According to him, the aim of the Foundation is to ensure that the clients in the Middle Belt are well taken care of with the provision of adequate beds to ensure that no pregnant women and new mothers sleep on the floor for lack of beds.

Nana Prof. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei Woahene II, Otumfuo Hiahene and Board Chairman of the Otumfuo Foundation received the keys from Dr. Mokowa Blay Adu-Gyamfi, Board member of the Joberg Foundation.

He expressed the appreciation of the Asantehene and his wife to Joberg Foundation, Ghana, for prioritising the health needs of the people in the Middle belt.

The Hiahene disclosed that the project is very important to Lady Julia who planned the expansion of the Ward to ameliorate the plight of new mothers and pregnant women.

He explained that when Joberg Foundation approached her and expressed their intentions to help the Otumfuo Foundation build a Vocational Training center, Lady Julia rather directed them to build the maternity block as a priority and commended Joberg for the facility that stands to serve pregnant women and new mothers to help reduce mortality rate in the Middle belt, especially in the Ashanti region.
