ASA Savings and Loans has donated some medical equipment and food items to enhance healthcare delivery to patients of the Obuasi SDA Hospital at Brahabebome, in the Obuasi Municipality of the Ashanti Region.
The items which included bedsheets and pillowcases, diapers, four sets of kidney dish, sterilizer, adult and infant scales, plastic chairs among others, according to officials of the company, were given as part of their corporate social responsibility activities.
It also forms continuous support of needy and semi-urban settlements. ASA Savings and Loans over the period has embarked on a number of initiatives including the construction of mechanized boreholes for communities to access to clean, and periodic health screening exercises with a free supply of drugs. It also supports orphanages and educational facilities among others across its operational areas.
The Bekwai Area Manager of ASA Savings and Loans, Mr. Eugene Owusu Biney, who presented the items on behalf of the company, noted that the gesture was in line with the commitment of the company to enhance the livelihoods of existing and potential clients as well as the people in the Municipality.
He said ASA at the moment operates three business centers in the Municipality and hopes to expand its presence in Obuasi soon.
The Nursing in charge at the facility, Juliana Abeka, who received the items on behalf of the Hospital expressed gratitude for the gesture. She observed that items will go a long way to help in the care of the patients at the Hospital.
She, however, used the occasion to also call on other benevolent organisations to emulate the example set by ASA Savings and Loans, noting that healthcare should be a concern of all.
