Inesfly Africa, the only producer of insecticide paints in Africa, in collaboration of Ahaban Foundation, has advanced its support to the Princess Marie-Louise Children’s Hospital in Accra.
As part of the support package, wards on the second floor of the hospital, were treated with Inesfly paints and sprays to wade off mosquitoes and other insects from the wards.
It forms part of the company’s corporate social responsibility to make health and educational institutions more healthy and protected against insects.
The company’s intervention was implemented through collaboration with Ahaban Foundation, a non-governmental organisation interested in the promotion of the welfare, education and development of children.
Michael Sjodin, Chief Executive Officer of Inesfly Africa, at the beginning of the painting exercise, noted that the company was determined to help in eradicating malaria and other Vector-borne diseases.
“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 the children’s hospital,” he said.
Apart from the health sector, he said the company continues to extend its assistance to schools, especially to eradicate malaria and bedbugs that have been troubling various schools.
Lawrence Adams, Founder of Ahaban Foundation, commended Inesfy Africa for swiftly responding to the foundation’s request for help for the hospital, and expressed optimism that the partnership would yield more dividends.
Mrs Doris Antwi, Principal Nursing Officer at the hospital, for her part, thanked the two donors for the assistance, saying it would go a long way in providing a healthy environment for patients and staff.
