GMMWF donates to Juaboso District Hospital

The Ghana Muslim Mission Women’s Fellowship (GMMWF), on Friday presented items worth GH¢ 1,500 to the Juaboso District Hospital in the Western Region as part of programmes to mark its ninth national conference.

The items, including bed sheets, toilet rolls, mops, buckets, toiletries, detergents, and disinfectants, were to support the hospital to cater for the needs of its numerous patients.

Hajia Mariama Obeng, National President of GMMWF, said the presentation formed part of the social responsibility of the organization as well as activities to mark its annual conference.

She said Islam, as a religion, teaches charity and as such the presentation demonstrated the organisation’s resolve to follow the teachings of Islam.

Hajia Obeng asked for God’s blessings on the staff of the hospital and prayed for healing for all the patients.

Mr Alfred Boateng Forson, Pharmacists, Juabosu District Hospital, who received the items on behalf of management, expressed appreciation to the GMMWF for the kind gesture.

He said the items would go a long way to assist the hospital to cater for the needs of its patients, adding, such items were the basic needs of every hospital.

Mr Forson urged other religious organisations to emulate the example of GMMWF and assured the Fellowship that the items would be used for its intended purpose.

The GMMWF is a wing of the Ghana Muslim Mission, formed in 1967 to bring Muslim women together to instill the fear of Allah in them and educate them on Islamic teachings as well as secular education.
