MTN Ghana Foundation fetes Christmas babies at Korle-Bu
Officials of MTN Ghana Foundation, on Sunday presented hampers to mothers who gave birth on Christmas Day (December 25), at the second floor of the Korle-Bu Maternity Block.
The officials, together with members of MTN Ghana Staff Volunteer Association and Management of the corporate entity, interacted with the mothers’ and shared goodwill messages and wishes of the season.
Mr Robert Kuzoe, Acting Executive Director of the Foundation described the season as a period for giving and building strong relationship with people.
“The Foundation could not have chosen a better time than Christmas to give and bring happiness to the mothers and babies on such a special day,” he said.
“We are happy to see that the lives of our mothers and babies as well as pregnant women who need antenatal and post natal care have been touched positively and are receiving quality care… as a result of the rehabilitation.”
Mr Kuzoe said the second floor of the hospital held a special place for the MTN Ghana Foundation, following a major rehabilitation exercise the foundation undertook on the floor shortly after the inauguration of the body in 2007.
The project was aimed at facilitating the provision of quality health care for mothers who use the facility. The Foundation oversees the social responsibilities of MTN Ghana, a telecommunication service provider, with the aim of improving the quality of people’s lives through appropriate and sustainable social interventions in communities where the company operates.
The Foundation currently operates in Ghana, Afghanistan, Benin, Congo-Brazzaville, Cote d Ivoire, Guinea Bissau, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Uganda and Yemen.
In Ghana, the foundation is implementing eight projects valued at GH¢487,000.00 in the health and education sectors in deprived communities.
