Domeabra community is endowed with cash crops such as cocoa, rubber and coconut but the community is without a health facility.
Residents in the area have to travel for hours before accessing proper health care and it is for this reason that the Assembly Member of the area to broke grounds for the commencement of a CHPs Compound for the community.
The project is being sponsored by Mr. Pious Ofori, the Assembly Member for the area.
Speaking with the media, Mr. Ofori said, the government alone cannot provide infrastructure for its citizens and there is a need for him to support his people with a health care facility.
Mr. Ofori said he is building this facility without a Common Fund because he has a vision that if he supports the community with such a project, it will help solve the health issues his people are currently going through.
“I am financing everything to make sure the contractor completes the project on time and pleads with the community members to do all they can to support the construction of the project.
Mr. Pious Ofori seized the opportunity to appeal to the community folk to assist the contractor with communal labour.
