The Wuripe & Sons Royal Lodge in collaboration with the Palace of the Paramount Chief of the Bole Traditional Area Bolewura Sarfo Kutuge Feso (I) embarked on a project to register 1,000 (One thousand) less privileged people within the Bole Traditional Area (Bole and Sawla-Tuna-Kalba Districts) into National Health Insurance (NHIS) data base.
At the launch of the project at the NHIS office in Bole, the General Manager of the Wuripe & Sons Royal Lodge Mr Dziwornu James said the registration of the 1,000 people in the Bole and Sawla-Tuna-Kalba Districts is part of the agenda to celebrate their 2nd Anniversary.
Dziwornu James said vulnerable people must be assisted by philanthropists, organisations and individuals to live healthy lives adding “healthy people constituted a healthy nation” and so such people also needed to be strong to contribute to the development of the country.
The Wuripe & Sons Royal Lodge Manager further said their facility since it was commissioned in September 2022, has embarked activities that has benefited the people of Bole Traditional Area.
He said the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Wuripe & Sons Royal Lodge has committed over GHc70,000 into the registration as part of his social responsibility of giving back to his community.
Mr Dziwornu added that the people individually come to seek for support at the facility and he has realised that not all can come there hence the idea to register the 1,000 people for NHIS cards for free.
Mr Dziwornu added that many other of social responsibilities are still on the way that will benefit the people of Bole Traditional Area.
He thanked the Bolewura and his Chiefs and queen mothers for always being supportive to the Wuripe and Sons Royal Lodge.
The Secretary to the Bole Traditional Council Mr Abdulai Haruna Obey said the Bolewura was very happy when the CEO of the Wuripe and Sons Royal Lodge Mr. Adams Wuripe approached him and told him about the celebration of their 2nd anniversary.
He said the Bolewura suggested to the CEO of Wuripe & Sons Royal Lodge Mr Adams Wuripe to rather take the responsibility to register some of the less privileged in the Traditional Area for NHIS cards as part of its 2nd Anniversary to enable the people have easy access to health care instead of organising a party for people to just come and eat
He said the moment Bolewura brought that idea, Mr. Adams Wuripe agreed and today both Bole and Sawla Districts under the Bole Traditional Area has been given 500 people each to register for the health insurance.
Mr Abdulai also urged all Sons and daughters from the Traditional Area to emulate what the CEO of Wuripe & Sons Royal Lodge is doing to help develop Bole.
Haruna Abdulai added that Bole is one of the community that likes football and sports and for that matter, the traditional council is calling on all Sons and daughters to help build a stadium for Bole.
He said Bolewura has allocated a land for the construction of the stadium and waiting for all to come together build that for the people of Bole.
