Nana Oheneba Boachie-Adjei Woahene II, Otumfuo Hiahene and Board Chairman of Otumfuo Foundation at the commissioning explained that the Asantehemaa was the brain behind the facility, upon observing what maternal mothers and their babies go through at the hospital.

He said Nana Konadu Yiadom showed concern upon learning that maternal mothers and their babies slept on the floor and benches for lack of space and beds.

As a result, the Asante Queen contacted the Otumfuo Foundation, through Lady Julia, the wife of Otumfuo, to assist the hospital to expand the maternity block.

Otumfuo Hiahene disclosed that Joberg Foundation had decided to build a fashion center to train young women in support of the Otumfuo Foundation, so it was prevailed upon by Joberg Foundation to use their Fund to build the maternity ward for the Manhyia District Hospital, instead of the planned Fashion centre.

Mr. Magnus Marteye, Chief Executive Officer of Joberg Foundation, on behalf of the Foundation, expressed their heartfelt gratitude to the incredible team at Manhyia District Hospital and everyone involved in making the project a reality.
According to him, the partnership between Joberg Foundation and Otumfuo Foundation is a testament to the power of collaboration to improve healthcare in our community.

He said it is not just a building, but a symbol of hope and a commitment to the well-being of mothers and their babies, a place where new life will be welcomed in the world, where families will experience the joy of childbirth and where health professionals would work tirelessly to ensure the safety and good health of both mother and child.

Nana Agyakumah Dufie, the Queen of Asante Mampong on behalf of the Asantehemaa, expressed gratitude to the Otumfuo Foundation and Joberg Foundation for naming the facility after her and appealed to stakeholders and individuals to contribute their quota to help resource the maternity block and the hospital as a whole.
