Boomplay, Africa’s largest music-streaming and download platform, marked its extended Mother’s Day celebrations by donating COVID-19 essentials and cleaning materials to the Maternity Ward of the Ridge Hospital (Greater Accra Regional Hospital) to support the hospital’s maternal health service delivery. The company also made donations to all mothers in the post-natal ward of the hospital.
Speaking during the donation ceremony held at the hospital, Boomplay Ghana’s Country Manager, Elizabeth Ntiamoah-Quarshie, explained that the donation was part of an on-going corporate social responsibility initiative by Boomplay aimed at supporting key areas of society and impacting lives.
“We believe mothers are the backbone of society. Therefore, as part of our Mother’s Day campaign this year, we decided to focus on maternal health and mothers with newly-born babies. We are delighted to donate these items to the hospital and mothers in the post-natal ward. As a company, we remain committed to playing our part in society, with the aim of creating impact and leaving a mark in the lives of many. Thus, we hope to do more in the near future,” Elizabeth Ntiamoah-Quarshie intimated.
Her sentiments were echoed by Simon Awok-Badek, Health Service Administrator of the Greater Accra Regional Hospital who received the donation on behalf of the hospital’s management. He expressed sincere gratitude to Boomplay for the kind gesture.
“It is noble of you (Boomplay) to remember mothers on Mother’s Day and decide to put a smile on their faces. Equally noble is your company’s gesture of not letting its guard down regarding the fight against COVID-19 by presenting the hospital with COVID-19 essentials. We can only urge you to continue supporting us and other key areas of society,” Mr. Awok-Badek concluded.
The items donated to the hospital included 4 gallons each of antiseptic, disinfectant and liquid soap; 40 bottles of sanitisers, 70 boxes of nose masks; a carton of medicated soap, a carton of washing soap, 2 sacks of washing powder; 10 jumbo size paper towels, 350 pieces of toilet roll and 10 packs of water.Read Full Story
