School donates to children’s wardm

The Greenfield School at Agona Swedru has presented assorted items to the Children’s Ward of the Swedru Government Hospital to support the upkeep of children on admission at the health facility.

The items, worth GH¢1,000, included fruits, toiletries, assorted soaps, tins of Milo and milk, biscuits, fruit juices and detergents.

The school also paid the outstanding medical bills of two children, totalling GH¢205, and registered them with the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

Presenting the items on behalf of the school, Miss Martha Osabutey said the gesture was to show love to the children admitted to the hospital and put smiles on their faces.

She noted that most of the items presented were made available by the students and the objective was to inculcate the habit of giving in the schoolchildren so that they could make it part of their lives when they grew up.

She stated that most children admitted to the hospital needed to be shown care and affection so that they could respond to treatment quickly.

Mr Prince Aboagye Mante, a patron of the Bible Fellowship of the school, added that the gesture would be incorporated into the calendar of the school so that it would be done annually to support institutions that were in need.

The Deputy Director of Nursing Services of the hospital, Mrs Levina Tetteh, who received the items on behalf of the administration, thanked the school for the assistance.
