God!!!...i ironed your logo for over 10years...my mum ,now retired, worked with GHS. She had different colour variations of the cloth too. Pink, Green, White...
Approach the authority to give you money to upgrade to a better one and I know you can deliver that better. It doesn't look more professional this time. Great effort.
May we also one day in the future see our achievements and be so proud of it!

Hope you cashed out,
Respect! Industry pioneer @MaxiAmetorgoh I used to see this logo when I was kid on national television, not knowing the face behind the logo was you all along.
I like how the egg in it signifies life and health
