First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, has urged individuals and institutions “to work together to promote healthy-living among all people living in Ghana, irrespective of their social setting.”
Mrs. Akufo-Addo made this call while launching Rotary Club’s 2018 Rotary Family Health Days campaign at the Osu Presbyterian Church Hall in Accra.
The three-day health programme by Rotary intends to provide critical health services to 50,000 underserved women, children, and families in 50 deprived communities across the country.
In her address, the First Lady commended Rotary for their initiative adding that with their proven record of success in addressing health needs of various communities in the country, she is confident they will achieve their target for this initiative.
She also commended them for their “work in the construction of clinics and the provision of medical equipment and supplies, clean water, sanitation facilities and training of health staff” and encouraged them to have greater and better collaboration with the Ministries of Health, Gender, Children and Social Protection, Education and Sanitation and Water Resources.
