Old Students of Koforidua Secondary Technical School Donates Medical Equipments To Koforidua Hospital

The Koforidua Secondary Technical School’s Old Students Association (SECTEC) has donated Ghc15,000 worth of medical items to the Eastern Regional Hospital’s Paediatric Ward in Koforidua to improve the provision of quality health care to sick children.

The donated items are 20 Pulse oximeters, 30 branded mattresses with bedsheets and pillowcases, 10 bleach cartons, toiletries, among others.

Mrs Bernice Oti-Dankese, the Paediatric Nurse In -Charge of the Ward who received the items on behalf Management of the Hospital expressed gratitude to the Association.

“We are particularly grateful to you for the donation of the Pulse Oximeters. We need to check their oxygen saturation so having a number of them would really make our care better because we’ll have enough to work with.”

She said that most of the ward’s mattresses were torn and worn out and that it was insufficient which management worked around the clock to repair it, described by the Old Students Association also known as “Mmarima Mma-Abusuakese3” as a timely intervention and a large relief donation.

However, the Paediatric Nurse In-Charge appealed to the general public and philanthropists to help the facility secure more devices for resuscitation to save lives.

The President of the Koforidua SECTEC Old Students Association, Scofray Nana Yaw Yeboah, said the donation is part of the Corporate Social Responsibility of the Association to Koforidua, the town where their great alma mater is located, to help improve quality healthcare delivery.

“This is the Hospital, where our students seek medical attention when the need be. So it was a deliberate request they made when we called management, particularly for the oximeter.

Then there’s also the fact that there aren’t enough mattresses when the parents come so they just place their clothes on the bare floor. We know this is not meant to be.
