NGO Donates To District Hospital


The Pan African Development Foundation (PADF) a New York based development oriented NGO last Thursday presented assorted health items to the Hohoe District Hospital at a brief ceremony in the Volta Region.
The items include syringes, cutlasses, textbooks, calculators, cotton bags, and surgical sponges worth millions of cedis.

Dr Aubrey Heath-Retemyer, Executive Director of PADF head of a five-member delegation who made the donation said the Foundation's gesture was in responses to an appeal by Togbega Gabusu VI, Paramount Chief of Gbi Traditional Area in America.

He said PADF sought to build, develop and provide the networking channels necessary for African communities as well as Africans in the Diaspora to advance spiritually, physically and economically because, "we do not believe in the superiority of one race over the other".

Dr Edwin Kobla Danoo, Medical Superintendent of the Hospital thanked the Foundation for their benevolence and looked forward to forging a mutual collaboration with PADF to solve some of the hospital's problems.

Togbega Gabusu appealed to PADF to explore the possibility of wholly or partially assisting in the rehabilitation of the hospital, which, he said, had not been rehabilitated in the past 50 years.
