The Egyptian Government has donated medical equipment worth GH¢42,550 to the Alayar Clinic and Maternity Home in Accra.
The medical equipment includes an ultra sound machine, autoclave, microscope, and colorimeter and haematology kits.
The donation was made through the Egyptian Fund for Technical Co-operation in Africa. The clinic was established by the Islamic Council for Development and Humanitarian Services (ICODEHS)
The Egyptian Ambassador to Ghana, Mr Seif Allah Nosseir, presented the cheque for GH¢42,550 to the Executive Chairman of the ICODEHS, Sheikh Mustapha Ibraham, at a short ceremony last Wednesday.
Mr Nossier said that the donation is to support the improvement of healthcare service delivery in the maternity home.
He said Egypt and Ghana have enjoyed good relations for years, and that Ghana's first President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah, was married to an Egyptian, Fathia.
Mr Nossier added that Egypt offered support to Ghana in the area of education, economy and agriculture, and reiterated the country's commitment to continue to support Ghana.
Dr Samir Nakhla, an Egyptian doctor working at the clinic, said that the medical equipment will go a long way in improving healthcare service delivery at the clinic.
