Accra, Oct. 3, GNA – The Indian High
Commission has presented cartons of assorted drugs, infusions, a water tank and
a pump worth thousands of cedis to the 37 Military Hospital in Accra.

The donation formed part of the celebration of
Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th Birthday and also to mark the International
Day of Non-Violence.

Gandhi is an Indian activist who employed
non-violent civil disobedience and led Indian to Independence.

Presenting the items, Birender Singh, High
Commissioner of India said items were meant for those on admission at the
Mahatma Gandhi Ward (Maternity Ward) at the hospital.

According to Mr Singh, the Commission informed
four Indian pharmaceutical companies of their intention to donate to the hospital
and those pharmaceutical companies gave out the items.

The High Commissioner said the donation
symbolised their contribution for the historic day and called on all to take
inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi.

He expressed the commission’s readiness to
assist the hospital in any way and appealed to the hospital’s management to
consult them when in need.

Brigadier General Michael Akwasi Yeboah
Agyapong, Commander of the 37 Military Hospital, described the presentation as
“timely” adding that water represented life.

According to Brigadier Agyapong, storage of
water at the hospital should not be taken lightly stressing that there should
be regular supply to the various wards at all times.

He pledged that the hospital would maintain
the Gandhi ward, adding “we do not intend to change it”.

The Commander of the 37 Military Hospital
appealed to other organisations to assist the hospital.
