Kokroko Charities Foundation Donates Incubators To Effia Nkwanta Hospital (PHOTOS)

The Kokroko Charities Foundation at the weekend donated two incubators to support the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of the Effia Nkwanta Hospital.

The two incubators formed part of the Project 100 Incubators embarked on by the Foundation to help reduce new born deaths as outlined in the Ghana National Newborn Health Strategy and Action Plan 2014 to 2018.

The donation is also to support the country as she strives to curb pre-term deaths and meet the Sustainable Development Goals-3.

Already the Charity has installed and handed over 13 incubators to nine hospitals across seven regions with Upper East and West yet to benefit from the gesture.

According to a UNICEF report, more than 8000 children born prematurely die before 30 days, which meant that more needed to be done to improve the lives of the newborn.

Mr Kwami Sefa Kayi, the founder of the Foundation, said the Project 100, birthed in 2014 and with a lifespan of five years, would increase awareness of neo-natal delivery challenges and available support through antenatal education and services to ensure access to health for all through targeted interventions.

He said the project would also identify health facilities with specialised medical resources and equipment, work with policy and decision makers to focus attention on training of specialist pediatricians and neontologists as well as partner organizations, including the UN systems, towards the achievement of the SDG-3.th
