Ghana’s first charity-driven drinking water, Awake Purified Drinking Water, a product of Kasapreko Company Limited, has as part of this year’s Mother’s Day celebrations paid the hospital bills of 30 mothers at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
The bill which amounted to GH¢ 10,000 was a gesture to support mothers on admission who could not afford to pay for their hospital bills and also mothers who delivered on the eve of Mother’s Day.
Speaking to hospital officials during the donation ceremony, the National Sales Manager of Kasapreko Company Limited, Mr Samuel Wilberforce Awuku explained that the initiative to continuously support the needy in society was a core principle borne out of the brand’s flagship CSR program, ‘One4Life’.
He added that, “Awake has been supporting the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital’s Cardiothoracic Centre by paying for surgeries of needy patients with cardiovascular diseases.”
Since we have become associated with charity, we thought it wise to extend the hand of compassion to mothers who were unable to pay for their medical bills as part of this year’s Mother’s Day celebrations,” he stressed,
He further assured the Mother and Baby Unit of the Komfo Anokye Teaching hospital of Kasapreko’s continuous support since giving back to the society forms part of the vision of Dr. Kwabena Adjei, Group Chairman of Kasapreko Company Limited.
Mrs Rose Oware Tweneboa, Nurse Manager of the Child Health Department upon receiving the cheque on behalf of the mothers, expressed appreciation to Awake Purified Drinking Water for the kind gesture to the new mothers at the Center and called on individuals, churches and corporate Ghana to continue to come to the aid of the Mother and Baby Unit and the Children’s Block of Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
