The Ghana Police Hospital in Accra continues to be overwhelmed with its clientele base as the facility remains the first point of call in the event of the unfortunate happenings involving unidentified and unknown persons.
This major challenge came to light when the Ebenezer Akwanga Human Rights and Humanitarian Institute, EAHRHI in collaboration with the African people’s Liberation Movement, APLM, donated some medical equipment to the hospital.
The items worth thousands of US Dollars included; cystoscopy set, split sponges, syringes, plasters, face masks, suctions machine catheters, anaesthetic kits and examination gloves.
The Deputy Director of Nursing Services of the hospital, Chief Superintendent Agnes Ofori who received the equipment on behalf of the administration disclosed that, because the hospital serves as the first place of call when vulnerable people such as mentally unstable persons or unidentified people are involved in accident or die, it exerts pressure on the facility logistics wise, serving as one major challenge militating against the facility.
This according to her demands that the hospital be equipped with the required tools to be able to stand up to such enormous task, as she thanked EAHRHI for the kind gesture.
Chief Superintendent Ofori who is aware of EAHRHI’s humanitarian gestures across Ghana sought the occasion to request for more of such equipment including computers for their administration use.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Ebenezer Akwanga Human Rights and Humanitarian Institute, Dr. Ebenezer Derek Mbongo Akwanga presenting the items acknowledged the hard work of Ghana Police in ensuring security, law and other, especially in this difficult time of coronavirus pandemic.
He said though police across the globe are ill-talked about, it is an open truth that they are doing a yeoman’s job in respect of the protection of life and property.
Dr. Akwanga promised the institute’s resolve to help equip the hospital to deliver on its mandate.
