Radio Link registers over 500 mothers to the NHIS as part of Mothers' Day celebration
General Manager for Radio Link Alex Boakye-Serema said registration of mothers to the National Health Insurance Scheme is the surest guarantee to access to health.
The celebration of Mother's Day saw a great boost in Tanoso in the Techiman South Constituency as Radio Link in collaboration with MIKAM Foundation and other stakeholders registered over 500 mothers to the National Health Insurance Scheme [NHIS].
The registration which was held at the Tanoso Roman Catholic Church premises saw a number of new entrants and renewals of the NHIS card.
Speaking at the start of the programme, the General Manager for Radio Link Alex Boakye-Serema said, the choice of Tanoso was to show appreciation to the populace for accepting the new breed which has brought dynamism in the broadcasting and radio business.
"The first outside broadcast of Radio Link was held in Tanoso and the support given was massive hence the need to appreciate them".
He added that the registration of mothers to the National Health Insurance Scheme is the surest guarantee to access to health.
"We choose the registration and renewal instead of shearing hampers because health is a prominent thing which all must take critical notice off. With a health insurance card, you can attend hospital" he emphasised.
The Techiman Municipal Health Insurance Manager Mr Benjamin Gyarko shared the need for one to register with the scheme.
He was optimistic that the people present at the programme all will get their cards replaced, renewed and also registered.
He advised that cards that have expired and new entrants are to wait for one-month duration before accessing free health delivery with the given cards.
Some mothers who had the privilege to benefit from Radio Link Mother's Day NHIS registration spoke to our reporter.
They expressed their utmost gratitude to Radio Link and its partners.
