There is a saying that “you need to understand the person to whom you intend to give a gift”, and a gesture by MTN-Ghana really epitomised this principle when it presented hampers to babies that were born on the 2019 Christmas festive season at the Regional Hospital, Sunyani.
Twenty (20) newborn babies were presented with the hampers made up of assorted items such as baby oil, towels, feeding bottles, pomade, wipes and diapers. Nine of the beneficiary babies were born on December 25, while the rest (11) were also born on December 26, 2019.
The telecommunication giant-MTN concurrently replicated the gesture across selected health facilities in the country to show love to newborn babies and their mothers. Since 2011, MTN has been doing this presentation during every festive season.
Presenting the hampers at the Regional Hospital-Sunyani, Akwasi Kwarteng, MTN Territory Sales Controller (TSC) for Bono and Ahafo Regions, said it demonstrates the willingness of the company to put smiles on the faces of the people, and also in line with its mission to help make life brighter for customers and the general public.
“We came here to brighten the lives of the babies and their mothers. God willing next year, we will come and make similar donation with bigger and better packages to celebrate with the forthcoming Christmas newborns and their mothers as well”, he said.
A midwife at the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department, Hilda Birago Nyamekye, who received the hampers thanked MTN for its benevolence, indicating that it came at handy as some of the mothers are unable to provide for themselves the needed items during and after delivery.
She said personnel at the Department sometimes pull resources together to buy items like colt sheets, and diapers for such deprived mothers. She appealed to corporate Ghana and individuals to emulate the example of MTN.
