A mother who lost her child after birth and detained at the hospital for not being able to settle her bills has received a welcome reprieve with the payment of her bills by cellular network providers, tiGO.
Officials of tiGO who are on a six-week long community outreach programme presented a 'humanitarian cheque' to the District Hospital in the mining town of Tarkwa in the Western Region to cover her expenses.
“Touching the life of one person at a time means a lot to us at tiGO, and making this woman's day reinforces our commitment to touch lives and give people new lifelines, just as our services offer,” says tiGO Marketing Officer, Bismark Odoom.
Other centres whose patients have since benefited from the humanitarian efforts of tiGO include the Maternity Ward of the Swedru District Hospital, Orphans Outreach Mission at Cape Coast and the AIDS Centre at Tema.
tiGO's community outreach programme has an entertainment format and aims at touching base with the network's subscribers and introduce new services.
The tiGO Experience Tour with Hip-life 'Supremo', Obrafuor and others have already gone through Tarkwa, Takoradi, Cape Coast, Swedru, Koforidua and Tema.
The concerts which run as part of the tour itself have been attracting large crowds which throng to the venues to sample and dance to the music and performances of Obrafour and his dancers, as well as Prince and Joe of TV3's Mentor II fame and the 2001 national dance champion Paa T.
