Appolonia – City of Light, the mixed-use urban development near Accra has recently procured and installed a water treatment plant at the health center within the Appolonia community. The plant will treat the ground water that supply’s the facility after test showed the supply to be saline.

The partnership between the Appolonia Community and Rendeavour, Africa’s largest urban land developer is becoming more entrenched not only on the urban development project but also through the commitment to provide sustainable benefits from the Appolonia development project such as improved health delivery in the community.

“We are delighted to have helped provide a clean and sustainable water solution to the community Health Center,” said Anthony Okyere, CEO of Appolonia, City of Light. “We expect to continue liaising with the community and are fortunate to have such a welcoming partner in our project.”

The center’s rehabilitation by Rendeavour, alongside its partnership with the Kpone Katamanso District Health Management team led by Mrs. Patience Ami Mamattah has ensured that the facility acquired health insurance accreditation in January 2015. The facility commenced operation as an accredited center in July 2015.

“Rendeavour’s commitment to ensuring that the Appolonia community develops even as the Appolonia City of Light project progresses is encouraging and contributions such as these give us confidence in this partnership” said Timothy Tetteh, Assembly man of Appolonia Community on behalf of the Chief.

Since its accreditation, the Health Center has witnessed a huge increase in patronage, as residents are now able to access free basic health care without need to travel long distances.
