The Legon Baptist Church has made two donations to the University Hospital and the Staff Village Crèche respectively as part of activities marking the church’s 35th anniversary celebrations. The donations were made after members of the church had embarked on a clean-up exercise at the University Hospital.

Participants were obviously delighted at the opportunity to contribute to such a worthy cause. “We at the Legon Baptist Church believe that in addition to impacting the human soul and spirit, we must also affect our communities positively,” a participant affirmed.

In a short address, the Senior Pastor of the church, Rev. Samuel Otu-Pimpong indicated that the Church had decided to embark on the clean-up exercise and make the donation as part of their corporate social responsibility to the community in which they are located.

Receiving the cheque donation of Ten Thousand Ghana Cedis (GH¢10,000) on behalf of the University, the Registrar, Mrs. Mercy Haizel-Ashia expressed appreciation to the church for the kind gesture. She indicated that the University had made a request earlier to some organizations informing them of the need to refurbish the Legon Staff Village Crèche to which the Legon Baptist Church had graciously honoured. She was hopeful that the cash donation would go a long to help in the refurbishment of the facility to make life comfortable for both the pupils and teachers.

Receiving the medical supplies on behalf of the University Hospital, the Director of University Health Services Dr. Christian K. Amenuveve, expressed appreciation to the church for the continuous support noting that the donation will facilitate the smooth running of the hospital.

Also present at the ceremony was the Ag. Provost of the College of Education, Prof. Michael Tagoe, other officers and members of the Legon Baptist Church as well as staff of the University of Ghana hospital.

Contributions made by the Legon Baptist Church towards the University Hospital in the past include a donation of an incubator for the Children's Ward, provision of two television sets to Ward A and B, provision of curtains and office furniture for the Ward B Matron's office and the setting up of a children's fund on monthly basis to cater for the needs of very sick babies whose parents could not afford to buy prescribed medications.
