Princess Marie Louise Hospital appeals for more doctors

Nevertheless, he commended Reverend Father Andrew Campbell for his contribution to the hospital over the years.

A modern theatre which was built through the efforts of Father Campbell was inaugurated at the hospital on November 29, 2012.

Dr Sifah was speaking at the end-of-year party for children, including those from the Osu Children’s Home and Street Girls Aid.


The event was organised by the Princess Marie Louise Children’s Hospital.

The Chief Justice, Mrs Justice Theodora Georgina Wood, also expressed worry over the inadequate number of doctors at the hospital.

She encouraged the doctors to draw hope from the story of the shepherds who visited Jesus when He was born and continue with the hard work and believe that God would bless them.

 She commended doctors, nurses, mothers of sick children and women who took care of street children for their support and time spent on the children. 

Mrs Justice Wood urged parents to give their children the necessary support and attention to help secure their future.

Father Campbell, for his part, urged parents to devote some quality time and attention to their children.

 “Most parents do not have time for their children any longer and leave them at the mercy of nannies and house helps,” he said.

He said most parents were losing their families because they did not have time for their children, adding that children needed the love and care of their parents.

He urged all Christians to celebrate Christmas with Jesus Christ on their minds, explaining that Christmas was a thanksgiving season for Christians.

The Ghana Chapter of the International Women Judges Association and the Ladies of Marshal of the Catholic Church also donated items, including drinks, Indomine, biscuits, buckets, toiletries, among other things, to the hospital.
