Health Ko-Sa Beach Resort is strongly connected to the local village, Ampenyi. Most of our staff is from the village, or currently located there. We value the wellness of the locals. Up until 2019 the village was not in possession of a maternity ward, which meant that all pregnant women going into delivery had to go to either Komenda or Elmina to have their babies. Especially in the circumstance of a difficult delivery this often lead to problems. We felt the need to do something about this.

In 2019 we searched for solutions. Together with Ghana Health Service, the Chief and elders of Ampenyi, we discussed the possibilities. Eventually, it was decided that an empty school building would be transformed into a maternity ward. As Ko-Sa felt strongly about the need for this facility we decided to fully fund the transformation of the school building to a functional maternity ward. The maternity ward is not managed by Ko-Sa but was turned over to the inhabitants of Ampenyi in 2019. To this day the maternity ward is fully functional and in-use.
