An NDC youth group, Diplomatic Platform, has extended its charity arm towards a total of 500 underprivileged dwellers at Adansi Anhwiaso, a village located in Adansi Asokwa Constituency of the Ashanti Region, by getting them registered under the National Health Insurance Scheme free of charge.
The group toured some parts of area last week purposely to reach out to the poor rural dwellers in their bid to help them meet their health needs by guarantying their easy enrollment onto the National Health Insurance Scheme.
In all, a total of 500 beneficiaries, both men and women, were registered and their NHIS cards handed to them instantly to help them access healthcare whenever the need arose.
According to Julius Logass, administrator of the Diplomatic Platform, the gesture forms part of President John Dramani Mahama and the NDC’s social intervention and transformational agenda to reach out to the poor in the society by helping them get easy access to health delivery.
“The National Democratic Congress as a social democratic party whom we represent would always put in place the needed reasons to the benefit of the deprived in our community,” Julius added.
In a separate development the Platform has also donated an unspecified amount of cash to Anhwiaso D/A Junior High School in the Ashanti Region to aid them towards completion of a classroom block project, which the school is currently undertaking to enhance learning and teaching in the area.
Members of the platform also paid a courtesy call on the Chief of Adansi Anhwiaso, Nana Korankye Sarfo, to ask for his blessings in their political affairs ahead of the 2016 election, before making a return trip back to Accra.
The Diplomatic Platform is a whatsapp platform created with youth membership of 100 who share in the principles and ideology of the National Democratic Congress Party (NDC).
This is the fourth time the Platform has stretched its charity arm to support a worthy cause since its inception in July 22, 2014.
First was the Weija Leprosarium followed by the inmates of the Akropong School for the blind and now over five-hundred deprived rural dwellers in Adansi Anhwiaso village plus the Anhwiaso D/A Junior High School in the Ashanti Region.
