US-based Ghanaian philanthropist, Mr Kingsley K. Elikem Mortey, and the Baskin-Elem Families have donated mechanized boreholes with polytanks to enhance access to potable drinking water in Fodome Helu Dzadome and Fodome Torgbadza communities. This donation was made following an assessment carried out by the team on the source of drinking water in the area.

Apart from providing potable water to the communities, the team also donated medical items, including bedpans, screens, air-conditioners, packs of tissue papers, and boxes of gloves to the Volta Regional Hospital’s labor ward in Hohoe. The nurse manager of the hospital, Madam Esther Kporwofe, expressed her gratitude for the items and noted that the ward would require an extension to accommodate expectant mothers on admission.

In addition, the team also donated a five-set of 18 jerseys, footballs, and netball to the Holy Rosary and Musama M/A Schools. These items were donated in response to an appeal made by the authorities of the Holy Rosary School to cater to their sports needs. The headmasters of both schools expressed their appreciation for the donations and pledged to make good use of the items to benefit the schools.

Mr Mortey, speaking to the media after the donations, revealed that four communities in the Fodome area had been supplied with water, and they hoped to extend support to other communities in the future. He also noted the need to help the hospital tackle child and maternal mortality issues.

Ms Danielle Baskin, CEO of The Image, expressed her delight in extending support to people in need. She revealed that the provision of water to the communities was under a Water for All project she undertook with Mr Mortey and was elated it could benefit communities. Ms Baskin said they looked forward to extending support to benefit people to make life worth living.

For the most part, the donations made by Mr Mortey and the Baskin-Elem Families have gone a long way to support key institutions in the Hohoe Municipality. Their efforts have brought joy and relief to the communities, schools, and hospital. It is our hope that their gesture will inspire other individuals, groups, and organizations to emulate them in supporting communities in need.
