Bennet Ashie presents the items to Dr Adziri Sackey while others look on
ABii National Savings & Loans Company Limited, in collaboration with Tobinco Group of Companies, on Friday donated pharmaceutical products and other related medical supplies to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital Children’s Ward.
The gesture forms part of the corporate social responsibility (CSR) of the company for this year.
The donation was aimed primarily at alleviating the plight of many users of the health facility who find it difficult in sometimes paying for their prescribed medication due to financial constraints.
This often leads to the worsening of their health conditions.
With the support of Tobinco Pharmaceuticals Limited (its mother company), Entrance Pharmaceuticals and Research Centre, Atinka FM, Priority Insurance and the Tobinco Foundation, various drugs, including Analgesics, Haematinics, Antibiotics, Dewormers, Ointments and Multivitamins were donated to the ward.
Bennet Ashie, Head of Corporate Affairs and Service Excellence of ABii National, said the company was founded on strong Christian values and therefore sees “giving” as a responsibility and privilege.
Receiving the items, Dr. Adziri Sackey, Consultant/Pediatrician for the children’s block, expressed his profound gratitude to ABii National and the Tobinco Group of Companies and urged other corporate bodies to do same since there were many health facility users across the country, especially in the most secluded areas who struggle to pay for their medical bills.
He promised that the drugs will go to many needy patients.
