Ghanaian drilling company, GTS Drilling, together with Rotary Club and Wheelchair for Kids (WFK) in Australia, has made a significant impact on the lives of children with disabilities. The partnership donated medical equipment and consumables to the Orthopedic Training Centre (OTC) at Adoagyiri-Nsawam in the Eastern Region.

The Second Lady of Ghana, Her Excellency Samira Bawumia, expressed her appreciation for the donation and highlighted the importance of new approaches to support disabled persons. Bawumia noted that about 16% of the world population suffers from various forms of disability, and the need to work together to achieve an equitable society.

The Australian High Commissioner to Ghana, H.E. Berenice Owen-Jones, emphasized the need to support disabled people to develop to their full potential. She noted that people with disabilities can make enormous contributions to development if given favorable systems, support, and improved services.

The donation filled a 40-foot container and included a range of equipment from hospital beds to blood pressure monitoring devices, examination tables, and 25 specially designed wheelchairs for the children.

Iddi Baah-Kurey, the Human Resources Manager for GTS Drilling, expressed his company’s privilege of facilitating the transportation of the wheelchairs and orthopedic medical equipment from Australia to support Ghanaian children. Baah-Kurey noted that the company has always been committed to giving back to the community and recognizes that many children with disabilities face significant challenges in accessing suitable equipment.

Director at the OTC, Elizabeth Newman, thanked the partners for their support, noting that the equipment would support the services provided to children and adults who come to the center for recovery and rehabilitation.

For the most part, the donation made by GTS Drilling, Rotary Club, and WFK in Australia, and the support of the Australian High Commission in Ghana will provide much-needed resources and support to children with disabilities in Ghana. This partnership exemplifies the importance of corporate social responsibility and the need to work together to support vulnerable populations.
