Over 5,000 Pounds Sterling worth of orthopaedic equipment has been donated to the St Joseph hospital to support the work of the hospital.
The equipment presented to the Hospital included 15 wheelchairs, 10 commandos, 10 crutches and pieces of walking sticks.
Presenting the items to the Hospital, Mr Kennedy Owusu Nyarko, President of the Effiduase Association in London, said he was hopeful the equipment would help to relieve some stress on the hospital.
He said the Association aimed at supporting the welfare of its members and promote development in their community back home in Ghana.
Mr Nyarko said the donation of the equipment to the hospital formed part of their contribution to the development of their community.
He said the donation was the first that the Association had made and expressed the desire of the Association to donate more to other health facilities in the area.
The Director of Nursing at the St Joseph Hospital, Mrs Beatrice Addei Kwaming who received the items on behalf of the hospital, thanked the Association for the kind gesture extended to the facility.
She said the equipment was going to help the hospital, since they needed the wheel chairs to carry their patients from one ward to the other.
Mrs Kwaning said on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays when they undertook orthopaedic services, due to the limited number of wheel chairs, it became a challenge to move patients round to access their services.
The Chief of Effiduase and the Nifahene of the New Juaben Traditional Area, Nana Okoawia Dwumoh Baebu II, thank the Effiduase citizens in the United Kingdom for their contribution to the development of Efffiduase.
He urged them to strive hard to bring more development into the community and urged other citizens in the diaspora to emulate the gesture.
