Daniel Amartey settles medical bills for 8 children at Koforidua Central Hospital

Daniel Amartey settles medical bills for 8 children at Koforidua Central Hospital

The children, some of whom have been on admission between two weeks and two months and treated of their ailments, were detained due to their inability  of their parents to settle their medical bills.

The player’s publicist, Daniel Odame, visited the hospital yesterday (November 27) to meet the management and handed over the money to them.

The gesture was met with gratitude from both the medical staff and families affected by the footballer's benevolence.

Child freedom

Mr Odame, who spoke on behalf of the footballer, said it was very sad seeing the children detained in the hospital while their colleagues were in school learning.

He emphasised the importance of children having their freedom to live a fulfilled life.

He, therefore, expressed his excitement  about the gesture while adding that there were other humanitarian initiatives in the pipeline.

Mr Odame also encouraged other philanthropists and organisations to prioritise the welfare of children.

 Commendation 

Block Matron for the Paediatric Unit of the hospital, Faustina Asare,  expressed her appreciation to the player  for his benevolence while encouraging him to do more.

According to her, the hospital was not comfortable with the detention policy, but the situation called for it.

She, therefore, urged other philanthropists to also embark on similar projects or if possible, adopt the unit and settled their bills from time to time. 

The beneficiaries also commended the player for facilitating their release from the facility.
