A Ghanaian spare parts dealer, Michael Banahene, has built a first-class hospital in the Lapaz community in the Greater Accra Region.
In an Instagram post, Nana Aba Anamoah said Michael was motivated to build the hospital some years back when his son was ill. Almost every public hospital he was referred to failed to attend to them because there was no bed.
Micheal, also an East Legon Executive Club member, chose to situate the hospital in Lapaz because it was the community where he started hustling for a better life.
"When his son was suddenly taken ill a few years ago, almost every public hospital he was referred to claimed there were no beds. A troubled Michael Banahene decided to build a hospital after that overwhelmingly sad episode. He chose to develop the hospital at Lapaz, the neighbourhood that birthed his hustle. Michael is a member of the East Legon Executive Club," Nana Aba said.
