The Kpadjai Roman Catholic Basic School in the Northern region has taken delivery of fifty (50) dual desks purchased and supplied by the Medifem Multi-Specialist Hospital & Fertility Centre as part of the hospital’s social initiative policy.
This followed a feature aired by Ghana Television (GTV) highlighting challenges of teaching and learning in the area.
Hospital Manager, Mrs. Wilhelmina Banful said the hospital is always seeking ways to underline its social initiatives philosophy and see this as an opportunity to impact the lives of children in the area.
Mrs. Banful added that against the background of education being essential for national development, the hospital will step up efforts at assisting government and development partners in mitigating the challenges of education in the country.
“We are doing this purely with the interest of the children who hitherto have been learning on the floor at heart. Education is perhaps the most important sector that any company can invest in because its impacts the nation as a whole and we are hoping to do more in this area.
It gives us great joy that through this intervention and many others, lives will be impacted” Mrs. Banful remarked
In a brief ceremony organised to receive the furniture, Headmaster of the School, Mr. Edward Osei thanked the hospital for its kind gesture and also expressed appreciation to the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation for giving coverage to their challenges which has resulted in the donation.
He said the furniture has come in at a good time and would help alleviate some challenges related with teaching and learning in the school. He promised to ensure that the furniture serves its intended purpose and called on other corporate bodies to emulate Medifem’s example.
In attendance to witness the event were pupils and teachers of the school, chiefs, parents, representatives from the clergy as well as partners from the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation.
