Senya (B/A), Nov. 17, GNA - Residents of Senya, a farming community in Nkoranza North District, are self-financing the construction of a clinic estimated at about GH¢ 10,000 in the area. Every adult male is contributing five Ghana cedis and adult female three Ghana cedis towards the project.

Mr Baffoe Krampim, immediate past Assembly Member for the area, told=

the Ghana News Agency that the community initiated the project to address=

the problems that faced them in accessing health facilities. "The nearest health centre that serves the community is at Yefri, wh= ich is about 12 kilometers away," he said, adding that the clinic, when completed, would serve other four settler farming communities, namely Konkrompe, Nyamebekyere, Atta-Kurom and Moi. Mr Krampim said the authorities of the Nkoranza North District Directorate of Health Services had assured the people of posting a Commun= ity Health Nurse to manage the clinic.

He however complained that a major challenge was lack of funds to furnish the clinic and appealed to the District Assembly to assist to ena= ble the people to enjoy quality health delivery service. Mr Krampim called on non-resident citizens to visit home regularly t= o help initiate development projects and to contribute towards their completion. 17 Nov. 10
