Union Savings Donates To Children Hospital

CambellThe Union Savings and Loans Ltd. has donated assorted items worth GH¢10,000 to the Princess Marie-Louise Hospital (Children’s Hospital) in Accra on the occasion of the medical facility’s 88th anniversary.

The donation, made last Monday (Republic Day), formed part of the financial institution’s corporate social responsibility (CSR).

The items included 150 bed sheets, detergents, 10 cartons of V-Canula gauge, medical hand gloves and children’s toys, among others.

Alongside the donation, the company also collaborated with Zoomlion and Zoom Janitorial to do a clean-up exercise at the hospital, including painting, desilting drains and mowing lawns.

Andrew Manomey, the Human Resource Officer of the company, told the Times that the management and staff of the company decided to use the public holiday for the exercise.

He said as the only children’s facility in the country, the hospital catered for over 3,000 children daily.
Mr. Manomey said the company chose the hospital for the exercise because children were the country’s future, who needed to have a sickness-free growth and development.

Receiving the items, Father Andrew Campbell, Chairman of the hospital’s Board, said the facility was grateful for the gesture and wished other organisations to emulate it. Father Campbell identified irresponsible parenting as a major challenge facing the hospital, as some parents abandoned their children at the hospital.

He said it was time people took responsibility of their children to help lessen the burden on the hospital.
He appealed for support to secure a new ambulance for the hospital, as well as build new laboratory and pharmacy units for the hospital.
