The Member of Parliament (MP) for Daffiama-Bussie-Issa (BDI) Constituency, Dr. Sebastian Sandaare has donated medical items to the Daffiama Health Centre worth GH₵3,000.
The items included drugs, gallons of bleach, liquid soap among others.
The items were donated during the annual Daffiama-Bussie-Issa medical outreach programme which was started in 2010 with Dr. Sandaare as the financier of the annual programme.
There have been nine such successful outreach programs covering the length and breadth of the district.
Dr. Sandaare acknowledged the numerous challenges facing the DBI district regarding healthcare.
“The donation is a direct response to the call from the clinic prior to the medical outreach. If out of necessity the clients are compelled to send prescriptions to the drug store to buy drugs because there are no drugs at the facility,” he said
Mr. Sixtus Dery, who received the items, expressed gratitude and called on the government to timely reimburse the National Health Insurance claims to save the clinic from collapsing.
“We will always look forward to you the MP for support when the need arises” added Mr. Dery.
During the Duuyee Festival of the people of Daffiama, Dr. Sandaare donated a Ghc10,000 as seed capital for an Educational Endowment Fund.
Dr. Sabastian Sandaare was the District Director of Health of Lawra District Health Directorate before becoming Member of Parliament in 2017.
