Nii Afotey Anokwafo and his elders after the programme
The Brick Lane Civil Company Limited last week organised
a malaria awareness programme for the residents of Danfa, near Accra.
The company, which is located at the La Nkwantanan
Municipality, collaborated with the Ghana Health Service for the free malaria
screening at the Danfa Methodist Basic School and covered communities such as
Danfa, Adoteiman, Kweiman and Otinibi.
Present at the programme themed: “Zero Malaria Starts with Me” were Nii
Djane Tsuru Afutu Brempong IV, Chief of Danfa; Nii Neequaye Amassah, Gyasetse
Danfa; Nii Laryea Brenya, Mankralo Danfa; Nii Djane Amassah, acting stool head,
Adoteiman; and Seth Nii Annan, stool secretary, Danfa.
After the programme, Nii Djane Tsuru Afutu Brempng IV
thanked the engineering company for the gesture and urged other companies to emulate
its example. He also urged residents to keep their surroundings clean so that
mosquitoes would not find breeding places.
He pleaded with the government and the company to
support the construction of an SHS. He
has allocated an eight-acre land for the construction.
A representative of the company, Simon Boateng Boadi,
expressed gratitude to the chiefs for the warm reception accorded the company
and promised to continue to support the community.
