First Sky Group of Companies will be partnering the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in establishing Ghana’s first ever kidney transplant center.
The move forms part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) earmarked for its 17th-anniversary ceremony.
The decision comes on the back of a collaboration between the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital and the First Sky Group which led to four persons undergoing kidney transplantations at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital last year.
Speaking at the group’s 17th Annual Thanksgiving Anniversary Ceremony in Accra, Chief Executive Officer of First Sky Construction Limited, Ernest Nii Okai Hammond stressed the group’s commitment to extending a hand to the needy in society.
“we will continue to do as we have been led to do and we believe the provision will be made for it; we’ve spent close to GH¢12 million at the Renal Unit and that is basically giving treatment to 350 patients at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital who are on free dialysis twice a week.” he said.
The Group is expected to partner the Hospital again this year for additional two transplants which shall lead to the establishment of the Transplant Centre.
