This was when the Peorga Women’s Health Foundation, a non-profit organisation, donated drugs and equipment to the hospital.

The drugs and medical equipment, valued at GH¢5,761, were donated by the Peorga Women’s Health Foundation to the Polyclinic to help cater for patients from the Ledzokuku-Krowor Municipality. They included an oxygen cylinder and its accessories and assorted drugs.

The donation, which formed part of the Foundation’s corporate social responsibility, was to complement government’s efforts to enhance health service delivery to the people.

Madam Quaye-Kumah, herself a retired midwife, said the donation was made possible through the support of a number of philanthropic organisations including Danadams, Unichem and Letap Pharmaceuticals.

Other supporting groups were Shalina, M and G Pharmaceuticals and Nungua Citizens of New Jersey in the USA.

The occasion was witnessed by some queenmothers of the Ga Traditional Area as well as  members of the community.

The occasion, which coincided with the celebration of the International Day for Midwives, was also used to screen the residents of blood pressure and weight levels.

Madam Quaye-Kumah said a similar exercise was organised by the foundation at Prampram which benefitted more than a 100 people.

Receiving the items, the administrator of Lekma Polyclinic, Madam Emefa Donyo, thanked the foundation for the gesture and appealed to other philanthropic organisations to emulate it.
