Asante Akyem is a village about 3KM off the Sureso-Samreboi road and also about 22KM from Samreboi, in the Wassa Amenfi West Municipal, Western Region, Ghana.

The village and its surrounding communities have no electricity, no treated water, no healthcare facility, deplorable school structure, deplorable roads, etc, compelling Management of Samartex to initiate a monthly medical outreach, which commenced on February 24, 2021.
