Power Factor Limited, an engineering company has presented some items worth GHC10,000.00 to the Pantang Hospital to augment the hospital’s effort at providing quality health care to patients.
The items included 140 packs of toilet-rolls, ten boxes of examination gloves, 50 boxes of nose masks, ten mob buckets with mops, and sweeping brushes, boxes of tissue, dustbins, veronica buckets, rubbing alcohol, liquid soap, biscuits, soft drinks, and 312 bags of sachet water.
Mr Frank Kulor, Chief Executive Officer of Power Factor Limited who presented the items said it was in appreciation of the hospital’s works in both clinical and mental health service delivery to the community.
Mr Kulor said it was also in line with the company’s corporate social responsibility and the fulfillment of its annual target of affecting lives and contribute to the fight against COVID-19 and other medical and mental illnesses.
He said the Millennium Development Authority with sponsorship from the Millennium Challenge Account has tasked the company to change substandard cables, electric poles as well as inject some transformers into the system to improve the network within the district in which the hospital was located.
He added that the project was almost at the tail end therefore they found it important to give back to the community for cooperating with them well.
Madam Gloria Lasisi, Senior Nursing Officer, Pantang Hospital thanked the company for thinking about the clients and donating the items to boost care.
Madam Lasisi said the hospital was overburdened, therefore such donations go a long way to alleviate their burden.
Mr Collins Kesse, Deputy Director in charge of Administration, Pantang Hospital, on his part appealed to other organisation, NGOs, philanthropists, and individuals to come to their aid to replace the roofing of the hospital.
He said the roof leaked badly affecting the effective discharge of their services as a tertiary psychiatric hospital as some wards had to be abandoned making it difficult to admit patients into it.
