One thousand persons in the Asokore Mampong Community and adjoining towns especially children and the aged are being registered on the National Health Insurance Scheme by Calvary Charismatic Center (CCC), a famous church ⛪ in Kumasi.

Speaking to the media Monday morning, Reverend Ransford Obeng, General Overseer of CCC said the idea to register these numbers formed part of his resolution for the celebration of his 67 birthday which fell last Tuesday.

He noted that aside the annual blood donation exercise that precedes his birthday celebrations, he decided to add the registration of persons on the NHIS this year.

“You know i have been leading a mass blood donation exercise every time i celebrate my birthday and this year marks seven years since we did that but this year in addition to this i decided to register 1000 persons especially children and the aged on NHIS”, Reverend Obeng stated.

NHIS District Officer:
Mr Dei Owusu Ampofo, Public Relations Officer at the Asawase District commended the General Overseer of CCC for the gesture.

He noted that many have still not registered on the health scheme.

This, he stated was a bother to the NHIA since the scheme provides opportunity to all in the country to access care at no costs at the hospital.
