Stanbic Bank Ghana gave GHS20,000 worth of hospital equipment to the Maternity Unit of Abrem Agona Health Centre in Ghana’s Central Region. The donated package included two delivery beds, three baby cots, two recover beds, a 10,000 liter water storage tank and a TV set.

Brand and Marketing Manager at Stanbic Bank Ghana Mr. Bennet Frimpong described the donation as being consistent with Standard Bank Group’s unwavering commitment to support better health outcomes for the people of Africa.

“Ghana is our home. We drive her growth and there is no way a country can grow without good healthcare delivery [system] because health is wealth. These items, we’re certain, will go a long way to benefit the people within and outside this community, and also afford our valuable health workers here (who are beneficiaries of our Joypack offering) some comfort and peace to go about their duties.”

Chief of Abrem Agona Traditional Area Nana Teiko V received the donated equipment and expressed gratitude to the Stanbic Bank for the support. He described the high level of need at the health center that made the support from Stanbic Bank crucial.

“There’s only one delivery bed in this hospital which is currently in a very bad state because it’s been in use since 1975. Pregnant women in labour have had no choice but to wait and use the bed in turns, or ‘do it’ on equally bad available unprescribed beds. The people of Agona and my good self are extremely grateful to Stanbic Bank for this gesture, and we’ll eternally remain so.”
