GCB Bank has supported the Paramount queen-mother of Alavanyo Traditional Area with ¢100,000 to construct a new maternity facility.
The commissioning of the facility in Alavanyo Dzogbedze in the Volta Region facility coincided with the celebration of the 15th anniversary of the installation of Mamaga Ametor Hoebuadzu II known in private life as Barbara Peace Atiboli, as the queen-mother.
Speaking at a durbar as part of the celebrations and the commissioning ceremonies, the Paramount Chief of Alavanyo, Togbe Tsedze Atakora VII, commended the queen for showing exemplary leadership and giving women in the area a safe place to deliver.
Dr Pius Mensah, the Acting Municipal Director of Health Services, said the municipal health directorate would work with key stakeholders to ensure that the facility was well equipped.
The Volta/Oti Regional Manager of GCB Bank Ltd, Mohammed Mipo Osmanu, hinted that the Bank might also consider the furnishing and equipping of the facility.
Rita Enyonam Agor, a health practitioner who used to lead a team of three community health nurses at the facility until her study leave, narrated how challenging it was to provide essential and basic health services to the over 9000 residents in beneficiary Alavanyo communities of Dzogbedze, Deme and Agorme.
“With the new maternity facility built with the support of GCB Bank, skilled deliveries can be made in Alavanyo as midwives will now be posted there to support the Community Health Nurses.
“And eventually, infections associated with home deliveries will drastically reduce,” she added.
Mamaga Ametor Hoebuadzu II urged traditional leaders not to use their position to oppress their subjects, but uplift them.
