Save The Children International, a UK-based charity, has donated assorted sanitary items valued at over US$7,000 to the Charles Rennie Memorial Hospital in Kakata, Margibi County.
Presenting the items Wednesday, Save The Children Field Operations Manager, Charles Seeves, said the donation is aimed at reducing challenges facing the county in containing the Ebola pandemic.
Seeves assured local authorities of the institution’s commitment to work with the County Health Team in containing the situation as well as addressing the numerous challenges in curbing the disease.
He said the items are intended to be distributed among the 14 health facilities in the county, noting, “We will go beyond these public health centers in addressing additional Ebola emergency needs that may arise.”
Receiving the items, the Community Health Services Director, Joseph Korhene, thanked Save the Children International for the donation and assured partners that the items will be properly distributed.
Korhene recounted Save The Children’s longstanding support and partnership with the county and called on other institutions to emulate the good examples of Save the Children International.
The items include disposable surgical gloves, tissues, chairs, tables, buckets of chlorine, powder soap, spraying cans and barrels, among others.
