“We are more than happy for your kind gesture and we can assure you that the center will use the donation to improve lives of the poor and needy patients, who are in need of medical help”, Dr Lawrence Siiiboe, Chief Executive of the center said.

“There are so many Ghanaians who have heart problems but the increasing costs of heart solutions not only in Ghana but even in Europe and America, means that the center has to depend on donors like Maxam and other sponsors to keep the center afloat, adding “we need more donations to save lives of the people”, Dr Siriboe said.

Maxam, headquartered in Spain, is a market leader in the manufacture and distribution of explosives. It has branches all over West Africa and operates in Ghana as its sub regional capital in the past 23years.

Making the donation, Mr., Jose Fernando Sanchez – Junco Mans, the Chief Executive of Maxam said Maxam was happy with the contribution being made by the center to the people of Ghana and even beyond. He said his company will continue to support the center as long as Maxam operates in the country. He noted that over the years Maxam has contributed socially to several organizations, including the University of Mines and Technology, rehabilitation of orphanages, hospitals and offices and bungalows as part of its corporate social responsibility.

On his part, Ehunuabobrim Nana Pra Agyensem V1, Omanhene of Assin Kushia, and a former Member of the Council of State, who chaired the function; urged other endowed companies operating in the country to emulate the gesture exhibited by Maxaim, saying “the cardio center needs support so that it can treat more patients, We should all contribute one way or the other to expand and sustain the vital services the center is providing”.

Ehunnuabobrium, who is also a lawyer commended the doctors and nurses of the center for their yeomen job in saving lives and urged them to keep it up..
