Volta Youth for Development, a non-governmental organisation has donated medical equipment including four hospital beds and mattresses to South Tongu District Hospital, Sogakope in the Volta Region to help solve the “no bed syndrome” at the hospital.
Founder of Volta Youth for Development, Mr. Innocent Linford Tetteh while handing over the items on Friday, stated that he learnt about the challenges facing the hospital and had decided to contribute his widow’s might in addressing the problem.
Mr. Tetteh said the donation formed part of his social responsibility and that he was just giving back to society what society had given to him.
He stated that it had been his desire to move South Tongu and Volta forward hence, the formation of Volta Youth for Development to help push the agenda of people in the region especially in the area of health.
He pledged his continuous support to help hospitals in the region any time the need arises.
Speaking to Voltaonlinegh.com after receiving the donation on behalf of the hospital, Florence Gyaase Nketiah, South Tongu District Director of Health thanked the donors for the items.
Madam Nketiah called on all to help ensure a healthy society by supporting in any possible way in quality health care delivery.
According to her, there must be a cordial relationship between the society and health practitioners because without that health care delivery will not be effective.
She lamented about inadequate beds at the hospital especially the maternity ward and asked from corporate organisations and philanthropists to also come to their aid to help solve the challenges facing the hospital.
