This followed a recent donation by the club that saw two individ­uals (a stroke patient and another with intestinal disorder) being provided with various financial support totalling GH¢8,500.00 to undergo medical treatment.

At the event, the Obuasi Munic­ipal Health Director, Madam Yaa Manu, commended the club for its continuous support towards quality healthcare delivery in Obuasi and neighbouring districts.

She said the club had consis­tently come to the aid of health facilities with medical equipment and supplies in an era where some health facilities, especially within the rural communities, had report­ed lack of beds and other medical equipment.

The health director said the donations would go a long way to ease the stress and struggles of health workers in the beneficiary facilities, and also promote the health of indigenes of the com­munities.

She was full of praise to the club for also donating assorted food items worth about GH¢50,000.00 to Patmos Children’s Home in the Adansi Asokwa District.

Similarly, Ms Cecilia Osei Wusu, a caretaker of the home, lauded the club for what she described as a timely intervention that would enable the children to make merry during the Christmas season.

The president and founder of the club, Jacob Edmund-Acquah, said the club, since its establish­ment, had contributed to changing the lives of individuals and institu­tions with targeted donations.

He said feedback from the bene­ficiaries over the years, showed the impact the club had made since it was formed in July 2020.

The club had made several donations over the past two years including contributing to the cost of heart surgeries for eight individ­uals (six kids and two adults) with various heart/medical conditions, supporting community clinics with medical equipment and supplies, providing scholarships to brilliant but needy students, and setting up 23 people with trading businesses.

While praising MTN Foundation for supporting the club with GH¢ 20,000.00, he also appealed to other corporate bodies to con­sider making similar donations to support and promote the club’s activities.

For its support to healthcare delivery in Obuasi and surrounding communities within the Ashanti Region, the Obuasi Municipal Health Directorate, presented a citation to the Fifty Club.
