Admittedly, our country Ghana is ridden with plethora of grave challenges on many fronts of our national life, be it health, education and the a dire human resource development.
There has been a rigorous and deliberate homegrown solutions to these cancerous problems. However, those solutions overtime have proven to be woefully inadequate.
Against the backdrop of this, MediHelp is one Non-Governmental Organization that has made unwavering commitment to complimenting the efforts towards salvaging the underprivileged from the depth of vulnerability. The radar of the NGO focuses on the vulnerable, their health and welfare.
Recently, the preoccupation of the NGO has been to resolve the acute shortage of beds and other critical equipment in Ghanaian health facilities.
MediHelp has acquired from Europe over 30 fully équipéd Hospital beds , over 20 wheel chairs , 75 boxes of cloths , 25 pieces of walking aids and and a host of other equipments in a 40feet container. All the necessary and required documentation has been done and completed.
Be that as it may, the glaring stumbling block in their spirited effort to offer aid is another biggest challenge of import bill and port charges.
MediHelp management partnered by its West African Coordinator, Mr. Frank Agyeman Prempeh, has made strenuous effort to ensure the equipment is brought down to help the underprivileged with dispatch. They are confronted with a deep-seated bureaucratic processes that is reducing morale of people who are ready to help. It is a worrying phenomenon that our system does not favor and actually discourages donors with a genuine mindset to help.
MediHelp and its management make a passionate appeal to the Ghanaian leadership to relax and make the system friendly to allow the organization offer the much needed aid to many citizens who lack basic health needs.
