A group of well meaning citizens of the Upper West Region has launched a crusade to buy an ultramodern ambulance within the next three months to support emergency health service delivery in the region.

The launch held at the Regional Library Complex hosted several patrons who gathered to show their support for such a wonderful citizens project in the region.

The organisers explained the need for the Ambulance was very urgent in this time to augment the only two functional ones in the whole of the Upper West region.

Testimonies of situations where luck of ambulance had caused people their lives were however shared by some residents to further back the need to have such a vehicle.

The Chief Campaigner of the crusade and Regional Manager of GHACEM, Mr. Brain Seidu Sotaa, explained that "as humans our purpose in life is to benefit society irrespective of benefactor".

Mr. Brain added that the originator of the crusade Miss Kadija is not resident of the region yet she saw the need to mobilize resources to buy an ambulance for the region. He described it as a well intended course that society must support massively to achieve.

He said the collective efforts in this plight should be accepted by all as it stands to benefit everyone. He again used the gathering to call on other well meaning citizens to support in making the dream come true.

In a speech by Campaigner Lawyer Shakur Saed the Regional State Attorney referencing to Martin Luther King Jr, said "citizens must ask what they can do for their country and not what their country can do for them". He said it is time every citizen of the region came on board.

Lawyer Shakur went further to state the movement is nonpolitical and should be respected as such cautioning members to desist from using the crusade to score political points.

Miss Kadija Erasung, the Originator of the crusade pledged to commit resources to achieve dream of an ultramodern Ambulance for the Upper West Region.

She however thanked the Campaigners for their relentless drive so far in the quest to make her dream come through by calling on Upper West Youth Connect platform to continue to be ambassadors.
The Chairman of the campaign Mr. Kalla Gaitten said said it is of great concern that citizens took upon themselves to make impact into society emphasizing on the human resources available from the Upper West Region to contribute their widows mite.

An amount of GH¢ 200,000 is expected to be raised to purchase the ultramodern Ambulance for the region.
