- A photo posted by UNICEF Ghana on its Facebook page has generated some concerns from Ghanaians
- UNICEF Ghana revealed in a caption along with the photo that staff had to travel through a flooded road to deliver medical supplies in the Northern region
- Some concerned Ghanaians have shared in the plights of residents in the underserved area
While a photo shared by UNICEF Ghana amplifies the organization's resolve to reach underserved communities in the country with aid, it has equally highlighted the life-threatening situations residents in these areas brave daily.
It appears people living in deprived areas in the country, live in a world apart from the rest of city folk, which is evident in their living conditions, a lack of decent social amenities and proper road network.
YEN.com.gh reported in 2019 that a man identified as Coleman Adator, recounted how two Ghanaian community health nurses, en route to an inaccessible area in Accra to deliver medical supplies, had been compelled to get off the truck to trek miles on foot because they feared getting stuck in the untarred muddy road after they had served the people of Aminapa.
On its Facebook page, UNICEF Ghana indicated that staff of the organization had to travel through flooded roads to deliver medical supplies to undertake a polio immunization campaign in the Northern region.
The organization shared a photo of the event on its Facebook page which has since sparked concerns from some Ghanaians.
''Regrettably people are engaging in all sought of corruption at the mercy of the ordinary Ghanaian.
Imagine the struggle people have to go through to render quality health services to hard to reach communities,'' Nuhu Kantamah Abdul Ganiyu, said in reaction to the post.
Jalil Zakaria, also wrote: ''It reminds of how we swam in similar waters in the upper east region in the 2007 floods to support farmers salvage the little farms left for food security.
It is not for nothing development organisation use four wheel cars unlike those who use V8s in towns. Lol.
Humanity is the winner!''
''Be real that is the road to Saboba mention the name of town and let politician know town help them,'' Prince Bichado John said.
For now, residents in underserved communities such as the one visited by UNICEF Ghana, would have to bet on hope, that perhaps one day, they too would have a slice of the national cake.
Meanwhile, in a game largely dominated by men, the coaching strides of a resilient Ghanaian woman, Patience Aggrey, has waved through 'screaming' headlines to surface as a story worth telling.
While some female football coaches have successfully toppled the daunting challenges that come with being women in a male-dominated profession, coupled with motherhood, others have gone lengths to chalk remarkable strides as footballing coaching professionals.
