Put Up Schools, Boreholes And Hospitals To Support The Government – Martha Ankomah Tells Companies



Ghanaian Actress, Martha Ankomah says she is anguished by the the expansion of businesses and increasing numbers of businessmen and companies investing in Real Estate, particularly high-end apartments that the average Ghanaian cannot afford.

Speaking in an interview with GhanaWeb, she said such businessmen and companies should rather focus on investing in social sectors such as hospitals, boreholes and schools which tends to benefit the masses and also humanity.


“I see people constructing mega buildings and apartments all over the place and you don’t even see people living in them. At least those monies could have been used to construct schools, hospitals and boreholes in the villages to support the work of the government,” she noted.

Martha added,

“ I run an NGO, Martha Ankomah Foundation which focuses on child care support, health awareness projects, community development projects, and livelihood empowerment hence I visit a lot of villages and deprived areas to carry out these programs but it’s so sad to reveal that most of these businessmen and companies also operate there but hardly will they support the communities or regions with any developmental projects”. “ It makes me sad and you could easily tell that if such Ghanaian individual investors and companies had supported the government by constructing hospitals, schools and boreholes in their various communities, we would have had enough facilities[hospitals] to assist the government’s quest to fight the corona virus,” she reiterated.

She also talked about the Movie industry.
