IBSYC raises funds to construct CHPS facility for Assin Aseretoase
A Non-Governmental Organisation, NGO, I Smile Because You Care (ISBYC) has raised funds to construct a Community Health-based Planning Services (CHPS) facility for the people of Assin Aseretoase in the Assin South District of the Central Region.
A full documentary of the project was premiered at the launch and fundraising which took place on Saturday July 23, 2022, at the Ebenezer Methodist Church, Lashibi-Community 20, in Accra.
Speaking at the ceremony, President of ISBYC, Erasmus Aidoo said, the project when completed would help in the provision of quality healthcare to the people.
He added that it would mitigate deaths due to delay in accessing primary healthcare as the nearest CHPS facility from the community was miles away.
Mr.Aidoo further said that it would also end the practice of transporting patients in health crises and pregnant women in labour on tricycles as well as provide primary healthcare to neighbouring communities like Assin Kansere, Assin Betwease, Assin Kotobabi and Assin Dosii.
He expressed appreciation to all who turned up at the fundraising to contribute their quota to the project.
The facility will have an Out-Patient Department, Dispensary, Staff quarters, Wards, Kitchen, Delivery and Consulting rooms among others, will cost GH¢340,000.
ISBYC was able to raise some funds from guests and executives who attended the fundraising ceremony.
The NGO has impacted lives of millions with the Love of Jesus Christ through evangelical outreaches, educational scholarships and other humanitarian support.
