AGONA E: Swedru Hospital receives $8000 equipment
Membership of Obaasima,a Ghanaian club based in South Africa, in collaboration with MoneyGram in Ghana, has donated hospital equipment valued over $8,000 to the Agona Swedru Municipal Hospital.
The donation is to help boost operations at the hospital. The items include obstetric and gynaecological beds and 30 bed linens.
Presenting the equipments, a representative of Obaasima Club, Dr. Ivy Anafi, stated that the club was formed two years ago to provide a platform for socialization and networking among its members in Ghana and South Africa.
“It is the belief of Obaasima that life is essentially characterized by relationships. No human being can live a fulfilling life without relating to others, be it family, friends or strangers we meet daily on the streets. It is in line with this that the club is working closely with the Ghana High Commission in South Africa to reach the Ghanaian community living in the country and to organize national events to help bring the Ghanaian community together,” she added.
Dr. Anafi revealed the club also aims at promoting peace and harmony among members to promote total national development.
She said plans were underway for the club to pursue more charitable causes in the coming years.
A medical superintendent of the Swedru Municipal Hospital, Dr. Dzodzogbe Apetorgbor, who received the donation on behalf of the hospital, lauded the two organizations for their kind gesture.
He promised the hospital’s commitment to use the equipment for it intended purposes.
Present at the ceremony were Ato Baiden, a representative of MoneyGram International and Omar M. Nuredeen, Administrator of Swedru Municipal Hospital.
