Kokrokoo Charities Foundation Donates Incubator to Effiduase Gov’t Hospital 

Mr. Kwami Sefa Kayi, a broadcast journalist, as part of efforts to help reduce neo-natal deaths in Ghana, has through his foundation, Kokrokoo Charities, donated an infant incubator to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Effiduase Government hospital in the Ashanti Region.

Mr. Kwami Sefa Kayi, Chairman and Founder of Kokrokoo Charities Foundation explained during the presentation ceremony at the forecourt of the hospital that he took the initiative ten years ago to help by providing the new-borns with food supplement and energy through the provision of infant incubators with a target of hundred (100) incubators.

According to him, the Charities Foundation had always reached out to stakeholders, individuals and other corporate organisations or Institutions for assistance, towards the realisation of his dream.

He disclosed that the incubator for the Effiduase Government Hospital is the 60th one to have been given out.

Dr. Justice Ofori Amoah, the Sekyere East District Director of Ghana Health Services, disclosed that three out of the 23 preterm at the hospital did not survive and that the infant incubator would go a long way in helping District and other surrounding Communities.

He noted that out of the 439 pregnant women who visited the facility, only 100 delivered there, while the rest were delivered in different facilities because the maternity ward at the facility is small in size and cannot contain all the 439.

He appealed to the Kokrokoo Charities Foundation to support the hospital’s new Maternity Ward under construction to help ease congestion in the already congested ward at the hospital.

Nana Kwame Agyei, the Benkumhene of Effiduase, who represented the Chief of Effiduase, commended Mr. Kwame Sefa Kayi and outfit for the kind gesture and hoped the incubator will help improve quality healthcare delivery and reduce maternal deaths and life to the preterm.
