Morten Gade presenting the cement to the hospital
Ghacem Limited has assisted the construction of a surgical theatre at the Tema General Hospital in the Greater Accra Region with a total of 1,000 bags of cement in order to improve health infrastructure in the Tema Metropolis.
The donation, according to the foremost cement manufacturer, forms part of the cement manufacturing company’s golden jubilee anniversary celebration to provide free cement to the premier health facility in Tema.
Presenting the cement in a short ceremony, Managing Director of Ghacem, Morten Gade, commended the beneficiary for their support in offering healthcare for the people of Tema and its surrounding communities.
According to him, it is the objective of Ghacem to support self-help initiatives to speed up the development of the country.
He pointed out that the board and directors of the company had outlined two areas where its corporate social responsibility programmes were targeted, mentioning educational and assisting healthcare institutions in deprived areas of the country.
Mr Gade stated that Ghacem has distributed about 500,000 bags of cement freely to institutions across the 10 regions of the country, saying, “Such a gesture is a true demonstration of the company’s commitment to develop Ghana.”
He commended the management of Tema General Hospital for their commitment and strength to improve the standard of the hospital.
Ghacem, he stated, would continue to identify viable projects in health and education, and provide the needed support.
Eugene Laryea, Works Manager & Planning Committee Member of Ghacem 50th anniversary, was optimistic that the donation of the cement would go a long way to make a difference in people’s lives.
Receiving the cement, Dr Kwabena Opoku-Adusei, Medical Director of the Tema General Hospital, described the donation as a timely one. He appealed to corporate organisations, individuals and the government to help in the completion of the surgical theatre which has been abandoned for almost a decade.
