HFC banks renovates SDA children ward



The HFC Bank Ghana limited, a subsidiary of the Republic Bank, has renovated the children’s Ward of the Seventh Day Adventists Church Hospital in Tamale at a cost of six thousand Ghanaian cedis (GH ₵6000).

The renovation formed part of a series of activities under the bank’s corporate social responsibility to support institutions within its operational area.

Mr John Boti Kobiga, the northern regional branch manager of the bank,  who led the staff to the bank to hand over the completed project back to the hospital’s management, said the bank owed it as a responsibility to support a facility which provides healthcare to its clients and the general public.

The staff of the Tamale branch, Mr Boti said, made voluntary contributions to renovate the ward and also to provide bed-sheets for in-patients.

The Executive Director of the SDA Health Services in charge of Northern, Upper East and Upper West regions, Pastor Adei Mensah commended the HFC Bank for its support.

SDA hospital, he said was challenged with a lot of problems and needed assistance to help provide the needed healthcare to the people. The nursing manager at the hospital, Mr Wanti Paul said patients are now safe from contracting malaria from mosquitoes.

Malaria, according to the nursing manager, is the most common disease in the 120 bed capacity facility with six medical doctors.

Giving the statistics of patients’ records, Mr Wanti said the facility recorded 65 thousand out patient department (OPD) attendance in 2015 and has already recorded 40 thousand in the first half of this year.

He therefore appealed to other corporate bodies to assist the SDA hospital with equipment for its new eye unit, ENT, as well as the new theatre to provide the needed healthcare to the people.
