Mr Gene A. Cretz, United States Ambassador, has expressed his country’s commitment to facilitate the socio-economic development of Ghana.

He said America has a special role to play across the world in the area of development and Ghana would have its fair share.

Mr Cretz was speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) during the swearing-in ceremony of US Health Volunteers organised by Ghana Peace Corps at Addo-Nkwanta in the East Akyem Municipality of Eastern Region on Friday.

He said: “The health volunteers are going to be scattered in all the regions in Ghana, especially the rural areas, to offer vital health assistance and health development in those areas.”

Mr Simon Peter Asirifi, Municipal Chief Executive, asked the health volunteers to be role models to the youth and live above reproach.

He also implored them to bring their expertise to bear in the localities they would be posted to.

“Let it be that at the end of your two -year interaction with the people, your satisfaction will be that you have imparted your skills to the people as well as knowledge and attitudes that will make them self-reliant and better than you came to meet them,” he stressed.
