The Accra – Osu Oxford street and Accra – Legon East chapters of the Rotary Club, jointly donated urological equipment to the Urology Unit of Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital (KBTH).


It forms part of the two chapters’ combined annual service project to provide help in diverse ways to deprived communities and individuals.
The items, which cost about $125, 000, were to among other things introduce modern urological equipment at the unit and complement the inadequacy of medical kits the unit is saddled with.
They included a cystoscope set and resectscope set which are basically used for trans-urethral resection of the prostrate.


This means male patients suffering from prostrate disorders may undergo surgery easily without any incision to their urethra.
Presenting the medical items to the facility, RP Richard Danquah –Boateng, President of the Accra-Osu Oxford Street indicated that the club will continue to provide support to the unit in a bid to improve the quality of care that can be accessed there subsequently.

Government cannot do it alone, corporate support key.

The club maintained that although the kind of equipment donated were readily available, the donation was aimed at serving humanity.
Mr. Danquah-Boateng further believes, government cannot singlehandedly provide for the health needs of the country, hence the role of organizations such as the Rotary Club is key.


Dr. Matthew Yamoah Kyei, the Acting Head of the Urology department at the KBTH, who received the equipment on behalf of the unit, expressed profound appreciation, saying the donation will go a long way to aid in the day to day running of the unit.
