The gesture from the Ninani Group of Companies, a leading name in the integrated marketing communication industry made up of five companies including Innova DDB, Touchpoint Magna Carta is part of their corporate social responsibility.
The Shekina Clinic was established by the late Dr. David Abdulai to provide free medical care to the needy and lunatics including a popular food-on- wheels programme.
