The Rotary Club of Labone, Accra, has donated items to the Children's Ward of the Nsawam General Hospital and the Babies' Unit of the House of Refuge of Street Aid for Girls (RSAG) at Abofu, Achimota.

The club donated 50 pieces of Insecticide Treated Nets (ITNs), a TV set, mattresses and bed sheets to the Nsawam Hospital as well as gifts to each child on admission.
It also paid the discharge fee of ยข395,800 on behalf of a 15-month-old baby who was still at the ward due to the parents inability to settle the bill.

At the House of Refuge of Street Aid for Girls, the Club presented 50 pieces of ITNs.
The Rotary Club delegation was led by its president, Nadine Amuah, and Assistant Governor, Ralph Mills-Tettey.

Julius B. Kuusaalesuo, Administrator at the Nsawam General Hospital received the donations at Nsawam, whilst Mrs. Vida A. Amoako, Director of Street Girls Aid, received the donations at Abofu.
Mr. Kuusaalesuo thanked the club for the assistance and proposed that the Rotarians adopt the Children's Ward of the hospital.

Rotary Club of Accra's association with the RSAG began earlier this year when the club, through a matching grant, co-operated with the Rotary Club of Ojai, California, USA, to present a $40,000 assistance package to RSAG.

That package was made up of beds, other furniture and equipment for vocational training in skills such as sewing, textile design, cookery and hairdressing.
