Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia donates GHC20,000 for healthcare of a 6-year-old girl with hearing loss in Sekondi Constituency

In a heartwarming gesture, Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia has donated GHC20,000 towards the healthcare of a six-year-old KG 2 pupil living with hearing loss in the Sekondi Constituency of the Western Region. The young girl has been struggling with the condition for the past two years, which has significantly impacted her education.

After an examination at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, it was determined that the girl would benefit from a hearing aid to improve her level of hearing and facilitate speech and communication skills.

The hospital was unable to provide the device, so an invoice was issued to her parents for purchase. However, the family faced challenges in raising the necessary funds for the hearing aid.

Lawyer Andrew Egyapa Mercer, Member of Parliament for Sekondi, presented the donation on behalf of the Vice President, emphasizing Dr. Bawumia’s commitment to supporting the less privileged in society.

Alhaji Labib, Western Region Nasara Coordinator for the New Patriotic Party, mentioned that Dr. Bawumia had previously donated $40,000 to support a Deputy Chief Imam in the region who was undergoing treatment for kidney failure.

The father of the young girl expressed gratitude towards the Vice President for his generosity, stating, “We are very grateful to him for the support and pray for blessings upon him.”

It is evident that Dr. Bawumia’s compassionate nature and dedication to philanthropy continue to make a positive impact on the lives of the less fortunate in Ghana.
