“In addition to these clinics, plans are underway for the construction of the ultra-modern Children’s hospital first of its kind in the Central Region also ongoing in Winneba.”
The Deputy Majority leader made a cash donation of ¢10,000 to the Effutu Health Directorate to purchase drugs and other basic essentials for the smooth commencement of work at the facility.
