aYo Ghana, a subsidiary of MTN Ghana and one of the leading microinsurance companies in the country has put smiles on the faces of some five new mothers this Christmas by paying off their medical bills at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital to enable them go home and celebrate the season with their families.

Four out of the five were among about 11 new mothers who were being held at Korle Bu Children’s Ward for nonpayment of bills since they delivered. One is an expectant mother who is due this month.

Some of the mothers have been held in the hospital for over month because their families have not been able to raise the funds to settle their bills, but aYo Ghana’s intervention, which forms part of their corporate social responsibility, has changed the story for the mothers this Christmas.

In addition to paying off their medical bills, aYo also gave each of the mothers hampers full of Christmas goodies and products for their newly born kids.

“The purpose of our gesture was to create joy as these mothers also get the opportunity to celebrate the festive season with their families back at home,” aYo Ghana said.

Each of the five beneficiary mothers was full of gratitude for aYo for paying their way out of the hospital so they can return home with their babies for Christmas.

Meanwhile, so far, aYo Ghana has paid out about GHS7 million in claims to over 24,000 policyholders and beneficiaries under its innovative Recharge with Care (RwC) and Send with Care (SwC) policies.

aYo continues to drive insurance penetration in Ghana through its affordable, accessible and easy to use microinsurance products for Ghanaians.

Their insurance policies, which are funded with MTN airtime (RwC) and MTN Mobile Money (SwC) provide life and health covers.
