Zain shows love to nursing mothers (pg 46)

The Maternity Ward of the La General Hospital on Sunday, Valentine’s Day, was a sight of joy and excitement as Zain Ghana showed love to nursing mothers and new-born babies at the hospital.
Dubbed the Zain Beautiful Hearts, the initiative was to assist deprived mothers who were likely to face financial challenges in caring for their babies after they had left the hospital.
It also focused on extending love and care to new-born babies and their mothers on Valentine’s Day by simultaneously distributing 630 baby hampers among 13 government hospitals all over the country.
Under the programme, senior management members of the company led teams of employees to distribute hampers which contained baby products to the mothers at selected hospitals.
They included the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, the Cape Coast General Hospital, the Sunyani General Hospital, the Tamale Regional Hospital, the Wa Regional Hospital and the Ho Government Hospital.
At the La General Hospital, 10 babies, made up of six girls and four boys, delivered between midnight and 10 a.m. on Sunday and other nursing mothers were the beneficiaries of the hampers.
The Manager of Corporate Communications and External Affairs of Zain, Mrs Carmen Bruce Annan, said children were an important part of the country’s future and Zain chose Valentine's Day to express its love to them.
She said since the day was a day of love, there was no better way to show love to the new-born babies and their mothers.
Mrs Bruce-Annan said the company was glad to be part of the lives of the new-born babies through the programme.
Speaking to the Daily Graphic, the Principal Nursing Officer of the hospital, Mrs Georgina Nortey, said the initiative was worth commending, as the donations would assist some of the mothers who could not afford the items.
She expressed gratitude to the company for its kind gesture, saying, "Its kindness will put smiles on the faces of these mothers."
A beneficiary, Mrs Olivia Yeboah, told the Daily Graphic that the package was her first ever Valentine’s Day gift.
She thanked Zain for the gesture, saying, "May God bless its work and bring it more profit in return."
