First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo went to Cape Coast to commission two projects: a mothers’ hostel built by Mr. Anokye-Yeboah, a philanthropist, as well as a brand new Obstetrics and Gynaecology Emergency Unit established by the management of the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital.
Every year, many women die in Ghana due to pregnancy and child-related complications. Most of these deaths can be avoided through effective, appropriate maternity care, preventive diagnostic and timely therapeutic interventions. This remains a top priority for me and my foundation.
First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo celebrated a distinguished man and philanthropist, Mr. Gustav Anokye-Yeboah for building a mothers’ hostel at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital: a gesture which shows the compassion of this son of the land, a man conscious of the worth of mothers.
First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo also commended the hospital’s management for building an Obstetrics and Gynaecology Emergency Centre with Internally Generated Funds. This shows great resourcefulness and a can-do spirit.
First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo hopes these two projects that she had the honour of commissioning will receive the best of maintenance; in order to continue to achieve the purpose for which they were constructed.
“The Rebecca Foundation made a presentation to the mother and baby unit as well. Together we can really do more”, she added.
