THE Living Waters Community Chapel International has donated 50 bed nets to the Bawku Presbyterian Hospital.

The nets, which would be used at the maternity and children’s wards, are valued at ¢2.2 million.

Presenting the nets, General Overseer, Rev. Paul Thiombiano, said it was the desire of the church to bring some relief, especially to pregnant mothers and children at the hospital.

He appealed to other churches and organizations to go to the aid of the hospital.

Dr Francis Asana, member officer in charge of the Bawku Presbyterian Hospital, who received the items, noted that malaria had been the number one killer disease in the country for the past 20 years, and that at the Bawku Hospital, 80 per cent of all out-patient cases are of malaria. “The sad thing about the hospital is that most of the people who report at the facility with diseases other than malaria and are admitted, end up being infected with malaria because the hospital has no bed nets to protect them on admission.”

He therefore, expressed his gratitude to the church for the nets, saying that they had come at an opportune time as the rains are about to set in.

Pastors and members of the church also donated blood to the blood bank of the hospital.

Later in a sermon to climax their National Convention, Rev. Thiombiano called on Ghanaians not to take the prevailing peace in the country for granted, but to zealously guard and sustain it.

He commended all who contributed to bring peace to Dagbon and appealed to the two gates to forgive and forget in order to move Dagbon forward.
