The Rotary Club of Winneba, as part of its social contributions to the society, has donated a number of Rotary branded bed sheets and pillow cases to the Winneba Government Hospital Maternity Ward.
Mr Justice Cudjoe, the President of the Club, who presented the items, said the donation forms part of serving communities in which they are located so as to impact the lives of the citizenry.
“This is why we have to conduct a survey at the facility to donate such items to help in addressing some of the challenges that confront the staff as they provide quality health care to the people,” he said.
Mr Cudjoe said since the formation of the club some months ago, they had organised health screening for people in Walabeba, a community in the Effutu Municipality, and donated some medicine to them.
He stated that plans were far advanced to raise funds to procure beds and other medical items for the hospital, which include adopting some of the wards. Dr Douglas Amponsah, the Medical Officer of the Hospital, who received the items, commended Rotary Club for the kind gesture and gave the assurance that the items would be used for the intended purpose.
He appealed to other organisations and philanthropists to come to the aid of the Hospital to help perform their duties without hindrance.
