The Managing Director of Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL), Ing. Dr Braimah Abdallah Clifford, has donated medical equipment and other consumables to the Salaga Government Hospital and also lorry tyres to Salaga Senior High School.
The donation to the hospital is in fulfillment of his pledge to adopt and equip the Paediatric (children’s) Ward, since 2017, while that of the Salaga Senior High School was in fulfillment of an appeal by school authorities.
The medical equipment, which are worth thousands of Ghana Cedis, comprised of 10 pieces of sharp containers, 1 oxygen concentrator (5 litres), 1 oxygen cylinder, 4 pulse Oximeta, 20 drip stand, 2 vein finder, 2 suction machine and 1 perfuser.
Speaking at a short ceremony to present the items to the two institutions, East Gonja Municipal Chief Executive Richard Broni described Ing. Clifford as an industrious and benevolent son of the land.
“I am overjoyed that I’m presenting these items on behalf of Dr. Clifford who since 2017 has been the pivot of all impactful donations in the municipality. I am touched and joyful.”
He added, “Dr’s benevolence goes beyond partisan politics and that makes him outstanding.”
The MCE appealed to management to put the items to good use to serve the intended purpose as well as convince the donor to do more.
Matron of the hospital Hajia Ayishetu Zakaria, who received the items on behalf of management, expressed her utmost appreciation to Ing. Dr Braimah Abdallah Clifford for his endless and selfless sacrifices to the Paediatric (Children’s) Ward and the Salaga Government Hospital at large and promised that all items received would be judiciously used to help in the proper health delivery at the facility
“I want to assure Dr Clifford that the hospital will put the items to good use.”
Municipal Chief Executive Richard Broni also handed over two tricycle ambulances to the Kafaba and Kulpi clinics.
The tricycle ambulances were received from the Northern Development Authority (NDA) to augment the ‘One District, One Ambulance’ initiative of government in ensuring that patients are easily referred and transferred from the health centres to the main referral Hospitals.
