An appeal for medical supplies and equipment by a nurse at the Nyive Health Center of the Volta Region, received an immediate response from Volunteers for International Medical Aid, VIMA, a California-based International humanitarian organization.
Vincentia Rita Sedofia, a Nurse at Nyive, a border community in the Ho Municipality, appealed to the Non-Governmental Organization through correspondence to support their facility which lacked basic medical equipment and supplies.
The situation according to her, was impeding basic health care delivery in the border town.
Her appeal followed a visit by VIMA to the facility.
A twelve-member delegation from the United States together with their Ghanaian counterparts, were at the facility to donate medical supplies which include mattresses, bed covers, syringes, C-section equipment, detergents and hand gloves.
The founder and CEO of VIMA, Francis Kwame Agbemafle, told Citi News his outfit would adopt the facility by periodically supplying it with medical equipment as well as deploying volunteers from the United States to support workers at the facility.
Volunteers for International Medical Aid, VIMA, is a California-based International humanitarian organization, established by a Ghanaian citizen living in the United States, to help provide the much needed medical aid to some rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa.
The organization supports five orphanages in rural Ghana.
Vincentia Rita Sedofia thanked VIMA for the swift response.
The chiefs and people of Nyive, expressed their gratitude for the gesture, and called on other organizations to support the community in areas of education and health.
