Hon. Kennedy Agyapong Donates $145,000 To Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital’s Oncology Department
Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, the Member of Parliament for Assin Central Constituency has appealed to all well-meaning Ghanaians to join in his efforts at raising funds to complement the efforts of the Oncology Directorate at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
The Oncology Directorate at the KATH specializes in providing cancer care to patients in areas ranging from primary, secondary, and tertiary care.
The Directorate provides Outpatient services namely: Haematology, Medical Oncology and Radiation Oncology Services.
Hon Kennedy Agyapong appealed when he made a personal donation of $145,000 to the directorate on NET2 TV on Thursday.
The philanthropic MP and businessman who was in the company of some cancer experts and doctors from the hospital said he was touched by the dire situation of some cancer patients when he visited the hospital to ascertain the conditions at the directorate after a request was made to him to help improve some facilities for the treatment of cancer and related diseases at the directorate.
The affable MP said, after personally undergoing medical treatment for a benign tumour in the United States of America and acknowledging the costs involved in the entire process, he had no option but to lend his support and contribute to the improvement of facilities at the hospital.
Hon Kennedy Agyapong called on some notable benevolent and social groups in the country and especially successful Ashantis to respond favourably to his appeal for funds for the cancer centre.
The donation aside, the Assin Central MP said he has also ordered some 250 beds and mattresses to the hospital to improve the conditions of patients who undergo treatment.
To contribute to the appeal for funds for the oncology directorate at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital to treat cancer patients, one can send contributions, no matter how small to ADB account 1131000005341001, under the account name OMAN FM FLOOD VICTIMS.
