The donation forms part of the company’s contribution towards health care delivery in the community.

Chairman of the CYP, a youth group within the company that spearheads Corporate Social Responsibility activity, Mr. Emmanuel Ato Cobbah also commended the managers of the health centre for their efforts in the face of challenges.

Mrs. Agartha Ashitsoo Provencal, who is in charge of the Ear, Nose and Throat Unit at the centre, who received the items, thanked the company for their benevolence as it would go a long way to complement government support to the centre.
She appealed for support from the corporate world in addressing some of the challenges, including inadequate infrastructure for staff and patients that the facility is facing.
The Health Centre presently as a ten-bed capacity ward, which caters for both female, male and children who can only be detained and discharged at night at the centre.
She said due to the lack of infrastructure, the Health Centre’s problems are compounded by the pressure on their services by the large population of the town.
