GTS Drilling Ghana, along with the Rotary Club International and Wheelchair for Kids (WFK) of Australia, recently donated medical equipment, assistive devices, and consumables to the Orthopaedic Training Centre (OTC) in Adoagyiri, Nsawam, in the Eastern Region of Ghana. The items, which are worth more than $31,000, include 24 children’s wheelchairs, 24 dual desks, and 48 chairs, hospital beds, mattresses, crutches, transfer trolleys, office chairs and desks, examination couches, office equipment, cartons of surgical masks, gowns, scrubs, gloves, orthotics, and other consumables.

During the donation ceremony, the wife of the Vice-President, Samira Bawumia, and the Australian High Commissioner to Ghana, Berenice Owen-Jones, interacted with the children and stressed the need to identify new approaches to supporting people with disabilities. Mrs Bawumia also commended the donors for their gesture, which would undoubtedly support both the centre and the beneficiary children.

Ms Owen-Jones emphasised the need to support persons with disabilities (PWDs) to develop their full potential. She thanked Dave Harper and his team at GTS Drilling for their immense effort in making this presentation possible and for their commitment to helping the vulnerable.

The Human Resources Manager for GTS Drilling, Iddi Baah-Kurey, observed that the company had been extending various forms of support to the community since its inception in Ghana. He expressed his company’s privilege of facilitating the transportation of the wheelchairs and orthopaedic medical equipment from Australia to support Ghanaian children.

For the most part, Mrs Bawumia and Ms Owen-Jones’ message emphasised the importance of working together to achieve an equitable society, where people with disabilities are given the support they need to develop their full potential. The donation of these medical equipment, assistive devices, and consumables to the OTC in Adoagyiri is a step in the right direction. This equipment will support the services the centre is able to provide to children and adults who come to the centre for recovery and rehabilitation with their physiotherapy and other services.

In a nutshell, the partnership between GTS Drilling Ghana, the Rotary Club International, and WFK of Australia, and the subsequent donation of medical equipment, assistive devices, and consumables to the OTC in Adoagyiri, Nsawam, is a welcome gesture. It is a sign of hope for people with disabilities in Ghana, who need support and resources to develop their full potential.
