KOKROKOO CHARITIES DONATES TWO (2) INCUBATORS TO PRESBYTERIAN HOSPITAL, AGOGO

Kokrokoo Charities, led by Kwame Sefa Kayi on July 27, 2019 donated two (2) incubators to the Presbyterian Hospital Asante-Akim Agogo.  Presenting the incubators, Mr. Sefa Kayi mentioned, Kwadwo Baah Agyemang, Hon. Board Chairman, National Sports Authority and  Kofi Serebour, an entrepreneur and CEO of KROS Energy Ghana Ltd were highlyinstrumental and influential in the acquisition and donation of the two incubators to the hospital . Both are natives of Agogo, Asante-Akim.

The two (2) incubators worth Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000) each, came at the time the hospital was in dire need of them.  The hospital has been depending on improvised incubators for quite a long time and were functioning with some challenges.  As a referral centre, the donated incubators will go a long way to amply serve our facility and other satellite ones in about 500 adjoining communities that the hospital serves.  Also, it will minimise the mortality rate of pre-term babies.

The donation was well received by Dr William N. A. Thompson, Medical Administrator of Presbyterian Hospital Agogo, Dr. Lawrence Osei Tutu and Dr. Mrs. Kotoh-Mortty both Paediatricians.  Dr. Thompson thanked the entire Kokrokoo Charities Team, the Donors and the facilitators on behalf of the General Manager and the entire hospital.  He assured the team, their donation would be put to good use for the benefit of our teeming clients who are principally poor and needy from both far and near. 

The donation touched Mr. Edward Asadu, also a businessman and a native of Agogo, A/A so much so that he promised to acquire one additional incubator for the hospital.

By the Paediatric Specialist in – charge assessment, the unit would need about six (6) incubators for effectiveness and efficiency.  This would reduce the Pre-term case fatality rate to its barest minimum.
