Nsoatre, (B/R), Nov.
09, GNA – Kinderhulp Ghana, a Netherlands-based charitable organisation has
within a four-year period spent Gh¢1.2 million for the provision of educational
and health infrastructure in the Sunyani West District.

Between 2012 and
2016, the organisation constructed 17 mechanised boreholes, seven
Community-based Health Planning Services (CHPS) Compounds, several classroom
blocks, toilets and other sanitary facilities in deprived communities in the
District.

Beneficiary
communities included Aduonya, Kwabena-Kuma, Adaeboroso, Kantro, Nkranketewa,
Nkwantaso and Nsoatre.

In addition, the NGO
presented three safari motorbikes worth GH¢160,000.00 to the Aduonya,
Kwabena-Kuma and Adaeboroso health centres in 2018.

In an interview with
the GNA during a handing-over ceremony of a classroom block to the Nkranketewa
Africa Faith Primary School, Mr. Hans Voortman, Board Member of the Kinderhulp
Ghana, pledged his organisation’s commitment to support the development of the
District.

The NGO has
furnished the eight classroom block with office and store, constructed at the
cost of GH¢98,000.00 with 150 dual desks and teachers tables and chairs to
facilitate effective teaching and learning.

Some pupils of the
school sustained degrees of injury when a shed they were studying under
collapsed around May, this year and that necessitated the building of the new
one.

Mr. Solomon Boateng,
the Founder and Director of Heart for Children Foundation Ghana, an NGO and
local partners of Kinderhulp, thanked the Dutch Foundation for the support
provided to the people of Ghana and was hopeful that such supports would be
extended.

Mr. Elvis Boateng,
the Head teacher of Nkranketewa Africa Faith Primary School, expressed
appreciation to the NGO and appealed to them to construct toilet and borehole
facilities for the school.
