The National Service Personnel Association of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (NASPA-GPHA) has donated undisclosed amount of money in support of a seventeen-year- old hole-in-heart patient, Christopher Boateng, to undergo surgery.
Television Africa, an Accra based Television station, is currently running an advert on the plight of Christopher, soliciting donations for the young man who doctors say needs about GHc 14,000 before his condition will be restored.
Presenting the cash on behalf of NASPA-GPHA, the president, Mr. Emmanuel Quarcoo, disclosed that the Association was motivated by the desire to help Christopher undergo surgery after watching the advert on TV Africa. According to Mr. Quarcoo, the donation forms part of the Association's week celebrations which began on Monday July 17.
Mr. Nii Tettey Ablorh, the News Coordinator for TV Africa, who received the donation on behalf of Christopher, thanked the Association for the kind gesture, adding that it was timely. He promised that the donation will be used for the intended purpose.
Mr. Ablorh also used the opportunity to call on all benevolent organisations, civil societies and the general public to come forth with their donations to save the life of the young man.
