Sunon Asogli Power donated a chemical Analyzer and Hematology Analyzer worth Gh¢100,000 to Kpone Polyclinic in Kpone-Katamanso Municipality of Greater Accra Region. The equipment will boost the hospital’s laboratory services and its capacity to treat patients with diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, obesity and other chronic non-communicable diseases.
General Manager of Sunon Asogli Power Mr. Jin Zhengyi said the company was supporting the polyclinic to deliver quality healthcare to its clients and strengthen preventive primary health care and secondary health services. The donation was in response to a request for support made by Kpone Polyclinic to enable the polyclinic attend to an increasing number of patients resulting from the elevation of the facility to the status of a polyclinic.
The Director of Health for Kpone-Katamanso District, Dr. Priscilla E. Danquah, thanked the Sunon Asogli Power for the support. Dr. Danquah explained that the chemical analyzer would enable the facility undertake liver functioning test, kidney functioning test, cardiac enzymes, uric acid test (people with gout and arthritis) and check cholesterol levels among others.
Dr. Danquah said the polyclinic was in dire need of an isolation centre for the treatment of COVID-19, tuberculosis and cholera patients prior to transferring patients to other facilities. Member of Parliament for Kpone-Katamanso Hon. Joseph Tetteh appealed to businesses to support the polyclinic.
As part of its CSR commitments, Sunon Asogli Power built a 4km concrete road and a soccer astro turf for the Kpone community and supported the Kpone Police station and the Ghana National Fire Service station.
