The Kessben Outreach Foundation on Friday, 17th June 2022 donated pieces of medical equipment worth GHC54,000 to the Mother and Baby Unit (MBU) of the Suntreso Government Hospital in Kumasi.
The items included two Cardiotocography machines, two Digital Baby scales, an LED Digital/Satelite Television and packs of bottled water.
The General manager of the foundation, Sammy Adu Boakye during the presentation divulged that a sympathiser contacted the foundation 2 months ago and narrated some of the challenges faced by the Mother and Baby Unit of the hospital which lacked a proper Cardiotocography machine.
Sammy noted the foundation could not sit unconcerned after learning about the challenges faced by the Mother and Baby Unit of the hospital.
The administrator of the hospital after receiving the items expressed heartfelt appreciation to the Kessben Outreach Foundation for the kindest act.
She noted that the hospital apparently has been manually using rubber to monitor fetal heartbeat which was quite risky for pregnant women with contradictions.
The primary function of the cardiotocography machines is to monitor the fetal heartbeat and uterine contractions during pregnancy and labour.
