Babies Goodies

More than 20 babies delivered in health facilities within the Cape Coast Metropolis on the eve of Christmas and Christmas day have received goodies from the MTN Ghana Foundation.

The goodies, decorated and nicely wrapped, included diapers, baby towels, disinfectants, baby dresses, socks, bathing soaps, powder, nose masks, feeding bottles, wipes, baskets and flowers.

Delivering the packages to the new mothers, Mr Kennedy Ofosuhene, the Corporate Services Advisor of MTN, Ghana, explained that the gesture was to welcome the newborns to the world and the bright and wonderful yellow family.

The donation is being done across the 16 Regions of the country.

Mr Ofosuhene urged the mothers to treat their infants with love as the Almighty loved us by giving his only son to die for the sins of mankind.

“Christmas is the moment of love, let’s show love to one another,“ he added.

He said the donation formed part of the Foundation’s commitment to reaching customers and clients at all levels.

The Corporate Services Advisor pledged MTN Foundation’s unflinching support to the public to improve the socio-economic development of the country.

At the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital (CCTH) delivery suite, six babies, comprising four girls and two boys, were delivered through normal delivery.

Madam Gladys Otibu, who had her second child, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA), expressed gratitude to God and MTN for the kind gesture.

She praised the Almighty God for a safe delivery and was happy she gave birth on the eve of Christmas.

Osabarimba Kwesi Atta II, the Omanhen of Oguaa Traditional Area, who accompanied MTN to present the gifts, advised mothers to love, care and protect their children at all times.

He noted that the babies were the future of the country and the love initiated in them would help sustain the peace, unity and harmony among the populace.

At the Cape Coast Metropolitan Hospital, six babies were delivered with five through caesarean and one normal delivery.

Of the six, three were females and three males and there were found sleeping peacefully on the laps of their mothers when the GNA visited.

Mrs Agnes Appiah, who had just been delivered of her first child, praised God and said she felt fulfilled and thanked the nurses for taking good care of her.
