Inesfly, Ahaban Foundation aids Ridge Hospital

Staff of Inesfly and members of Ahaban painting the walls of the wards.Inesfly Africa, producers of insecticide paints, and Ahaban Foundation, a youth group, have undertaken a collaborative project to rid the Ridge Hospital in Accra of mosquitoes

In line with the project, the members of Ahaban Foundation painted the wards and offices of the emergency centre with insecticide paints provided by Inesfly Africa.

 

It forms part of the company’s corporate social responsibility to make health and educational institutions more healthy and protected against insects.

 

For Ahaban Foundation, which has the mission of promoting the welfare, education and development of children, the project was to help in preventing malaria infections in health institutions.

 

The two institutions recently painted the Princes Marie Childrens Hospital as part of the ongoing project.

 

Michael Sjodin, Chief Executive Officer of Inesfly Africa, who led the painting exercise on Saturday, noted that the company was determined to help in eradicating malaria and other Vector-borne diseases.

 

He foresees a strong collaboration with stakeholder institutions in the fight against malaria, saying “it is our aim to effect change in the places that need it the most, and working together with other like-minded foundations goes a long way in helping institutions like schools and hospitals,” he said.

 

Apart from the health sector, he said the company continue to extend its assistance to schools, especially to eradicate malaria and bedbugs that have been troubling various schools.

 

Ms. Khadija Torbay, Project Director of Ahaban Foundation, lauded the partnership with Inesfy Africa, and expressed optimism that the partnership would yield more dividends.

 

She expressed the commitment of the Foundation, which currently has about 150 volunteers, in engaging in charity projects to support needy institutions and children.
