As part of this year’s International Women’s Day celebration, the Ghana Export-Import Bank (GEXIM) donated to the Adabraka Polyclinic.

A delegation from the bank, led by the Deputy Chief Executive Officer responsible for Finance and Administration, Nana Akyaa Obeng-Adiyiah, donated a variety of items – including detergents, mops and brushes, bedsheets and provisions worth GH¢20,000 plus a cash amount of GH¢12,000.

The items donated to the female ward of the hospital, forms part of the bank’s corporate social investment drive to invest in the community it operates within and for human capital development within those communities.

Presenting the items, Mrs. Obeng-Adiyiah stated that the essence of the donation is to give back to the communities in which the bank operates and indicated the donation was specifically to support the female ward because of the International Women’s Day celebration.

According to Nana Akyea, “these items will go a long way to help the hospital take good care of the many people who are on admission, especially women who are vulnerable in society.”

Receiving the items, the Medical Superintendent Officer and Senior Staff of the Polyclinic, Dr. Abdul Razark Quao, on behalf of the management of the polyclinic, expressed his sincere gratitude to the bank for the donation and further appealed for support from the bank in the construction of a maternity theatre.

He stated: “The polyclinic is currently constructing a maternity theatre to help reduce the maternal mortality rate in the Adabraka area. We will be grateful to get some support from the bank to ensure we get through with this project which will save a lot of lives”.

GEXIM has over the years made a great contribution in the health sector by supporting several health facilities, with the recent one being a donation to the Greater Accra Regional Hospital during the coronavirus pandemic. In addition, the bank has provided funding for several pharmaceutical companies in a bid to contribute to the development of the country’s health sector.
