THE DEPARTMENT of Communication Studies at Christian Service University College (CSUC) has donated items valued at GH¢350 to help resource the Maternal and Child Health Hospital in Kumasi.

The donation formed part of activities marking the maiden faculty week celebration held recently.

CSUC Dean of Students, Tony Adade-Yeboah presented the items on behalf of the faculty after the students cleaned up the hospital.  

The items presented included washing powder, bar soap, toilet paper, toothpaste, canned milk, beverages, diapers and biscuits.

Receiving them, medical officer in-charge of the hospital, Dr. Christoph Debre, thanked the faculty for the items saying it would help address the food deficit at the hospital.

Dr. Debre said they would help fight child malnutrition at the hospital which is a referral point for the treatment of Kwashiorkor in Kumasi.

The students swept, cleaned the walls and emptied the bins under the supervision of the Head of Department, Adwoa Amankwah and other lecturers.

Dr Debre further commended the communication studies department for embarking on the clean-up exercise to rid the health centre of filth saying “we are manpower constrained so we take delight when people come in and support us”.

Fortune Tella, Lecturer at the department said the faculty saw the need to select the children’s hospital because children are dear to the hearts of many and their protection always remains a number one priority.

He described the clean-up exercise and the donation as part of the department’s corporate social responsibility aimed at improving the lives of the people.

Other faculty members present at the event were Dennis Sarkodie and Ginn Asibey.
