The Accra East Region of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has donated GH¢7,000.00 worth 50-inch UHD Series 8 Smart Television (TV) Set to the Children’s Ward of the Tetteh Quarshie Memorial Hospital.
The presentation which was made at the hospital in Akwapim-Mampong on Monday forms part of ECG’s Corporate Social Responsibility plan to give back to society.
Presenting the TV set to the Children’s Ward, the Human Resources Manager of Accra East Region of ECG, Mr Paul A. Okine, explained that the children’s ward was chosen for the donation to provide some sort of entertainment for children receiving treatment, and also help provide some comfort to mothers taking care of their sick children at the ward.
“We want the children here to feel happy as they receive treatment and we believe that this will make them recover soon from their illness,” he stated
According to Mr Okine, management of the Accra East Region of ECG visited the hospital last month and realised that there was no source of entertainment for children on admission and decided to support the hospital with a TV set.
“We were touched by the scene we saw the last time we visited the hospital and so as part of our social responsibility, we felt we should donate something small to help facilitate the healing of children on admission,” he added.
The Head of Administration, Mr Maxwell Larbi received the TV on behalf of the hospital and expressed their appreciation to ECG for the donation.
Mr Larbi commended ECG Accra East for its effort in reaching out to its customers to ensure customer satisfaction.
He called on other corporate institutions to show such gestures to the hospital.
