She was in the country to assess the needs of some institutions and communities for a support by the Church, which offers humanitarian services to the needy and deprived.

Nana Efua Ansaadze was in Mankessim in response to an appeal by Nana Araba Otuaa II, Queen mother of the Mankessim Traditional Area to the Church for help in equipping the hospital in the town and establishing a computer training school.

Nana Ansaadze pledged to do her best to help the people to develop the village and promised to establish a day-care centre for the people. Nana Esuon VI, Chief of the village appealed to the government to step down the high-tension electricity cables, which passed through the village to enable the people to get connected to the national grid.
