JUSTMOH CONSTRUCTION Ltd has adopted one of the old Gee Blocks at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi.
As part of the laudable move, the company, owned by Justice Amoh, will renovate the dilapidated block at the cost of a colossal US$ 1.2 million.
This great news was announced during the official launching of the ‘Heal Komfo Anokye’ project at the KATH premises on Friday afternoon.
The ‘Heal Komfo Anokye’ project was necessitated by the deteriorating condition of the old Old Gee blocks, which were built over 70 years ago.
The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, is the brain behind the Heal Komfo Anokye project and it’s aimed at saving the hospital from destruction.
A whopping US$10 million is being targeted via donations to put the hospital in a good state, comparable to international standards to boost healthcare delivery.
Scores of businessmen and corporate organizations have patronized the Heal Komfo Anokye project as they donated handsomely during the launching.
The donors included Isaac Owusu, CEO of Western Pharmacy at Ahodwo Roundabout GOIL Station, who also adopted one floor for repairs at the cost of US$ 300,000.
A popular seamstress in Kumasi, Janet Abobigu, CEO of Unijay Ltd, also donated Ghc 1 million to help bring KATH to its past glorious days.
Other prominent businessmen and corporate organizations, including Fidelity Bank, also adopted one floor for renovation at the cost of US$ 300,000.
The Asantehene, who looked impressed about the jaw-dropping donations, stated that it was possible to save KATH old Gee blocks from destruction.
He therefore commended the donors for their kind and patriotic nature, urging others to also come to the aid of the hospital so it could save more lives.
KATH CEO, Prof. Okyere Addai Mensah, lauded the Asantehene for dedicating his time and energy to champion a worthy course to save KATH from destruction.
He also appealed passionately to other people in the country to come to the aid of KATH so it could continue to serve more patients in the country.
