Her Excellency Samira Bawumia, the Second of Ghana, had the privilege of supporting the Pantang and Accra Psychiatric Hospital in the Greater Accra earlier yesterday, Friday, 10th April 2020. She presented the hospitals with food items and protective gears which are expected to assist the staff and patients of these facilities in the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
This comes at a time when the various Psychiatric hospitals in the Greater Accra area are experiencing serious financial difficulties, that are ultimately affecting smooth operations. In similar situations, as at the time in 2016 the Hospitals were simply not being able to admit more patients because of lack of funds to move things forward.
Honorably, the Second Lady has taken a step in the right direction, hopefully the gesture will go a long way in helping the patients and the staff to cope with the pressure which comes as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak.
