The Accra Psychiatric Hospital has benefited from the philanthropy of Delta Capital Limited. The investment banking firm donated some bags of rice and sugar, drinks and toiletries, and gallons of cooking oil to the health facility. The items are expected to provide support to the staff and residents of the hospital.
The Accra Psychiatric Hospital was opened in 1906 for the treatment, welfare, training and rehabilitation of the mentally ill. It was originally designed to accommodate 200 patients but has been modified into a 600-bed capacity hospital.
Despite the goodwill that underpins the establishment of Accra Psychiatric Hospital, the facility has been plagued by a number of challenges – thus threatening its dispensation. Management of the facility continue to appeal for public intervention to augment its effectiveness in caring for the mentally-ill.
Delta Capital, as part of its corporate social responsibility, reached out to the Accra Psychiatric Hospital to give its residents some support.
“Being a part of the community, we felt the need to extend a helping hand with our widows’ mite to residents of the hospital,” Mr. Nicholas Tetteh, Head of Business Development at Delta Capital, underscored as motivation for the charity.
Mrs. Francisca Ntow at the Public Relations department of the hospital, commended Delta Capital for coming to their aid and appealed for more support from other individuals and corporate institutions.
“On behalf of management, staff and patients at the Hospital, I wish to express our appreciation to the management and staff of Delta Capital for your kind gesture,” she said.
