Hospitals in Ghana benefit from work of GUBA Foundation

SPREADING THE WEALTH: The management team at Ada East District Hospital in Accra, Ghana, receive nurses' uniforms from GUBA Foundation

GUBA Foundation, the charitable branch of the GUBA Enterprise, donated more than 2000 pieces of nurses’ uniforms on 24th October, 2017, to various health centres in Ningo-Prampram and Ada East districts of the Greater Accra Region.

The GUBA Awards began in 2010 with the intention of promoting the good work of Ghanaian heritage high achievers from varying sectors who have impacted the UK. The Awards have since birthed the GUBA Foundation and other initiatives under the GUBA Enterprise umbrella.

The donation of nurses' uniforms forms part of the Foundation's Infant Mortality Project that seeks to provide deprived hospitals with incubators and other essential medical supplies, to alleviate infant mortality in Ghana.

In receipt of the donations were the Prampram Polyclinic, Old Ningo Health Centre, Ada East District Hospital and other health centres operating within the districts.

Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram Constituency, Hon. Samuel Nartey George lauded the Foundation for its efforts. He added that the initiative would end the state of affairs of nurses having to purchase their own uniforms.

The Medical Superintendent of the Ada East District hospital, Dr. Philip Narh expressed gratitude for the quality of the uniforms donated by the Foundation:

“I am extremely pleased that the uniforms are new and of good quality. Our nurses will use the uniforms and some of the overcoats will be given to patients for their use"

In a speech read on her behalf, GUBA Founder and CEO, Dentaa Amoateng MBE, a Paediatric Nurse by profession, thanked the nurses for their sacrifices and hard work:

“We appreciate the commitment that you exhibit every day to save the lives of mothers and babies in Ghana. It is our hope that this gesture would motivate you to sacrifice a lot more for mother Ghana."
