Twellium company donates medical equipment to health facilities

The initiative, done in partnership with the GMA, aims to address the shortage of essential medical equipment in birthing centres

Twellium Industrial Company Limited, as part of its corporate social investment, has donated four incubators and four phototherapy machines estimated at GHC200,000 to the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) for onward distribution to selected hospitals in the country.

The initiative, done in partnership with the GMA, aims to address the shortage of essential medical equipment in birthing centres.

These were distributed to eight hospitals across the country: Dominase SDA Hospital (CHAG) and Bekwai Municipal Hospital in the Ashanti Region, Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital in the Western Region, Hohoe District Hospital in the Oti Region, Ga West District Hospital in Amasaman, Ewim Polyclinic in the Central Region, Tamale West Hospital, and Sunyani Municipal Hospital.

Head of events and special projects at Twellium Industrial Company Limited, Kendrick Yehowada, who spoke at the event, said the donation followed a request by the GMA to his outfit to support the association with incubators and phototherapy machines.

He said the company, as part of its Changing Live campaign, paid the equivalent of $7000 for a female patient who was diagnosed with large left atrial myxoma and referred to the National Cardiothoracic Centre.

“Through our Changing Lives campaign, we aim to improve the lives of more Ghanaians, especially those facing financial challenges,” Yehowada stated.

The marketing director for Twellium Industries, Ali Ajami, emphasised the company’s commitment to making a substantial impact on child mortality rates in Ghana.

“Child mortality is a matter of great concern to everyone, and Verna is always ready to support various medical facilities through our partner, the Ghana Medical Association. We are grateful for the support Ghanaians have shown to Verna Mineral Water,” he said.

On his part, the Greater Accra hairman of GMA, Dr Andrews Mensah, expressed gratitude for the donation, highlighting that the devices will help reduce child mortality and jaundice in children.

“Incubators in most health facilities have broken down due to lack of maintenance; at the district level, there are no incubators in most health facilities, and this menace puts a lot of pressure on the few devices in the regional hospitals,” he added.
