The Ghana Nurses Association in Dallas Texas, USA, has urged Ghanaians in the diaspora to support hospitals in need of medical equipment in the country.

“We’re pleading with Ghanaians in the diaspora to help their motherland. We came with children that are pre medical students and we’re very hopeful they will emulate our gesture,” she noted.

The group has donated medical supplies to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital to assist in caring for patients.

The items include; wheelchairs, mattresses, crutches, ventilator tubes, among others.

President of the Ghana Nurses Association, Dallas Texas, USA, Aba Amprofi Helm said the items donated, will ease the difficulties faced by the Hospital.

The Chief Executive Director of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, Dr. Oheneba Owusu Danso commended the group for the donation.

He however called for more support from Ghanaians.

“The group came with a 40-feet container full of medical equipment and we really appreciate it.

“If you look at our operations, ideally every bed is supposed to have a monitor and these are very expensive machines.

“We buy a lot of monitors but unfortunately they break down easily and replacing them is a challenge,” he said.
