Receiving the items, the Acting Head of Department for the children’s ward at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Dr. Taiba Jibril Afaa, said the donation was timely and will significantly enhance the hospital’s capacity to provide quality healthcare to the children under their care.

“We want to express our sincere thanks to Newmont for their generous support during this time of oxygen shortage. The resources provided will be put to good use, and we look forward to building a strong relationship with Newmont in future. Thank you for your help.” She said.

On his part, the Head of Safety and Sustainability at Newmont’s business unit in Africa, Ashley Armarego stated the donation was a result of a cross-functional collaboration and he is happy that the company continues to make a difference in the lives of people through their operations.  

“I am proud of the team’s dedication to the well-being of the communities in which we operate. Safety is our number one priority in Newmont and at the core of our operations and it is on the back of this, that we extend this value beyond our walls into our host communities. Supporting the Korle-bu Teaching Hospital’s Children Ward is one of the many things that gives Newmont’s purpose its essence’’.  Ashley said.
