Rotary Club of Ho Donates to the Ho Teaching Hospital
The Rotary Club of Ho donated a twenty one thousand Ghana Cedis (GHC 21,000.00) Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Machine to the Premature Baby Unit of the Ho Teaching Hospital here in Ho on the 11th August, 2020.
The donation was the Club’s Flagship Project for 2019/2020 Rotary year which needed to be completed as a result of the club’s resolve to complete all unfinished projects of the previous Administration.
The equipment was received on behalf of the hospital by Dr. Lord Mensah, a Paediatrician and the Director of Medical Affairs at the Ho Teaching Hospital.
The current President, Rotarian Vivian Adoboe-Tefe known in her traditional life as Mama Afiakumah II together with the IPP Kartey Kumoji presented the equipment on behalf of the Club.
Rotarian Tefe bemoaned the Hospital management to cultivate the culture of maintenance in order for the equipment to serve its intended purpose. She added that sustainability of the equipment was key hence the Club will occasionally come back to check on how the equipment is put into good use.
Dr. Mensah thanked the Rotary Club of Ho for collaborating with the Hospital all these years. He assured the public that they will put the equipment into good use and work harder to continue to save the lives of the vulnerable babies.
