According to Isaac Ewuah Mensah, a member of the school’s 2000-year group, the donation was made to aid the hospital’s operations.

He stated, “This is to serve the residents of the Mfantsiman municipality and its surroundings.”

According to Mr. Mensah, the 2000 group wants to do a lot more to support local residents who are living in extreme poverty in getting access to high-quality healthcare.

Dr. Michael Goaso Danso, the hospital’s medical director, praised the group and exhorted them to keep working hard.
