MTN Ghana Foundation has given more than sixty hampers to babies born on Boxing Day at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra to show appreciation to mothers during the Christmas festive season.
MTN Ghana Foundation as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), has been donating to babies born on December 26 since 2011 to put smiles on the faces of mothers and show the commitment and care MTN has for the society.
Addressing the media, the Manager for Sustainability and Social Impact for MTN Ghana Foundation, Mrs Rhoderlyn Entsua-Mensah, said the project aims to support mothers who deliver on December 26 to show appreciation to them.
She said the project was carried out across the sixteen regions at specified hospitals.
Mrs Entsua-Mensah, however, said there are 500 hampers in total to be distributed to all babies born on Christmas Boxing Day.
“MTN is committed to celebrating with mothers who have successfully delivered on festive occasions like Christmas”, she said.
She stated that the foundation has a lot of projects to be accomplished including a sixty-bed maternity and child health block to be built in Keta, Volta Region, a robotic centre to be built for Mamfe Girls, an accident and emergency ward also to be built for citizens in Bawjuasi in the Central region.
She said the Foundation will continue to invest in all areas to benefit the people of Ghana.
“This project is the Foundation’s 25th Anniversary milestone project,” she added.
The 60 babies received assorted hampers and recharge cards while eight mothers in labour also received the same.
The beneficiary hospitals were Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, Effia Nkwanta Hospital, Adidome Hospital, among others.
The assorted hampers included baby diapers, baby wipes, baby clothing, toiletries and toys.
The Senior Midwifery Officer at the Maternity Unit of Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Portia Ocloo Enam Aku, said the Maternity Unit had more than sixty deliveries between December 24 and December 26.
She expressed gratitude to MTN Ghana Foundation for their immense contribution to the Hospital.
Dorcas Dadzi, a mother at the hospital, said she was surprised and excited upon delivering her son and receiving her first gift from MTN.
“I am really happy and grateful to MTN Ghana Foundation because I didn’t expect it and I am an MTN network user”, she said.
