Peki, Jan. 6, GNA – Fredmef Group Limited, a building and civil/electromechanical engineering company, has presented 20 mattresses to the Peki Government Hospital to aid in healthcare delivery.
The mattresses, estimated at GHC20,000, were from proceeds of the sale of « Beyond Superstition, » a book written by Mr Fred Balasu, the Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
Mr Balasu, during the launch of the book, promised to invest cash from its sale into the health sector hence the presentation, which was in response to appeals from the Hospital to replace its infested ward mattresses.
He said the gesture was to give back to society and help create a better environment for the sick on admission.
Mr Balasu said a similar support would be extended to the Bongo District Hospital in the Upper East Region alongside a kindergarten project at Peki-Avetile.
Dr Alphonse Dzakpasu, the Medical Superintendent of Peki Government Hospital, said the quick response was inspiring and a great intervention to halt infestation of used-up beds in the wards.
He called for help to expand the accident and emergency units, upgrade the theatre, complete the fence wall and provide accommodation for staff.
Dr Dzakpasu appealed for vehicles for health outreaches to maintain the facility’s status as a major hospital along the Eastern Corridor.
