National Lottery Authority (NLA) has presented four incubators worth Fifty six thousand Ghana cedis (Ghs 56,000) to the Volta Regional Hospital in Ho.
The hospital prior to the presentation had three old incubators which were inadequate.
The Ho Regional Sales Manager of National Lottery Authority, Reuben Baye who presented the incubators to management of the hospital said NLA was touched by the plight of the hospital when the chiefs of Asogli State made the requisition on behalf of the hospital and charged management to put the equipment to good use.
The donation which forms part of the Authority’s Corporate Social Responsibility will therefore complement the efforts of Medical staff to enhance neo-natal care at the Children’s hospital.
Corporate Communications Manager of NLA, Kesewaah Dolphyne said NLA is keen on investing in the health of the people and that includes resourcing hospitals with equipment to reduce infant mortality.
She indicated that when people play NLA’s games and they do not win, the money comes back to support projects of this nature which inures to the benefit of society and so either way one is still a winner.
Dr. Lord Mensah, Head of the Children’s Department Management of the hospital thanked NLA for their support. He also thanked the chief of Ho Heve, Togbe Anikpe III and chiefs of the Asogli State, for soliciting support on behalf of the hospital.
