In a remarkable gesture of compassion and foresight, North Tongu MP, Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has unveiled an initiative that is bound to win the hearts of many. This initiative promises to not only provide a warm welcome to newly posted nurses and midwives in the constituency but also address the critical issue of retaining healthcare professionals in Ghana.
A Warm Welcome: Free Accommodation at Premier Hotels
As part of this groundbreaking initiative, newly posted nurses and midwives arriving in the North Tongu constituency will be offered free one-month accommodation at three of the region’s leading hotels. This gesture aims to create a comfortable and stress-free transition for these healthcare heroes, allowing them to focus on their work and not worry about immediate housing concerns.
The three esteemed hotels partnering in this noble endeavor are;
Best Care Hotel in Battor,
Royal Masito in Mepe,
KOYA Lodge in Juapong.
These establishments have joined hands with Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa to provide a safe and welcoming haven for our dedicated healthcare professionals.
Empowering Our Heroes: Free L aptops
But that’s not all. During their one-month stay in these top-notch accommodations, the newly posted nurses and midwives will also receive free laptops courtesy of the MP’s office.
This invaluable tool will not only aid them in their healthcare duties but also enhance their professional development, enabling them to stay at the forefront of medical advancements.
A Beacon of Hope for Healthcare Professionals
The timing of this initiative couldn’t be more crucial. Ghana has been grappling with a significant exodus of nurses seeking better opportunities abroad. In 2022 alone, nearly four thousand nurses left the country in pursuit of higher-paying jobs overseas. High-income countries have been actively recruiting nurses from across Africa, creating a pressing need for innovative solutions to retain our healthcare workforce.
With Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa’s initiative, there’s hope on the horizon. By providing these much-needed resources and support, this visionary MP aims to not only attract healthcare professionals to North Tongu but also ensure they stay and thrive within the constituency.
Joining Hands for a Brighter Future
The MP extends his heartfelt gratitude to the District Health Directorate and the management of Best Care Hotel, Royal Masito, and KOYA Lodge for their unwavering support. Together, they are forging a partnership that will make a real difference in the lives of our healthcare heroes and, in turn, help save lives in North Tongu.
