The donation is in fulfilment of the club’s pursuit of charity projects aimed at supporting the marginalized and vulnerable groups in society.
This donation will support the acquisition of electrolyte mineral mix, baby weighing scale, digital bathroom scale, metallic thermos scale, Daktarin oral gel, Amikacin & certazidime essential drugs for the Nephrology Unit of the Child Health Directorate.
Dr. Thomas Agyarko-Poku, Executive Director of the Otumfuo Charity Foundation (who represented Lady Juliet) at the short ceremony said the gesture was a contribution towards the provision of quality health care and to put some smiles on the faces of the patients with severe acute malnutrition.
He said a Charity Foundation is collaborating with APC to spearhead such health care supports among many others, to cater for the immediate health needs of patients whose parents for a reason may need such assistance.
Professor Sampson Antwi, Head of the Nephrology unit, who received the donation, thanked APC for the kind gesture.
He said medical personnel at the Department on regular basis have to donate out of their limited personal resources to enable some parents to purchase the prescribed medicines to commence treatment for their children.
He expressed gratitude to APC for also conceiving the idea of using its Advocacy & Research Unit to create awareness of the department’s challenges to corporate institutions and individuals; to be able to provide the needed assistance.
The ceremony was attended by unit staff, nutritionists, nurses and executives of the Little Steps Foubdation (LSF), including Dr. (Mrs.) Gyikua Plange and Dr. John Appiah.
