The Legon Club, a welfare association of lecturers and non-academic staff of the University of Ghana, has donated assorted items to the University Health Services as part of its corporate social responsibility. Presenting the items, which included bags of rice, cartons of tomato paste and cooking oil, the Chairman of the Club, Prof. Daniel K. Twerefou, said that the donation was to express gratitude to the hospital for quality healthcare delivery to members of the University community. According to him, majority of the club’s members receive medical treatment from the hospital; hence it was appropriate for the Club to appreciate the efforts of the hospital staff through the donation.

Chief Pharmacist at the University Hospital, Madam Deborah Dadzie received the items on behalf of the hospital. In gratitude she emphasized that the items will go a long way to support the nutritional needs of patients and staff engaged for extra duties during this COVID-19 pandemic.

In a related development, the Club has secured a 20-acre plot of land at Aburi, to be distributed to its members as part of its welfare activities. At a brief ceremony, Prof. Twerefou signed the agreement on behalf of the Legon Club and gave the assurance that the land was suitably located and legally secure. He emphasized that the Management Board will put all the measures in place to ensure that members enjoy the site.
