HEALTH Care Foundation Project, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) in the United States, has presented a number of pieces of medical equipment to two health institutions in the Ahafo-Ano North District.
The institutions are the Tepa District Hospital and the Health Assistants Training School at Anyinasuso, near Tepa.
The items included anaesthesia circuit sets, oxygen masks and tubing, nebulizer supplies, chest tubes and drainage unit, surgical kits and medical books.
At the presentation ceremony, the District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr Addai Amankwaah, was confident that the equipment would go a long way to address some of the challenges facing the hospital.
He said the government’s quest to improve health delivery in the country would be achieved with the support of the private sector.
The DCE, therefore, commended the NGO for the support and expressed the hope that the beneficiary institutions would take good care of the equipment.
The Omanhene of Tepa, Nana Adusei Atwenewa Ampem, who facilitated the donation, stated that last year, the organisation made a similar donation to the Tepa Hospital, which boosted the activities of the hospital.
He was confident that the bond of friendship between the NGO and the Tepa Hospital would grow in the coming years.
According to Nana Ampem, another container of hospital equipment from the foundation was expected to arrive at the hospital before the end of the year.
The Medical Superintendent of the Tepa Hospital, Dr Isaac Akuamoah Boateng, praised the exceptional support from the organisation.
