Pro-Life Pharmacy has donated medical equipment to the Ledzokuku-Krowor Municipal ASSEMBLY (lekma) Hospital at Teshie.

The items donated, which included wheel chairs, oxygen cylinders, nebulizers and oximeters were to offer quality healthcare to the patients of the hospital.

Edward Sagoe, Administrator, LEKMA Hospital, who received the items expressed appreciation to the Pharmacy for the support.

The equipment, he said, would go a long way to help the hospital, stating: “Our catchment area is very large and we need these things almost readily available to our patients,”

“Somewhere last year we identified some needs and we thought it wise to send a request to some companies for support and pro-life pharmacy happens to be one of the companies,” he said

Touching on some of the challengers of the hospital he said: “Our most challenge here is lack of medical doctors which leads to patients waiting for a longer time at the hospital. Lack of equipments are also a challenge.  Currently there is pressure on the little that we have due to the large number of patience that visits the hospital.”

Benjamin Neequaye, Managing Director of Pro-Life Pharmacy said the equipment were donated to the hospital base on the request they received.

“We have a good working relationship with them so when they brought their request we decided to support them.  We started supporting the hospital since 2014 as part of the company’s corporate social responsibility,” he said.

He assured that the pharmacy will continue to offer its support to the hospital to ensure quality healthcare delivery to the patients.

Pro-Life Pharmacy which was established in 2002 is into retail of pharmaceutical products.  The Pharmacy currently has two (2) branches with a workforce of 31.
