A Multi-Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) cited by the Ghana Health Service (GHS) has reported at least 44% of children between 6 and 59 months in the Upper East region as carrying disturbing loads of malaria parasites in their bloodstreams.
Ghana’s fast rising female biker, Akua Gaddafi and her husband, Mr John Soumare, have donated items to residents of Anapansu, a small community in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region.
The items included 1,500 books for the Anapansu Primary School, a cash donation of GH¢ 2,200 for the registration of 200 children into the National Health Insurance Scheme and other items including bed sheets, soap, sugar, milo, milk to the aged and elderly in the community.
About 4,263 communities have benefitted from the Ghacem Cement Foundation (GCF) support since its inception in 2002, Nana Prah Agyensaim VI, the Chairman of the foundation has said.
Nana Agyensaim, who was speaking at the GCF northern sector awards ceremony in Kumasi, said for 14 years now, the foundation had distributed free cement to some health and educational institutions in the country to support them in their infrastructure development.
