Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has donated GH¢300,000 to the Kokrokoo Charities Foundation for the purchase of five incubators for selected hospitals across Ghana.
The donation was done on behalf of the Vice President by his spokesperson Dr Gideon Boako and received by Peace FM’s broadcast journalist, Kwami Sefa Kayi who is spearheading the objectives of Kokrokoo Charities Foundation.
Dr Boako said inadequate incubators for the survival of pre-term babies at various hospitals motivated Dr Bawumia to personally donate to assist the project.
Kokrokoo Charities Foundation, led by Sefa Kayi has been calling for help from the public to support its “Project 100” initiative which aims at supplying incubators to hospitals across the country to save the lives of the infant.
Kokrokoo charities thanked Dr Bawumia for this kind gesture and also lauded him for his philanthropic heart and character.
Vice President Bawumia is noted for helping the needy, the poor, the sick and the aged a trait that has been part of him since his days at the Bank of Ghana.
Project 100 was founded by Kwami Sefa Kayi in 2014 to help, among other things, reduce infant mortality in Ghana through the purchase and installation of 100 incubators of $10,000 each.
