The regional chairman of the association, Dr E. Agurgo Balfour, stated that the association also donated computers to some deprived second cycle institutions, regional library and community centres in the region to support teaching and learning.

He mentioned that the group also donated three ultramodern incubators on behalf of the BONABOT-UK branch to the Upper East Regional Hospital to give preterm babies in the region a better chance to survive after birth.

Dr Agurgo stressed that BONABOTO still remained focused and committed to the advancement of the cause of development of the region and appealed to all members to help contribute to achieve such positive dream.

BONABOTO is a civil society organisation committed to advocacy for development of the Frafra area in particular and the Upper East Region in general.
