Minister for Ghana’s Aviation Ministry and MP for Navrongo Central, Joseph Kofi Adda, on Easter Monday celebrated his 62nd birthday with a donation of items to the children’s ward of the War Memorial Hospital in Navrongo.
The items included three cartons of malt, three boxes of fruit juice, four boxes of biscuits and three boxes of assorted soaps, washing powder and detergents.
Other items included five plastic chairs, some packets of toilet rolls and an undisclosed amount of money for the procurement of an anti-snake venom and settlement of bills for two patients.
Presenting the items to the ward nurses on behalf of Mr. Adda, Ophelia Aovare, a member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) regional committee on research and intelligence, said the gesture was to show love and care to the children on Mr. Adda’s birthday and to also wish them a Happy Easter.
She said it was unfortunate that the children were sick at a time when they should be home with their families and friends to celebrate the resurrection of Christ.
She extended the warm regards of the MP to all the inmates of the ward and assured that Mr. Adda will pay more visits to the ward in the future.
Aovare also thanked the nurses for their selfless dedication to work and urged them to continuously discharge their duties as expected of them, for the betterment of humanity and improvement of healthcare delivery in the area.
For his part, the nurse in-charge of the shift, Adongo Joshua, thanked the donor for the items and assured that, the donation would be used for its intended purpose.
He was particularly grateful for the cash donation, saying “it will help take off the financial burden on some of the parents”.
In a related development, hundreds of children from the Navrongo area gathered at the premises of the Navrongo Post Office on Monday to take part in an Easter Children’s party put together by Joseph Kofi Adda.
The party was one of two activities put together for children to mark his birthday.
The excited children came from different parts of Navrongo to have fun and interact with each other. They were treated to great music and educative activities, good food and given exercise books and other learning materials.
