Accra, Sept 29, GNA – Merton International School on Friday presented items worth GHC 18,500 to the Paediatric Surgical Theatre of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital as part of the school’s community service initiative.
The items included four pieces of suction machine (medium), four pieces of suction machine (large), 10 BP monitors, three medicine trolleys, four stretchers, three air conditioners, two pieces of mobile lights and assorted toys.
Mrs Elizerbeth Baitie, Chief Executive Officer of the School, said the presentation was in response to the technical and logistical deficit that the school had identified in the Paediatric Unit and the Children’s Ward of the hospital.
“On assessing the magnitude of the project and making a clarion call, we have been successfully partnered by Unibank, our major donor, Star life Assurance, Ghana Commercial Bank, and parents and individuals who rallied round the cause.”
She said the school’s continuous search to make an impact in the community through such initiatives was what would set it apart for practical solution.
Mrs Baitie noted that the initiative was to further deepen the school’s commitment to the ward, and also to society.
Mr Mustapha Salifu, Public Relations Officer of the Hospital, receiving the items, expressed gratitude to the school and other sponsors for the laudable initiative.
Merton International School was established in 1998 and as part of its social responsibility had set up the Community Service Initiative to support the society through programmes aimed at giving back to the society it operates in.
