Ghana Association of Doctors in Residency (GADOR) presents Items to Ridge Hospital

The Ghana Association of Doctors in Residency (GADOR) has presented several boxes of Personal Protective Equipment and other items to the staff of Ridge Hospital as part of the efforts of the Association, OccupyGhana and IT Consortium Ltd to raise funds and items, to provide that support.

Presenting the items to the Ridge Hospital CEO, the Immediate Past President GADOR, Dr.Solomon Nii-Kotey Kotey, explained that the items were being donated to support the Ridge Hospital as the foremost designated health facility in the management of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ghana.

He explained that the items were sourced by GADOR through efforts involving the OccupyGhana Movement and IT Consortium, marking the first of many more donation efforts to hospitals and clinics all over the country to aid in their preparedness to face the impending increase in a number of COVID19 cases to be reported in the country. The donated items consisted of hand sanitizers, disposable gowns, N95 masks, and protective coveralls.

Witnessing the event, the Advisor to the President of Ghana on Health, Dr.Anthony Nsiah-Asare, described it as an impressive endeavour for the Residents’ Association to spearhead such a move, especially as a part of the HCWs at the frontline in the management of the developing pandemic in Ghana.

He reiterated the President’s pledge to donate his next 3 months’ salary and added the commitment of his staffers, aides, and advisors also to similarly pledge half of their salaries for the next 3 months to the COVID-19 set up under the chairmanship of the former Chief Justice of Ghana, Ms.Sophia Akuffo.

He commended the industriousness of Ghanaians in rising to the challenge, citing the commendable efforts of some alcoholic beverage companies to produce much-needed alcohol-based hand sanitizers at this time.

He advised that GADOR and other donors spent time also concentrating efforts on smaller health facilities as they would also need support as first points of call in the communities.

He added that the restriction of movement in the Greater Accra and Greater Kumasi areas is aimed at containing people, performing adequate contact tracing, and testing those who need to be tested. To this end, other centres for testing nationwide are expected to come fully online soon.

He took the opportunity to explain that any Ghanaians with a history of contact would have to undergo testing, followed by appropriate management for both those who test negative and positive. Depending on the severity of the disease, those positive could be managed at home or in any of the treatment centres available.

He further explained that any complaints as to why the recovery rate seemed to be low could also be linked to the fact that it has not been a full 14 days since the moment the first cases were identified and isolated but the expectation is that within the next couple of days, more patients will test negative and be declared fully recovered as per laid down protocols.

He took the opportunity to encourage doctors to spread the word about COVID-19 on the airwaves in order to educate Ghanaians further on it, adding that an upsurge in numbers of infected people is expected soon due to with greater numbers of people to be tested henceforth.

He emphatically stated that the government would not shield any person testing positive and that official updates would be communicated via the GHS website, in tandem with WHO figures. He then called on all Ghanaians to support the police and security services to observe regulations of the lockdown/limited movement by not moving around unless absolutely necessary.

He ended by expressing gratitude for the donation once more and promised to convey good tidings of the efforts spearheaded by GADOR (backed by Occupy Ghana and IT Consortium) to the President.

Dr Srofenyo, the Medical Director, summed it all up by expressing gratitude for the donation to the Hospital

How To Surprise🎁 Your Girlfriend👩‍👧On Her Birthday🎂

In fact, some of the best gifts are ones that come from the heart rather than being expensive or elaborate. Try one of these ideas for making your girlfriend feel special on her birthday:

Do something she has wanted to do for a long time.

Surprise your girlfriend on her birthday by doing something she has wanted to do for a long time.

Here are some ideas:

  • Go for a morning jog with her at the park.
  • Volunteer at the animal shelter together, cleaning cages and feeding dogs or cats. If you have kids, you could also bring them along when they're old enough to help out as well! This will be a great bonding experience for everyone involved!
  • Take her on an adventure in nature like hiking up a mountain or exploring caves nearby (if there are any). It's important that you plan ahead so she doesn't get hurt while trying these activities though! Also, make sure they aren't too strenuous since women tend to not have as much energy as men do even if they look good doing it too 😉

Go somewhere she has always wanted to go.

As a rule of thumb, we suggest that you take your girlfriend somewhere she has always wanted to go, but never had the time. This can be anything from a trip to the beach or concert to an amusement park or weekend getaway at a fancy hotel. The point is for you both to enjoy yourselves and have fun together!

If you want to do something really special for your lady love on her next birthday, book tickets for her favourite band taking over the town in two weeks—but don't tell her about it yet! This will keep her on her toes during their concert date and make her feel loved after all this effort from you!

Take her on an unconventional date.

A unique date can be the perfect way to surprise your girlfriend on her birthday. When you take a girl out for the first time, you have to impress her and show her that you are not just any guy.

If she's never been to the place where you're taking her for dinner or drinks, then it'll definitely leave an impression on your woman.

You don't have to go overboard with this one; just try something new and exciting! Even if what you choose is not extravagant or expensive, she will appreciate that special effort was made in order for her enjoyment - even more so when she realizes that all other guys wouldn't bother doing such things for their girlfriends' birthdays (or at all).

Get her a thoughtful gift.

When you're looking for the perfect birthday gift for your girlfriend, it's important to keep in mind that she will actually use and appreciate what you get her. A thoughtful gift is one that is special to you, but also something she will appreciate. You can take this a step further by making the gift yourself—this shows that you put a lot of thought into it!

A few ideas:

  • Paint her favourite picture of herself on canvas (or another medium) using watercolours or acrylics
  • Make a scrapbook filled with photos of your favourite memories together and write captions as captions were written back when people still wrote on paper instead of computers (which means they're handwritten)

Spend more time with her than you usually do.

As the saying goes, actions speak louder than words. This is especially true when it comes to your girlfriend of four years who has been feeling neglected lately and has been complaining that she wants more time with you.

You could take her out for a fancy dinner or buy her a gift, but those are all things that have been done in the past by other people and they might not be as special to her as they once were. Instead, why not spend more time together?

important for couples to make time for each other even when life gets busy; this can help keep the spark alive in any relationship!

Do something out of the ordinary for the two of you.

  • Do something out of the ordinary for the two of you.
  • Go for a walk in the park, go for a hike, or get a babysitter and go to a movie.
  • Take your girlfriend to an art gallery or museum and look at all the paintings together.
  • Go to an amusement park that she's never been to before (but don't forget her birthday present).
  • Go see a comedian perform live with your girlfriend so that he can make jokes about how old you both are!

Bring her flowers or a small gift when she least expects it.

Flowers are a classic gift that any woman would love to receive on her birthday. The most important thing to know is what kind of flowers she likes best, so do some research and make sure you know your girl's favourite flower before you go out and buy it.

If you're not sure, ask her friends or family members what they think she would like.

Another thing you can do with flowers is getting creative with the presentation. You could wrap them up in cellophane and place them in a small box filled with tissue paper or put them in a vase and bring that to her house.

This can be done by asking the florist for help if you aren't sure how to arrange them yourself!

Don't forget to include a card or note explaining why they're special: "Happy Birthday" or some form of gratitude might be enough depending on how well you know each other at this point (if not yet).

Give her a private dance party.

If you want to surprise your girlfriend on her birthday, then the best way is to invite her over for a private dance party.

You could play some of her favourite songs, or even make up a song that describes how much she means to you. You can even put on some fancy clothes and dance with her. The most important thing is to make it special because after all, this is the woman who has been by your side since the beginning.

If she doesn't like dancing and prefers to sit back and watch others do their thing, then just make sure that she feels comfortable watching from afar before joining the fun!

Bring back an inside joke or happy memory from your relationship.

One of the best ways to surprise her is by bringing back an inside joke or happy memory from your relationship.

The best way to bring back a happy memory is by showing her something that reminds you both of that memory, like photos or videos. You can also share stories about how funny it was, and how much fun you had together.

For example, if she always laughs when you say “I love dinosaurs” in a really annoying voice, then saying “I love dinosaurs” in your most annoying voice would be a great way to surprise her on her birthday!

You can make your girlfriend feel special without spending too much money

You can make your girlfriend feel special without spending too much money.

Spending time with her and doing something she has always wanted to do is one of the best ways to surprise your girlfriend on her birthday. You can also surprise her by buying her a thoughtful gift.

To make this gift special, you can add a personal touch that not everyone else will have thought of. For example, if your girlfriend likes chocolate then you could buy her some chocolates but add a personal message inside each box so that only they know what it says.


You don’t have to spend a lot of money to show how much you care about your girlfriend. If you want to do something special for her birthday, just think about what she likes and try to make it happen.
