The Holy Ghost Temple of ICGC donated critical hospital equipment and supplies to West Gonja Catholic Hospital at Damongo in Savannah Region. The gift package will help improve healthcare for residents in the area, especially infant and neonatal care.

The gift included an incubator, a phototherapy unit, 582 boxes of children’s diapers, 328 boxes of surgical exam gloves, 861 boxes of syringes needles, 200 boxes of nasal protective equipment and assorted medical supplies.

The donation was part of the ICGC’s social charity outreach, ‘The Moses Project,’ which is supported by an Sheppard Wing, an NGO and works to prevent and reduce infant mortality in Ghana.

Senior Pastor of Holy Ghost Temple of ICGC Rev. Christopher Annor presented the package of equipment to West Gonja Catholic Hospital, at Damongo, was hopeful that they would help to save lives.

Rev. Annor recalled his time growing up in Damongo and explained that he had come to give back to the land that gave him so much. Rev. Annor said, when he looked back, he wanted to appreciate the people and give thanks to God. Rev. Felicia Annor, wife of Rev. Annor, said the Church was motivated to undertake the project to promote holistic development of the area.

Rev. Fr. Lazarus Annyereh, the Damongo Diocesan Development Coordinator and Acting Hospital Administrator, thanked the ICGC Holy Ghost Temple for the donation. Rev. Fr. Annyereh described the generous gesture as “a very profound way to express ecumenism.’ He noted that the Church does not discriminate in its service to humanity and that the outreach would help build unity among churches.

Dr. Vitalis Saadaare, Medical Superintendent of West Gonja Catholic Hospital, said the hospital recorded a number of neonatal deaths, which made the donation rather timely because it would help resolve the logistical and
technical challenges confronting the operations of the Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. He gave the assurance that the equipment and supplies would be applied diligently to prevent infant mortality at the Hospital.
