The Agoe Amarteifio Foundation, a non-governmental organisation (NGO), based in United Kingdom, has donated items and books valued at 8,000 pounds to three hospitals in the Greater Accra Region.
The hospitals are the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, the Ridge Hospital, and the Dangme Community Hospital.
The items include bed sheets, used clothes and boots to support healthcare delivery in those hospitals.
Mrs Suzie Amarteifio, the Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency after the donation, said it formed part of efforts to supplement the logistics of hospitals in Accra and beyond.
She said the NGO collaborated with community leaders to foster relationship and create an acceptable format to communicate important health messages to the people.
Mrs Amarteifio said: “We believed that collaboration on health issues and support are important ways to address problems affecting the people.”
Mr Ebsen Amarteifio, the Founder of the NGO, said the donation was to fulfill the NGO’s commitment towards quality healthcare for the citizenry.
Mrs Mercy Efua Otoo, the Chief Nursing Officer of Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, who received the items, congratulated the NGO for helping to promote quality healthcare delivery.
Dr Thomas Winson Anabah, the Medical Director of the Ridge Hospital, called on individuals and organisations to support communities to improve the healthcare delivery in the country.
Mr Ebenezer Amarteifio and Madam Comfort Agbetornyo, the Administrator and the Matron of the Dangme Community Hospital respectively, said the items would go a long way to ensure good care.
