GNPC Foundation procured a 110 kilovolts generator set worth GHC150,000 for Worawora Hospital. The generator set will enhance the operations of the hospital and its delivery of quality of healthcare to the communities in its catchment. The gift was made in response to a request by the hospital after the hospital’s eleven-year old generator started to fail.
Dr. Isaac Secorm, Medical Superintendent of Worawora Hospital, said hospital had long been erratic power supply. He said the hospital’s 85KV generator set could no longer carry its daily average of 130 out-patients, compelling the Hospital to rely on donors when it finally gave up in May 2019. Dr. Secorm recalled that there had been power outage situations where the hospital has had to do surgeries with headlamps in order to save lives. He thanked GNPC Foundation for reaching out to the hospital.
Dr. Dominic Kwesi Eduah, Executive Director of GNPC, said the corporation was investing significant resources in its CSR commitments because GNPC priorizes investing in people and helping development communities.
