Amazing Grace Foundation, a Non- Governmental Organization (NGO), has donated medical equipment and supplies to the Kpone Maternity Home.
The items presented included 16 mattresses, nine pieces of delivery sheets, one box of urine container, 3 boxes of gloves, 1 box of ureteral catheter , and six packs of used cloths.
Speaking at a short event to hand over the items, Mrs Theodora Kotey, the founder of the organization, noted that, the organization started its operations in Ghana two years ago.
The organization was interested in humanitarian programmes hence the support to the Kpone Maternity unit with the medical items to save lives, he said.
Mrs. Kotey urged authorities of the facility to use the items for its intended purpose and maintain it.
She revealed that the organization had a prayer line where people from all walks of life could call and request for divine prayers especially in the United States of America.
Receiving the items on behalf of the health facility, Mrs Rita Patricia Frimpong Amenyo, Kpone-Katamanso Municipal Health Director, expressed gratitude to the foundation for responding to their distress call.
She stated that the items would help alleviate their challenges while calling on other benevolent organizations to come to the aid of the health facility.
Mr Solomon Tettey Appiah, Municipal Chief Executive for Kpone-Katamanso, noted that the Municipal Assembly alone could not solve all the problems within its jurisdiction and therefore needed the contributions of all stakeholders.
Mr. Appiah again noted that poor sanitation practices were affecting lives negatively and therefore warned that the Assembly would soon promulgate a law to punish residents who ignore good sanitation practices.
“You will be given brooms and hoes to sweep and weed for days if found littering, ” he warned.
He further added that the Assembly would embark on a massive sensitization campaign to ensure that every body within the Assembly’s jurisdiction adhered to its rules and regulations.
