Two institutions yesterday donated assorted items to the 37military hospital to help improve on their health delivery to Ghanaians.

The institutions are Indian High Commission in Ghana and Lysaro 3L Company, a printing and general goods supply company.

The Indian High Commission donated a polytank and assorted medications to the Mahatma Ghandi Maternity Hall while Lysaro 3L donated 30 beds, detergents and toiletries.

Presenting the items, the High Commissioner of India to Ghana, Mr Birender Singh Yadav, said the exercise formed part of activities to mark the 150th birthday celebration of Indian activist who was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule, Mahatma Gandhi

He said the exercise was also to fulfil the corporate social responsibility of the commission and also to support the day to day running of the facility.

Mr Yadav said the medicines were donations received from four Ghanaian owned pharmaceuticals companies namely, Eskay therapeutics, Supra Pharma, Pharmanova  and  M&G pharmaceuticals limited.

“The gesture from these was to support the birthday celebration of our first leader and his ideals,” he added.

The High Commissioner said the High Commission would embark on an educational drive among some schools in the country to propagate the message speaking the truth at all times and also using a non violent  approach in tackling misunderstandings.

Mr Yadav said Mr Gandhi employed a non violent disobedient approach in his fight against the British.

The Chief Executive Officer of Lysaro 3L, Mrs  Cynthia  Adjei, said the  donation was borne out of  the ‘no bed  syndrome’ that confronted  some hospitals in the  country  earlier this year of which she was a victim.

“I then decided to support the hospital to bridge the gap and also share what I have with some selected hospitals this year,” she explained.

The  commander at the 37 Military hospital, Brigadier  General  Michael  Akwasi Yeboah- Agyapong  said water  was an essential commodity in  running the hospital hence the polytank would  serve as a  means of storing  water  especially during periods of water  shortage.

He said the medicines would help in administering effective healthcare to patients at the hospitals.

The commander said the donation of the beds were timely as it would help augment that of the hospital.

Brig. Gen. Yeboah-Agyapong appealed to various companies and High Commissions in the country to support the facility to give its best to Ghanaians.
