MTN-Ghana has shared the joy of the Christmas season with babies born on December 25 and their mothers at the Eastern Regional Hospital.

December 25 is a day celebrated to mark the birth of Jesus Christ while Boxing Day is celebrated after Christmas day. Both days are designated as public holidays in Ghana during which celebrants exchange gifts.

Mr Ebenezer Okaikoi-Tetteh, Eastern Regional Lead, MTN with other officials of the telecommunication giant, donated some items, including baby hampers, towels, detergents, wipes and masks to mothers of 12 babies born on 25 December 2021 at the Regional Hospital.

The Baby Hamper distribution on Christmas Day is an initiative introduced in 2011 by the MTN Foundation.

The Baby Hamper distribution is among the objectives of the Foundation that seeks to drive the Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) initiative in the country.

MTN is the provider of mobile telecommunications services across the African continent.

“Amidst COVID-19, MTN counts it important to reach out to our lovely babies born on Christmas day and also wish all mothers, customers and stakeholders a Merry Christmas,” Mr Okaikoi-Tetteh said.

Ms Joana York Amoah, Deputy In-charge of Postnatal Ward, Eastern Regional Hospital, Koforidua, was grateful for the gift and urged expectant mothers to visit the hospitals for antenatal care.

She said antenatal services formed part of recommendations for helping to manage a healthy lifestyle and provision of medical information.

She said routine antenatal care would help prevent potential health problems throughout pregnancy as well as reduce miscarriage and birth defects.

She urged all and sundry to go by sanitising their hands and wearing of nose masks, among others, to avoid the spread of Coronavirus.
