Since the outbreak
of the COVID-19 pandemic, Presbyterian Hospital, Agogo, has received a lot of
donations from Philanthropists to help contain and prevent the spread of the
disease. Among the donors is a popular highlife musician and sub-chief of Agogo
Traditional Council, Okyeredom Amakye Dede.
Dede has been a true and loyal friend of the Presbyterian Hospital, Agogo. His
exceedingly kind gesture to the Hospital during this trying moment has been immense
Dede has single handedly donated six (6) infrared thermometers to the Hospital
to aid in our pre-triaging of patients at the Hospital’s main entrance. On July
6, 2020, Nana, came on a surprise visit to donate a pedal hand washing device
to the facility. This device was built
with a modern technology, which avoids hand contact.
The device is mainly
pedal driven which makes use of only the human
foot. A left foot pressed on the left pedal would release soap while a right
foot pressed on the right pedal releases water.
The device also has a waste pipe to safely dispose waste water.
Okyeredom Amakye Dede has been a very good Ambassador of our Hospital. His well- intended quest to see our facility attract the best of all equipment and tools for its operations has been tremendous.
