Ghana: Republic Bank supports Osu Gov’t Maternity Home with vital equipment

Republic Bank (Ghana) PLC reaffirms its dedication to healthcare by contributing essential hospital equipment to the Osu Government Maternity Home in the Greater Accra Region.

The donation from Republic Bank (Ghana) PLC to the Osu Government Maternity Home in the Greater Accra Region includes a tent for shade during antenatal clinics, infant weighing scales, advanced baby cots, screens, signboards, oximeters, and other equipment aimed at improving the quality of care for expectant mothers and newborns.

The donation forms part of the bank’s broader effort to support healthcare under its corporate social responsibility initiative dubbed ‘Power to Make a Difference’ (PMAD) and in alignment to its commitment to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 3 (SDG-3), Good Health and Well-Being.

Presenting the items on behalf of the bank, Jacob Hobenu, Head – Corporate Banking, indicated that Republic Bank believes in global citizenship that translates into actively participating in and supporting the well-being of people.

“Our gesture to the Osu community is a testament to our unwavering commitment to this belief and we trust that these items will enhance the maternity home’s capacity to make the pregnancy and delivery journey of the mother and child an enjoyable one,” Mr. Hobenu said.

Ray Klien, the Chief Operating Officer of the Bank, added that at Republic Bank, every member of staff has the ‘Power to Make a Difference’ in the lives of individuals and communities through the staff volunteerism initiative which the bank instituted some seven years ago to entrench its position as ‘the Bank with a Heart’. He commended the team from the Corporate Banking Department for identifying and leading the cause for the Osu Maternity Home.

Alice Akuoko Foli, the Principal Nursing Officer, gratefully accepted the donated items on behalf of the hospital, expressing deep appreciation to Republic Bank officials. She emphasized that the donation was timely, addressing critical needs at the maternity home.
