Ghana: RUPFA Donates Gh¢62,400 Items to Health Facilities in UEER


Bolgatanga — The Rural Urban Partnership For Africa (RUPFA), an Accra-based non-governmental organisation (NGO), has supported three health facilities in the Upper East Region with a tricycle ambulance, two refrigerators, and 10 benches valued at GH¢62,400.

The beneficiary health facilities are Wabilinsa Community Health Planning Services (CHPS) Compound in the Builsa North Municipality, Baasa CHPS Compound and Kanjarga Health Centre, both in the Builsa South District.

Speaking at the handover ceremony at Kanjarga, the Country Director for RUPFA, Lily Osei, said the donation formed part of the organisation’s long-term ambition to support government to attain the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG3) which aspired to ensure health and the general wellbeing for all by 2030.

She said her organisation was touched by the acute healthcare related challenges, hence their pledge to contribute immensely to tackle crucial health infrastructure drive in the underserved communities in Ghana’s north.

The project which had funding support from Action Solidarite Pour Le Development Human (ASODH), France, she noted, would continue to focus on collaborating with development partners to undertake infrastructure development projects in the Upper East Region.

RUPFA, since its inception in 2009 , she said had embarked on scores of projects in many areas of national life, such as education, health, livelihood and economic empowerment, sports, agriculture, water and sanitation across the country.
