Ecobank Ghana has constructed a borehole and donated cleaning equipment to the Tafo Government Hospital.
The donation forms part of the third Ecobank Day, a Community action day, during which the bank’s staffs across Africa devote the day to serving communities in which the bank operates. This year’s Ecobank Day programme was under the theme “Every Child in Africa Deserves a Better Future.”
Making the presentation, Miss Adobea Addo who is the Head of Branches and Channels said corporate social responsibility in Ecobank is considered a critical activity as it constitutes one of the main pillars of the bank’s vision of contributing to the socio-economic development of Africa and Ghana.
“As a Pan- African banking institution, we are passionate about the development of Africa and African people and for this reason, Ecobank Ghana has over the years made substantial contributions towards the socio-economic development of Ghana by giving various support to individuals, institutions and communities across the country,” Ms. Addo added.
She disclosed that Ecobank Ghana as part of its Day has handed over projects worth GH¢600,000.00 to public institutions and communities across the country.
The major projects include the provision of eight quality boreholes in various schools and hospitals, treated mosquito nets, hospital mattresses, 20 computers and an incubator, among others.
Some of the beneficiary institutions and communities are Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), Princess Marie Louis Hospital, Psychiatric Hospital, Tarkwa Government Hospital, Ketu and South Municipal Hospital. Others include Zongo Community in Sunyani, Dworwulu Special School, La Nkwantanang School, Kpintariga Community in the Northern Region and Abenaso Community.
On their part, Dr. Annie Opoku who is the Medical Superintendent at the Hospital and Mr. Alex Abugri, the Administrator thanked Ecobank Ghana for their gesture and assured that the facility will be well catered for.
