Afari Military Hospital, which is located between Kumasi and Nkawie in the Atwima Nwabiagya District of the Ashanti Region of Ghana, has been captured in a recent video.

Amidst the trending hashtag calling on the government to FixTheCountry, the video that was taken by a former Ashanti Regional Deputy Minister showed that the place has been abandoned.

The hospital was built and commissioned under former President John Dramani Mahama but has now been left to the mercy of the weather after power exchanged hands.

Meanwhile, a disturbing video surfaced on social media showing the deplorable state of nursing mothers lying on the bare floor with their day-old babies.

The footage sighted by YEN.com.gh on the verified Twitter handle of Ameyaw Debrah was taken at the Manhyia Government Hospital in Kumasi, Ashanti Region, as the voice-over in the footage indicated.

The only layer of support that lay between the mother, their kids, and the floor in the video were thin cloths instead of comfortable mattresses at least.
