Hope of safe and dignified child delivery is on the horizon as Mangotideke residents anticipate the completion of a delivery centre which is under construction after a Joy News documentary.

The centre is near completion at a village in the Volta region where the chief doubles as a midwife and does deliveries on the bare floor.

The construction of the centre which can also be used as a clinic for the village started after a Joy News hotline documentary, Left Behind.

The documentary highlighted the plight of pregnant women in the village. 

With financial support from a WhatsApp group called Paddies, a lecturer at the Ho technical university Dr Devine Novieto is confident, the centre will soon be completed and handed over to the community. 

Watch the video report as pregnant women there are competing to be first to deliver at the centre.
