The 'Ahomka' Foundation has donated some hospital equipment worth million of Ghana Cedis to the Kumawu Polyclinic in the Ashanti region to help improve health delivery in the area.
The items donated include Needles, syringes, gloves, test tubes, Gowns, Isolations Gown among others.
The 'Ahomka' Foundation is a non-governmental organisation whose primary focus is to foster the social welbeing of the Ghanaian people.
Presenting the items, a Deputy Minister of Trade and Industries and founder of the NGO, Mr Robert Ahomka-Lindsey, noted that the presentation was aimed at improving healthcare in the district.
He said the foundation had earlier made similar donations in other health facilities across the country. He noted that as a native of area, he owed it a duty to give back to help people.
Health Director of the area, Mr Justice Thomas, thanked the minister for the gesture saying that “the district is a developing district because it was recently created and therefore it’s heartwarming to see people coming to our aid”.
According to him, the items presented will help improve the quality of healthcare and infection prevention in the facility.
He urged others to emulate the move by the minister to help enhance healthcare in the area.
