FORMER PATIENT DONATES ASSORTED ITEMS AND CASH GIFT TO FOCOS ORTHOPEDIC HOSPITAL
Founder of Boulders Advisors Ltd, and Managing Director of Early Power Ltd, Mr. Reginald France has donated a cash gift of GHC50,000 and assorted items to the FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital. In a season of despair and uncertainty amidst the COVID19 pandemic, Mr. Reginald and his wife Debbie, with their daughter, intended to spread some holiday cheer among the children who are receiving care at the Hospital and need support now more than ever.
In a special visit to the Hospital on Friday 18th December, 2020, Mr. France, a former patient, and his family took time to interact with pediatric patients. The family also spent time with patients at the children’s ward and interacted with a contingent of seventeen (17) patients from Ethiopia, and donated assorted food items and play materials including scrabbles and monopoly to the children. In addition, Mr. France and his family made a cash donation of GHC50,000 to the Hospital in response to the call to action at the recently held Virtual Fundraising Gala by FOCOS. “We missed the opportunity last Christmas, so this Christmas, I saw your virtual fundraising [broadcast], and it reminded me… So we felt that my daughter, her mum and I will present you with some few things including games for the kids and a cheque for Ghc50,000. We hope that this will go a long way to help in your activities as you help all these kids”, Mr. Reginald said.
Mr. France also used the opportunity to inform the Hospital about his family’s intention to visit the Hospital again within a short time to make some more donations to the children receiving treatment.Receiving the cheque on behalf of FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital, Mrs. Vivian Quarshie, the Hospital’s Administrative Manager expressed gratitude to Mr. Reginald France and his family for their kind donation, and expressed the hope that other philanthropists would take similar steps to support the FOCOS Hospital, and contribute to its mission to make available optimum and affordable orthopedic care to the underserved populations in Ghana.
FOCOS is grateful to Mr. Reginald France and his family, whose kind donations represent a significant spark in our collective stride to making kindness the new normal for pediatric patients.
