Colonel Michael Yeboah-Agyepong, the Commander of the 37 Military Hospital, has appealed to philanthropists and corporate institutions to assist in caring for the victims of the recent Atomic gas explosion in Accra.

The devastating explosion, the cause of which is not yet known, claimed seven lives, including a reporter of NET2 TV, and severely injuring 132 others.

Colonel Yeboah-Agyepong said caring for such people required regular supplies, and called on the institutions to come to their aid.
Colonel Yeboah-Agyepong made the call when Sunda International and Twyford Ceramics donated assorted items worth GH¢40,000 to assist surviving victims, most of whom are currently on admission at the 37 Military Hospital.

The Sunda International donation comes in immediate response to appeals made to corporate Ghana by Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia on Sunday morning.

The donated Sunda brand items included Kleesoft dishwashing soap and washing powder, Kleesoft toilet rolls, and FasKit insecticide killers.

Colonel Yeboah-Agyepong, therefore, expressed gratitude to the company for the gesture.

Mr Isaac Hu, the Managing Director of Sunda International, explained that Sunda’s gesture, which is in partnership with its sister company Twyford, owners of a ceramic factory at Aboadze in the Shama District of the Western Region, formed part of the company’s corporate social responsibility policy to assist needy communities and victims of disasters in the country.

Ms Joana Seppey, acting Public Relations Officer of the 37 Military Hospital, told the Ghana News Agency that 11 victims were on admission, two at the Intensive Care Unit, one at Easman, three at Trauma and Surgical, and five at Allied Unit.
