Inlaks, a leading Information Technology Solutions provider, has donated GH¢40,000 to Kokrokoo Charities Foundation to help purchase incubators for selected hospitals across the country.
Emelia Hanson, Head of Human Resource and Administration, said an inadequate amount of incubators for the survival of pre-term babies at various hospitals motivated the company to take this step.
“After watching videos on the plight of such babies, the company took action immediately to help save lives. As a result of that, we decided to support Kokrokoo Charities,” she told Kwami Sefa Kayi, Founder of Kokrokoo Charities Foundation and host of the Kokrokoo Morning Show on Peace FM.
Joseph Agyeman-Badu, Ag. Head of Financial Business, also added that it is part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) for this year to support such initiatives. “We appreciate the good initiatives… so we thought it needful to come and support the project,” he said.
Yacoba Amuah, Ag. Country Manager, said the company renovated a ward at the Accra Psychiatric Hospital as part of its CSR in 2020, so it was necessary to support the incubator project this year to help save the lives of our future leaders.
She said the focus of Inlaks is not just about providing IT Solutions but also ensuring that the populace is healthy and strong to increase productivity. She added that Inlaks is committed to giving back to society and seeks to engage in several interventions as part of its corporate social responsibility this year.
Reducing neonatal deaths
The initiative, dubbed ‘Project 100’, was established by Broadcast Journalist Kwami Sefa Kayi in 2014 to, among other things, help reduce infant mortality in Ghana. Mr. Sefa Kayi said the foundation has made significant strides in pursuit of its aspiration, as it had so far presented 35 incubators to selected hospitals in the country.
