BRONG AHAFO REGIONAL BRANCH OF THE GHANA REGISTERED NURSES AND MIDWIVES ASSOCIATION SUPPORTS SICK COMMUNITY HEALTH NURSE
The Brong Ahafo regional branch of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association has extended a helping hand to a yet to be member of the Association.
The branch of the Association presented an amount of three thousand, six hundred Ghana (Ghs 3600.00) cedis to Esther Nanyim Donkor, a 27 years old community health nurse awaiting posting.
Ms. Esther Nanyim Donkor, a past student of the Tanoso Nursing Training College and a resident of Seni East district of the Bono East Region is currently on admission at the Orthopedic Unit of Methodist Hospital in Wenchi for a hip replacement.
Following her diagnosis and requirement for hip replacement surgery, the regional branch of the Association has found it imperative to extend a compassionate hand to a prospective member in need. The Regional Chairman, Mr. Fedelis Atibila in presenting the money to Ms. Esther at the orthopedic unit reiterated that the GRNMA not only has interest in its registered members but an extended concern in all nurses and midwives, including trainees of the various training institutions.
The Union has always risen to meet members at the dire point of need and this is yet a demonstration of such compassionate gestures. “Our support is unfailing for Esther in these moments and the necessary steps are being taken to ensure she recuperates faster than expected”, Atibila said.
