Abugiss' 85 assists Tetteh Quarshie Hospital (Tuesaday May 11, 2010, Spread)

THE Aburi Girls’ Old Students Association, Class of 1985, last Monday put smiles on the faces of patients and medical staff of the by donating items worth GH¢5,700.
The donation formed part of activities marking the Silver Jubilee of the group which will be climaxed by a speech and prize-giving day on May 29, 2010.
The items included cartons of assorted soap and detergents, mosquito repellents and antiseptics, toilet rolls, brooms, mops, buckets, bread and cotton wool.
Presenting the items, the President of the group, Mrs Uriel Andoh, said it was motivated to assist the hospital because of “the special care given us whenever we were referred to the hospital while we were in school. We want to show our appreciation for your dedicated service to us for all these years.”
She said the hospital remained very dear to the hearts of the alumni of the school because it played a crucial role in promoting the health of the students.
“It is our hope that the hospital will continue to render the same service to the present students of the school”, Mrs Andoh said.
She said to establish a long-term bond with the hospital, the group would adopt the ward and support it in any way it could to ensure the delivery of quality service to patients.
“Let us know of your challenges and we will put our heads together and see how best we can help,” she added.
A Senior Midwifery Officer of the ward, Mrs Gladys Asare, who received the items, commended the group for the initiative, saying, “We are grateful for your kindness. We will continue to pray for you so that you can donate more to the hospital.”
In a related development, the group has refurbished the school’s Chemistry Laboratory at a cost of GH¢30,000 to help the students in their practicals.
At a short socialisation ceremony in the school, the old girls advised the students to study hard in order to reach greater heights.
They urged the students to maintain the discipline that made the school one of the best in the country.
