The donation was intended to enhance the department’s capacity to treat patients with bone fractures and other orthopedic conditions. A representative of the group and a Director of DPS Pipes, Puneet Gidwani, said the generous donation was motivated by a commitment to support the wellbeing of the society.

He said a personal experience with the hospital’s exceptional care inspired the group to give back. "After witnessing the outstanding dedication and skill of the medical team, we felt duty-bound to contribute in a meaningful way," Mr Gidwani said.

"Understanding the critical need for advanced medical equipment, we are honoured to provide these medical-grade power drills and saws to support the department's vital work.

This donation reinforces our deep appreciation for the hospital, and our commitment to contributing to enhancing the lives of the people in the communities we operate in,” he added.

Mr Gidwani said the donation aligned with the corporate social responsibility philosophy of the group which also imports and distributes pharmaceutical products, showcasing the company's dedication to supporting community well-being and societal improvement.

“Through such contributions, DPS Group continues to extend lifelines to the community and uphold its commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen,” he added.               

Gratitude

The Head of the Trauma and Orthopedic Department of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Dr Frederick Kwarteng, expressed profound gratitude for the donation, emphasising its critical impact.

He explained that the essential tools were the backbone of the orthopedic department, enabling the medical staff to perform life-saving procedures. He stressed that without such equipment, many cases would need to be referred to other hospitals, putting countless lives at risk.

Dr Kwarteng said the addition of those medical-grade power drills would significantly enhance the capacity of the department to treat more patients each day, easing the workload on the medical staff and improving efficiency.

He highlighted the urgency of the donation, mentioning that just last week, the department had to limit the number of surgeries due to the lack of equipment. “This timely contribution will allow the department to serve the community more effectively and save thousands of lives,” he stressed.

Impact

Health Service Administrator of the department, Mark Fiattor, expressed gratitude to the hospital’s benefactors, underscoring the importance of the contribution. “This act of generosity is deeply appreciated, and it will undoubtedly have a profound impact on our ability to provide critical care,” he said.
