The Techiman South Municipal local chapter of the Ghana National Association of Private Schools (GNAPS), as part of its annual week celebration have donated items worth thousands of cedis to the children’s ward at the Abrafi Hospital, Ahmadiyya Hospital and Holy Family Hospital.

The items which include cartons of milk, detergents, fruits and toilet rolls were contributed by pupils of the donor basic schools and supplemented by the school authorities.

Presenting the items to the hospitals, the Secretary for the Techiman Chapter of GNAPS, Mr. Evans Yao Tome, said the schools decided to make the presentation to complement the hospitals’ health care delivery, particularly their services to children and mothers in their catchment areas.

“As part of GNAPS week celebrations, the learners deemed it fit to visit their colleagues who are currently receiving healthcare and couldn’t join them for the celebrations, the learners provided the items of which the school authorities supported them.”

“We are doing this to encourage the general public to also come to the aid of our hospitals and this gesture also inculcate the spirit of given in the children, we thank parents for supporting their wards with the items and we encourages them to allow their wards to fully partake in this week’s celebrations. He said.

According to him, there is a natural link between good health and academia adding that, it is important for the society to support and co-operate with health institutions to enable them to provide quality health services to their clients.

Some of the nurses for these hospitals, on behalf of the hospital’s administration, thanked the schools for the gesture and assured the association that their presentation would leave an indelible mark in the annals of the hospital.

They use the opportunity to call on the government to come to their aid to equip their wards with beds and other facilities that are needed in the children wards.

“We thank the leadership of the Ghana National Association of Private Schools and their students for this kind gesture, most of our patients sometimes find it very difficult to even buy tissues but these children have today provided tissues and other relevant items to the hospitals and we are very grateful for that.

“This is not the first time they are doing something of this nature, they did a similar thing last year and have increased their donation this year and for that we ask for the prayers and blessings of God for them.” They said
