Presenting the items to the hospital separately, the vice president of the Laterh Association (UK) Madam Monica Arthur observed their gesture follows the hospital’s request made due to lack of basic equipment and thus the response seeks to help improve the services of health care delivery at the facility.

Besides, she underscored how prestigious it became for some citizens living in abroad especially the UK and Canada groups to always attend to the dire needs of the people because it is their civic responsibility to give back to their native “Larteh” town amid contributing their quota to development.

Madam Arthur further asked management of the Laterh Health Centre to highly patronize the maintenance culture of the items to enable it use for the right purposes, a condition she said will motivate them to do more in the near future.

Similarly, Mr. Thomas Obiri Yirenkyi, who represented the Larteh Association of Canada explained that there is more of such steps for the people of Larteh and its environs.

Receiving the items, a Nurse of the facility, Vivian Tordzro commended Larteh Association UK and Larteh Association Canada for their support and generosity to the hospital.
