Partners working on the Jubilee Oilfield – Tullow Oil, Anadarko, Kosmos, Petro SA – on Monday presented a cheque for GH¢500,000 to the 37 Military Hospital in Accra to help treat victims of the recent floods and inferno at the GOIL Filling Station near Kwame Nkrumah Circle.
Charles Darku, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Tullow Ghana, who led officials from the Jubilee partners, in a remark, said the move formed part of their corporate social responsibility.
He called on Ghanaians to be safety conscious at all times so as to prevent accidents and disasters at their workplaces, homes and neighbourhoods.
Ken Keag, Country Manager of Kosmos Energy, said the gesture was the companies’ widow’s mite to the survivors of the unfortunate incident.
‘We are here to partner the country both in the good and the bad times; this is our widow’s mite to assist the hospital in taking care of the injured persons,’ he said.
Deputy Minister of Petroleum Ben Dagadu commended Tullow Oil and the Jubilee Partners for the kind gesture, adding that it will complement government’s efforts to cater for victims.
Colonel Samuel Adjei, Commanding Officer of the 37 Military Hospital, on behalf of his outfit, expressed appreciation to the Jubilee partners for their commitment to support the hospital and the patients.
According to him, 44 victims were rushed to the hospital with various degrees of burns.
Sixteen of them were discharged on Monday while the rest are still receiving treatment.
Five victims are receiving treatment at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) but one passed on recently.
