First Lady, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo, on Friday, July 27, 2018 donated a set of medical equipment ranging from hospital beds to Complete Delivery Systems to the Krachi West Government Hospital in the Volta Region.
The presentation was done by Mrs. Akosua Newman of the Rebecca Foundation, and she was supported by the Deputy Volta Regional Minister, Maxwell Blagodzi and District Chief Executive for Krachi-West, Osei-Nti Douglas.
The equipment included three Complete Delivery Systems, 25 boxes of advance wound dressing material, five hospital beds, 16 boxes of dressing charge irrigation trays, patient medical tables and 25 boxes cardinal health hydrocolloid dressing.
It also included surgery drain bags, an Instant Warmer System, an Anesthesia Super Circuit Pack, Eye Protection packs, Primary IV Sets, Secondary IV Sets, IV Start Kits and differing sizes of Vicryl Sets etc.
Presenting the items, Mrs. Newman underscored the importance of technology to make healthcare more accessible, cheaper and easier.
She said, “just as access to healthcare continues to remain fragile, it’s especially important to explore the ways that technology can get better healthcare to more people”.
She was confident that, the items donated will add-up to on-going efforts that have in recent times culminated in an increase in better healthcare delivery, and hoped that it will change the balance of forces that has hitherto kept this key sector in penury.”
Medical Superintendent, who received the items on behalf of the Krachi West District Hospital Dr Hilarius Abiwu, was grateful for the immensely beneficial gesture and called for more of such interventions.
