Ghana based charitable organization, Lebanese Cultural Centre, LCC, has donated some medical equipment worth 90 thousand Ghana Cedis to the Child Cancer Department of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital as part of its humanitarian works.
The items included; Ultrasound machines, Glucometres, Air-conditioners, Cardiorespiratory monitors, pumps and Television sets.
The Spokesperson for the organization, Nadine Jaber speaking to our reporter during the donation said as parents who have sought medical attention from the facility realized that the Child Cancer Department lacks such equipment and have decided to assist them with the tools to save the lives of children who call at the department. She intimated that as Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, one important health facility in the country is expanding, the organization is ready to assist within its ambit to provide the required instruments to provide quality healthcare to patients.
Nadine Jaber added that, the gesture which is the first of its kind is not earmarked at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital alone, but will be extended to other health facilities across the country, stressing that they are currently focused on Korle-Bu.
Accepting the items, the CEO of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Dr. Daniel Asare lauded the group’s gesture and implored other groupings in and outside Ghana to emulate it. Dr. Asare reiterated the importance of individuals and groups support for such public institutions since their upkeep is not the preserve of only the central government.
He therefore promised the LCC to take good care of the equipment and asked for more of such.
