Several Health Care Facilities drawn from the various regions in the country have benefitted from yet another package of life saving drugs worth $30m donated and distributed free of charge by  U.S. based Direct Relief, and Breast Care International, (BCI), Ghana.

The latest distribution at the premises of Peace and Love Hospital, Oduom, Kumasi, demonstrates the intensity of the collaboration forged between the two Trans-Atlantic Health care givers in soliciting and distributing assorted quality medicines at no cost to Teaching Hospitals, Polyclinics, Health centers and Chip compounds in Ghana.

The President of BCI, who doubles as the Chief Executive Officer of Peace and Love Hospitals, Dr. Beatrice Wiafe Addai observed, “The latest consignment, comprising Amoxicillin, Naproxen, Divalproex sodium, Torsemide, Losartam potassium, and Amlodipine Besylate among several others, shipped from the U.S., manifests the enduring confidence of DIRECT RELIEF,  in the management of BCI and Peace and Love Hospitals, in taking hold and distributing these expensive, life-saving medicines free of charge to deprived communities across the country”.  

“Our collaboration is driven by sincerity, honesty and commitment to the welfare of the generality of Ghanaians. It is a sworn promise that we shall not depart from”, she stressed.

Dr. Wiafe commended “Direct Relief”, for the sustained acts of benevolence, pointing out that as philanthropic institutions, “we would not rest on our oars until health for all becomes a reality”.  

Officials from some beneficiary health care facilities reiterated their call on Government to grant tax waivers and concessions on these imports, saying the prohibitive import duties among other charges at the ports don’t augur well for frequent shipments. 

Representatives from the various health care institutions who benefitted from the latest donation promised to put the drugs to optimum use and recalled the enormity of assistance to previous beneficiaries.
