The Youth Wing of the Church of Christ, Buade Nungua branch, has donated items worth GH¢1,500 to the Christian Medical Centre in Nungua, to support the health care facility for patients.
The donation, which formed part of activities marking the 12th week celebration of the youth group, include bottled water, antiseptics, toiletries, milk and Milo.
The Christian group also undertook a clean-up exercise to improve sanitation at the health facility.
President of the group, Mr. Stephen Cwesi Morgan, presenting the items to the officials of the health facility, said it formed part of their corporate social responsibility.
He said in fulfillment of Christ’s teaching of caring and sharing, the group decided to extend a hand of help to the facility.
Mr Morgan said: “Christ did not just preach the word, but he entreated his followers to share and care for the sick, the hungry, and the needy.”
He appealed to other organisations and individuals to emulate the gesture of the Christian group, saying “some of us have enough and can extend a hand of help to the next person who needs our help”.
Mrs. Vida Anim, the Nursing Officer at the facility, thanked the group for the gesture, which he said, would go a long way to assist the patients.
“The food items would go a long way to help us in feeding our patients and the antiseptics would help us in keeping the hospital a germ-free one,” she said.
Mrs. Anim said the donation was so critical because some families abandoned their sick relatives at the facility, and caring for them was a challenge.
