At the official handing over of the equipment and also donation of some bags of rice to the Eastern Regional Hospital, the founder of the Kokrokoo Charities, Kwame Sefa Kayi spoke to UTV news about the Kokrokoo project.
The Eastern Regional Minister, Seth Kwame Acheampong explained the rationale behind the move to join hands with Kokrokoo Charities to support the hospitals.
The Director of Clinical at the Eastern Regional Hospital, Dr. Amponsah Manu said the incubators have come at the right time when the hospital needs them urgently to help reduce significantly, mortality among babies and appealed to other organisations for more support.
