Wheelchair Donation to Teaching Hospital

Healthcare & Nutrition

Imagine that you are in a hospital, unable to walk or even move, yet there are no wheelchairs to transport you from one location to another. Imagine a loved one, crying out in pain, as they struggle to go to their tests, their room or to the bathroom. Imagine how the small gift of a wheelchair could ease the suffering of countless patients over time.

Out of our regional office in Ghana-West Africa, Zakat Foundation has presented wheelchairs to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in the major city of Kumasi where many patients in both the HIV/ AIDS and Tuberculosis Clinics could not easily move around and had no wheelchairs to aid them.

The wheelchairs will help nurses- in-training to easily and safely transport patients. Dr. Ohene Opare, the Director of Medicine at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital said,

“On behalf of the management and staff of medicine at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, I wish to express my profound gratitude for the donation of wheelchairs for the HIV/ AIDS and Tuberculosis Clinics.”

The Komofo Anokye Teaching Hospital is currently the only tertiary health institution in the Ashanti region of Ghana. The doctors, nurses and other medical practitioners who complete their training at the hospital then serve as important comprehensive healthcare providers in clinics and hospitals in other villages and towns. Zakat Foundation asks donors to support healthcare training centers in the countries where we work.
