The Chief Executive Officer of Engineers & Planners Limited, Ibrahim Mahama has donated a brand new ultra-modern Drager Fabius plus anaesthetic machine to the University of Ghana Medical Center (UGMC).
The machine is to help the hospital and government fight against Covid-19.
This is part of a total of ten, that will later be distributed to various health facilities across the country.
The UGMC currently has two anaesthetic machines, with today’s donation making it three.
The presentation was done on behalf of Mr. Ibrahim Mahama by his aide Mr. Rafik Mahama at the UGMC on Monday.
He said, “Mr. Ibrahim Mahama’s donation is intended to help the fight against Covid-19 in the country. With UGMC being one of the main referral centres for treating critically ill patients, it’s important the hospital is fully equipped in order to help reduce the increasing mortality rate among critically ill patients.
“Also, similar donations will be done across other health facilities on a later date”.
Director of Operations of UGMC, Mrs. Lucy Ayeh Brimpong expressed gratitude on receipt of the items saying the anesthesia machine will be extremely helpful to the centre when treating critically ill Covid-19 patients.
This is part of a series of donations the business mogul has undertaken since the Covid-19 pandemic started in March.
In April, he made donations to the National Chief Imam, Christ the King Church, Saint. James Catholic Church-Osu, various organizations, and individuals.
In May, he also made a similar donation to the visually impaired pensioners.
