The Baiden Ghartey hospital in Cape Coast has donated stationery materials, computers, toiletries and food items worth 15,000 Cedis to some 81 basic schools in the Cape Coast metropolis.
The donation exercise forms part of the hospital's “Show your love project” which started last year.
The hospital also presented a computer to the Cape Coast Metro education directorate in fulfilment of an earlier request forwarded by the office to the hospital.
According to the Chief Executive Officer of the Hospital, Dr. Edward Ghartey, the donation forms part of the hospital’s commitment in contributing to the educational development in the Metropolis.

“We need to affect society; we need to do something for someone else, therefore we embarked on this charity campaign. It’s titled; SHOW YOUR LOVE 2018.”
“It was in two sessions, we had the health side and the education side; the health side was completed last year and this year we are focusing on the education aspect; which includes donating to the schools.”
Speaking to the media, Dr. Ghartey said, they will be visiting all basic schools in the Metropolis to ascertain their challenges and in return offer their support in any kind possible.
Dr. Ghartey further added that they are working with the Ghana Education Service (GES) in the district to ensure what they give falls in the hands of those who need it.
He said the gesture is also to encourage other philanthropist to do same.
