The Foundation had, in partnership with well-meaning organisations, funded the construction of the Paediatric Intensive Care and the Mother and Baby units of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra and the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi.
She stated that the health of women and children would always be her priority and expressed the readiness of the Foundation to work with other organisations and individuals to deliver quality healthcare to them.
The Medical Director of the Tema General Hospital, Dr. Richard Anthony who received the items, expressed gratitude to the First Lady for the assistance.
