Rotaract gives to de Porres Hospital, Nzulezu community

The Rotaract Club of Labone in partnership with its sponsoring Rotary Club of Accra-Labone has donated a bale containing 45 pieces of mosquito nets to the St. Martin de Porres Hospital.

The donation took place at the premises of the hospital in Eikwe in the Western region during the weekend.

Donating the items to the hospital, President of the Rotaract Club of Labone Mr. Stephen Appiah said the donation forms part of the commitment of the club to assist the hospital since it was the only hospital that provides health care to the people of Eikwe.

He said the donation,“forms part of our Rotary year theme of building communities and bridging continents.”

Receiving the donation on behalf of the hospital, the medical officer Dr Patrick Yamoah thanked the club and expressed the desire to see a continuation of the assistance.

Dr Yamoah, however highlighted some of the challenges facing the hospital, particularly the difficulty involved in accessing drugs relatively low in price to support the local people’s scanty budgets. He therefore  urged corporate bodies to assist the hospital in that direction.

The club also donated some items to the Nzulezu community.

The items include 100 Rotaract branded exercise books, 15 sets of  mosquito nets and five sacks of used clothing.

The Odikro of the community who spoke on behalf of the chief, King Teklika, said the community is grateful for the donation.
