjoining communities, including Ayisakro, Ankyeryin, Avrebo, students of Nsein SHS, Awukyire, etc.

The Corporate Affairs Manager, Mr Perry Acheampong read a speech on behalf of the Managing Director to thank all stakeholders for their support in making this project a successful one. He also encouraged the communities to continue to maintain the peace in the area as it is critical to the development of any community.

More light was thrown on the various CSR projects undertaken by GREL in the last decade, which amounted to about 4,000,000.00 Euros. He said that beyond the production of latex, GREL is embarking on four key sustainable development goals, which include the provision of potable drinking water, improving access to education and primary health care within the operational communities and also respecting and carrying out its operations within local and international environmental laws.

In his speech, the Paramount Chief of Lower Dixcove, Nana Kwesi Agyeman IX, (Chairman of ACLANGO), who also chaired the occasion, asked the people to take care of the facility and also patronize the services that will be rendered because they are the reason it was built.

The Municipal Health Director, Mrs Priscilla Ama Amoah expressed her gratitude to GREL for providing such an edifice. She stressed the fact that it was her first time that she had witness the handing over of a fully furnished Health Centre to a Community by a private Company and request-ed more support such as a laboratory, computers and accommodation for health staff who would be working at the facility.

A Health Management Committee was inaugurated and was mandated to liaise between the people and the Health Service to ensure the smooth running of the facility.
