The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Ayawaso West Assembly, Sandra Owusu Ahinkora who made the donation on behalf of Madam Opare on Monday said she chose Nkrumah’s birthday for the donation to demonstrate the importance of women in raising such great men.
She stated that the first female Chief of Staff in Ghana’s history is a mother who is very passionate about the welfare of pregnant women in Ghana.
“There cannot be birth without mothers and, therefore, our mother Frema Opare, a mother and a giver decided to reach out to women particularly those who have just given birth. She is also giving to pregnant women in a facility to encourage and to congratulate them,” she added.
She added that Madam Opare was the former MP of the area and in the past, she adopted the ward after a renovation of the facility’
“She has been very instrumental in the renovation and maintenance of the facility which is very dear to her heart. Since it was constructed she always pays a visit and donates periodically. She would have been here but for an important assignment at the Presidency”.
