Malcolm Ali, a member of the Coalition of Concerned Nurses and Midwives (CCNM) shared the post on the group’s Facebook page.
The photos show the female nurse carrying a medical box while crossing a stream to provide health care to persons in a deprived part of the country.
Malcom Ali shared the heart-wrenching photos along with a message detailing the ordeal nurses in underserved communities go through to provide health care services to residents.
''This is what we go through just to deliver health care services. Despite the circumstances and the passion for the job alone we risk our lives in order to save all children under 5 years from vaccine preventable diseases,'' Ali said in his Facebook post.
He continued: ''Whether we are being appreciated or not we know heaven acknowledges our efforts. Not to talk of the numerous dumsor we face at our various CHPS ZONES where you have to move from one facility to the other just to preserve the potency of your vaccines.
May God protect those of us who go through similar situations just to deliver health care.
I AM A PROUD CHN.''
Meanwhile, a recent photo has surfaced online of Ghana’s highest serving convict, Raymond Ayittey, who became famed as Atta Ayi owing to being one of the country’s most wanted criminals.
According to Pulse Ghana, on February, 2005, Atta Ayi was arrested following a tip-off by his niece for a different crime he had committed.
And in 2005, Atta Ayi was sentenced to 160 years in prison with hard labour on the charges of robbery and conspiracy to rob by Supreme Court Judge, Justice Baffoe-Bonnie.
Currently, Ataa Ayi is serving 160 years at the Ankaful Maximum security prisons in Cape Coast, Central region.
