Obrempong Hima Dakyi (L) presenting the items to the hospital staff
Obrempong Hima Dakyi XIV, Paramount Chief of Upper Dixcove Traditional area in the Western Region, says he supports fully, the measures put in place by government to stop the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
He said he was elated when the President remarked that the economy could be fixed at any point in time but the government would not be able to bring back lives that had been lost as a result of the pandemic.
Obrempong Hima Dakyi stated this when he presented assorted food and other items to the Dixcove Hospital to support the fight against Covid-19.
“As a traditional leader, I have realized that it was prudent to ensure that we all support government in the fight against Covid-19,” he said, adding, “This is where I come from and so if my people are not healthy, I am equally not healthy. I learnt that about six residents have been quarantined for probably coming in contact with some people confirmed to be positive with the disease.”
He said “seeing our brothers being isolated is a big problem. So I am here to present these food and other items to the health facility to support our people who have been quarantined here.”
He called on his subjects and other philanthropists to support the only major health facility in the Ahanta West Municipality no matter how small it would be, towards the fight against Covid-19, adding “God loves a cheerful giver so let us give out of our hearts to support humanity.”
Timothy Kobina Ofori, the Municipal Health Director, mentioned that since he appealed for support to help fight the disease in the municipality, Nana Hima Dakyi had been the first person to go to the aid of the health facility.
“We are very happy and we appreciate what Nana has done. We thank him and may God richly bless him. Let me stressed that this is not the only thing nana has done to support the health facility.”
