In a heartfelt gesture of giving back to society, Volta Serene Hotel, a subsidiary of the First Sky Group, has extended early Christmas love to the Ho Teaching Hospital through a significant donation of essential hospital items.
The management and staff of the only 4-star hotel in the Volta region presented dozens of mattresses, toiletries, disinfectants, bottled water, and assorted canned drinks on Wednesday to support the operations of the referral facility. Additionally, the hotel took the initiative to repaint the Outpatient Department (OPD) unit of the hospital, creating a more welcoming environment for individuals seeking medical attention.
Mr. Steve Derrick Armah, the General Manager of Volta Serene, shared that the generous gesture, valued in excess of GHc200,000.00, was part of the company’s corporate social initiatives aimed at supporting healthcare delivery in the region.
He emphasised the hotel’s close relationship with the hospital, citing a recent collaboration where they hosted a dedicated team of 30 highly skilled medical volunteers from RESTORE Worldwide, Inc. These volunteers conducted reconstructive surgery on 132 individuals at the Teaching Hospital over 14 days, with the hotel providing accommodation and meals for the entire team.
Mr. George Kofi Tetteh, the Director of Administration of the hospital, received the items on behalf of the hospital management and commended Volta Serene for the generous donation. He described it as a timely intervention that will significantly support their preparations for the anticipated increase in cases during the yuletide season.
Expressing gratitude, he assured the hotel management that the donated items would be put to good use. Mr. Tetteh also took the opportunity to appeal to the hotel’s parent company, the First Sky Group, to consider replicating its dialysis support fund in the hospital to cater to patients in need of dialysis in the region.
Following the donation, the hotel management and staff were given a tour of the newly revitalized OPD unit, where a plaque was unveiled in their honour, marking a lasting acknowledgment of their impactful contribution to the hospital.
