Kokrokoo Charities Foundation has donated two incubators to the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of the Brong Ahafo Regional Hospital in Sunyani.
Mr Kwami Sefa Kayi, founder of the Kokrokoo Charities Foundation and host of the Kokrokoo Morning Show on Peace FM, who presented the incubators said, it would go a long way to help save many infant lives at the Hospital.
“When it comes to child birth, we should have less reports or fewer or probably zero reports of infant mortality due to the unavailability of incubators,” Mr Sefa Kayi.
He said “We are just doing our little bit the in service to our God and to our country, hoping that this will impact positively on lives”.
He further explained that the incubators being donated fall under the “Giving hope to mothers, Keeping Children Alive” campaign, championed by the Foundation and aimed at raising funds to purchase and install 100 incubators in NICUs of health facilities nationwide.
He said the incubators were to help cater for babies born before 37 weeks of pregnancy, known in medical terms as pre-term deliveries.
Mr Sefa Kayi said when he initiated the fund-raising programme in June 2014 to purchase 100 incubators at a cost of $100 million, most people thought it was so daunting, but he believed “someone needed to do it”.
