Nene Tettey Kwao I, Chief of Luom in the Shai-Osudoku District, has released a parcel of land to Dynamic United Stars Africa Foundation (DUSAF), an Accra-based non-profit making organisation, to put up a health facility for the community.
Drawings of the project have been submitted to the Health and Works departments of the Shai-Osudoku Assembly for study and approval, after which the project would commence.
Meanwhile, the Chief and elders of Luom and DUSAF have broken ground to officially announce the project the non-profit making organisation is sending to the deprived farming community, where the people travel to health facilities at Dodowa, Akuse, Somanya, Agormeda or Tema, which are several kilometres away.
DUSAF’s aid follows a free health screening exercise it carried out at Luom, where the non-governmental organisation (NGO) identified a health facility as the most pressing need of the community, Deborah Oduro, President of DUSAF, told The Chronicle in an interview.
DUSAF is a charity organisation that aims at eradicating poverty in Africa and beyond, with support from its sister foundations, including Chilky Foundation, Hero Movement, Skid Media GH, Tyrant Kay and Sickle Cell Family.
Among the charities DUSAF had been able to carry out are donating two sewing machines to the Autism Awareness, Care and Training Center in Accra, to help kids with autism develop skills, and donation of food items, learning materials and toiletries to the Good Shepherd Orphanage Home in Kasoa.
The Luom health facility is the last community in Greater Accra DUSAF is attempting to show its infrastructural benevolence with before stepping into the Eastern Region to reach out to the needy and under-privileged.
Deborah Oduro hoped that the Shai-Osudoku Assembly would quickly go through DUSAF’s architectural drawings and approve them for work on the health facility to earnestly commence.
DUSAF intends to put up a general hospital for the Luom community, consequently, Miss Oduro said her outfit would welcome financial and material support from philanthropists and corporate organisations.
Nene Tetteh Kwao I, Chief of Luom, on behalf of the community, thanked DUSAF for associating itself with the pressing needs of the community, and expressing willingness to do what governments have failed to do.
He pleaded with the Shai-Osudoku District Assembly to be swift in studying and approving the drawings of the health facility for the early start of the project, to save the funds from depreciation, considering the volatility of the commodities market.
