Ankaful Psychiatric threatens to release inmates over lack of funds

The Ankaful Psychiatric hospital in the Central Region has threatened to release all inmates onto the streets due to lack funds for their upkeep.

According to authorities, the hospital was owing various suppliers of food and other items to the tune of over GHC3 million.

The Acting Clinical Coordinator of the hospital, Dr Emefa Dzede made this known when she received a donation on behalf of the hospital from a philantropist at the weekend.

She said: “Even the little money that they’ve promised to give us, we’ve not even gotten our hands on it yet, so we are having difficulty, we owe suppliers for a backlog of years and they are not willing to supply us again”

She added that they had to struggle to get money to provide meals for the inmates recently, “Looking in the near future, maybe we will have to let all the patients go home because we can’t afford to feed them, we can’t afford to care of them”.
