Otumfuo Osei Tutu II pays medical bills for 30 women in detention at KATH

The Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Foundation has covered the medical expenses of 30 women detained at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.

 

After paying the nursing mothers’ GHC30,000 medical fees, the Foundation also provided each mother with hamper and GHC700.00 in transportation.
It was happy occasion for the nursing mothers, as several of them had difficulties that necessitated surgery. 
Others were unwell and need medical attention.

 

The nursing mothers and their babies had recovered from their illness, but they were unable to pay their bills.

 

Medical bills of up to GHC 6,000.00 were provided to some of the mothers.

Executive Director of the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Foundation, Nana Afia Kobi Serwaa Ampem Prempeh said, the gesture falls within the foundation’s thematic area which focuses on free healthcare support for less privileged people.

The nursing mothers in detention in the facility commended the management of the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II foundation for facilitating their release from the facility.

The Chief executive of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital Dr. Oheneba Owusu-Danso appealed to the corporate institutions and Philanthropists to come to the aid of other persons in detention in the facility.

He said the management of the hospital is not comfortable with the detention policy but the situation calls for it.
