The project will be founded by the Tain District Assembly through the District Development Funds (DDF). The project is expected to be completed in 4 months.
In his welcome address, Nana Kyere Amaniampong I, kurontihene of Hani thanked the District Chief Executive for the Project, saying the community had been pushing for this project sometimes now.
He also appealed to the DCE for electricity extension to new sites of the community, upgrade of their CHPS compound to health centre, delivery beds, police post, public toilet and to also help them complete their weighing centre.
The DCE in her address said the quarters will have 3unit bedroom with toilet facilities in each of the room, common hall and a kitchen. According to the DCE, the project when completed will help attracting nurses accepting posting to community since they will not be facing accommodation challenges.
She explained that the accommodation of health service personnel is as important as the service delivery process, hence the construction of the staff quarters.
She added that, so far a number of poor school infrastructures, bad road network across the district, electricity extensions, lack of police post at most of the communities, and among others had been identified all over the district which efforts would be made to resolve.
Madam Charity Akua Foriwaa Dwommoh assured the chiefs and people in the Tain District of government’s determination to help bring the needed development to them.
