Agona Swedru Calvary Methodist Women’s Fellowship donates to hospital

The Calvary Methodist Church Women’s Fellowship has donated items to the Maternity Ward of the Agona Swedru Municipal Government Hospital.

The items include 100 bed sheets, 100 plastic bowls and 10 mop buckets with scrubbing brushes, among others, to enhance the running of the facility.

Making the presentation, Madam Theresa Kwaitoo, the President of the Women’s Fellowship, said the donation formed part of the social responsibility of the fellowship to society.

She said as an organization within the Methodist Church, its prime objective was to ensure the welfare of all humanity, especially women.

Madam Kwaitoo said government alone could not provide all the necessary materials needed in the health facilities to enhance quality healthcare delivery, hence the gesture of the women fellowship.

The President said the Calvary Methodist Church has adopted the Agona Swedru Municipal Government Hospital to improve the welfare of the patients, and gave the assurance that their support to the hospital would not be a nine-day wonder.

Mr Christian Ocran, the Municipal Deputy Director of Zoomlion Waste Management Company Limited in Agona West, led his workers to join the Women Fellowship to undertake a five-hour clean-up at the maternity ward.

Reverend John Prince Sackey, officer in charge of Agona Swedru Calvary Methodist Church, said the cost of healthcare delivery in the country was huge and “that government alone cannot shoulder it.”

He called on all Ghanaians to complement the efforts of government to help provide quality healthcare.

Rev Sackey said the Methodist Church Ghana was playing its part by building hospitals and schools, among others, to assist human development as a religious organisation.

He said the Winneba Methodist Church Ghana Diocese, which comprised of Agona Swedru, Apam, Bawjiase, Awutu Bareku and others were not only spreading the gospel but also ensuring that the physical structures were provided for the benefit of the people.

He said plans are far advanced to build a shed at Agona Swedru Municipal Hospital to serve as waiting place for patients and their relatives, as part of the church’s contributions to the healthcare delivery.

Madam Mary Lily Snyper, Nurse Manager of the Swedru Government Hospital, who received the items, expressed gratitude to the Women’s Fellowship for their kind gesture.

She said the items would be equitably distributed among pregnant women, who patronise the ward and called on others to support the hospital.
