Nursing mothers at Dadoto, a farming community in the Krachi East Municipality of the Oti Region, who access reproductive and child welfare services at the Dadoto Health Centre, are attended to under mango trees.
This is as a result of inadequate infrastructure at the health facility to cater for the reproductive and child welfare clinic.
Some mothers, who spoke to voltaonlinegh.com, said the situation has created a lot discomfort for them as they were compelled to stay under the mango trees to weigh their children.
“Anytime it is about to rain the nurses here send us home,” one of them lamented, as they appealed to the assembly and the central government to come to their aid by constructing a pavilion for the reproductive and child health unit.
Etornam Tsakesu, the health officer at the facility, described the situation as worrying and added his voice to the call for a pavilion at the centre to save the situation.
