Come Help Africa, a local subsidiary of Help Africa Incorporated, a US-based international NGO, has donated medical equipment to two health institutions in the Volta Region.
The equipment estimated at more than $15,000 included beds, wheel chairs, crutches, surgical equipment and assorted medications were presented to Hohoe Municipal Government Hospital and Adutor Clinic.
A statement, copied to GNA in Accra, said Reverend Kennedy Kwasi Odzafi, President and Founder of the NGO, presenting the equipment, said the gesture was to improve health care delivery at the two health institutions.
“During a visit to the country, I was touched by the plight of some patients at health facilities who due to the lack of beds received treatment on mattresses on bare floor.
“We need to ensure that, in this technological age, we eliminate practices where patients especially pregnant women were treated on the bare floor. Patients must not be allowed to die because they could not afford treatment.”
On Election 2012, Rev. Odzafi said: “Politicians should not see the Presidential and Parliamentary Elections as “a do or die” affair. We must acknowledge that after the voting only a candidate and a party would rule the country.
“Ghana is bigger than any individual or political party, therefore, politicians must always seek the interest of the citizenry and not their parochial interest”.
Rev. Odzafi said Ghana being respected for her hospitality among other African countries, Election 2012 was another opportunity for the people ensure peaceful, free and fair polls.
He urged Ghanaians, irrespective of their religious beliefs, ethnicity, age and sex to fast and pray for a peaceful electioneering and voting.
