DATCCU donates incubator to Dunkwa government hospital

The Dunkwa Area Teachers Co-operative Credit Union (DATCCU) at Dunkwa-On-Offin, in the Central region, has presented a neo-natal incubator to the Dunkwa Government Hospital.

The COMeN-branded rechargeable Lithium-ion battery incubator, worth GHC40,000.00 was donated to the facility in response to an appeal by the hospital management to the management of the firm last year.

The Board Chairman of DATCCU, Mr Dauda Issaka, said during the presentation last week Wednesday in the presence of senior management members of the hospital and other Board members of DATCCU, that the donation comes under the company’s corporate social responsibility policy and indicated that his outfit felt the need to respond to the call by the hospital to partly close the logistic gap of the only major health facility in the Upper Denkyira enclave.

He urged management of the facility to take good care of the equipment to serve the purpose for which it was procured.

Mr. Issaka also called on corporate Ghana to emulate DATCCU’s initiative.

The Chief Executive Officer of DATCCU, Mr. Emmanuel Kofi Obeng, urged the general public, especially artisans, business owners and other groups from the informal sector to patronise the tailor-made services of DATCCU by saving and accessing credit facilities to grow and expand their businesses.

Dr. Jonathan Benjamin Annan, the Medical Superintendent of the Dunkwa Government Hospital, who received the incubator, noted that the lives of children are precious and so under no circumstances should lives be lost in this era of technological advancement.

He expressed appreciation on behalf of the hospital to DATCCU for responding to their call and urged other corporate institutions, especially the financial institutions in and around Dunkwa to emulate the exemplary gesture of DATCCU.

The Medical Superintendent further appealed to the general public to assist the hospital to procure state-of-the-art physiotherapy equipment.

He further pledged that the incubator would be put to good use and consistently maintained to prolong its life span.
