Mampong-Akuapem (E/R),
June 28, GNA – A philanthropist who doubles as a legal consultant and a pastor,
Mr Kwabena Ankamah has called for support for the deprived in society.     

Mr Kwabena Ankamah
made the call when the Kwabena Ankamah Family Foundation presented 120
bedsheets and 40 baby shawls to the Tetteh Quarshie Memorial Hospital maternity
ward at Mampong-Akuapem.

The items were to help
the Hospital to take care of its patients especially those at the maternity
ward and the newly born babies.

The donation, he said,
was part of efforts to create awareness and motivate others to support the
Hospital.

He explained that,
government alone could not honour all the demands of society, hence the need
for individuals and benevolent organizations to come on board and give the
needed support to society.

A Midwife at Tetteh
Quarshie Memorial Hospital, Ms Asare Yeboah said the items will go a long way
to support patients, especially pregnant mothers and their babies, since the
Hospital did not have adequate bed-sheets and the ones available were worn-out.

She said the Maternity
Unit got not less than 12 admissions in a day and on busy days undertook about
eight deliveries and four caesarean operations.

She appealed to NGO’s,
organisations and well-meaning Ghanaians to come and support the Tetteh Quarshie
Memorial Hospital.

The Administrator of
the Hospital, Mr Francis Luguniah thanked the Ankamah Family Foundation for
their support and their initiative to improve health care delivery.

He said without the
support from corporate organisations, philanthropists and other well-meaning
persons quality healthcare delivery could be a challenge, because health care
was expensive and government alone could not afford.
