It’s Christmas and Ghana’s Telecommunication company; MTN Ghana has a beautiful way of putting smiles on nursing mothers and new new born babies. This has been a tradition with the Yello MTN Family. Babies born on 25 and 26 day of December get to receive nice hampers from MTN.
It is presumed to be the very first gift from “a caring company as MTN”, Kennedy Ofosuhene, Corporate Services Advisor, Southern Ghana -MTN, said.
In the Western Region, the team from MTN Ghana took turns to present these hampers which contain every essential material a new baby would need, to public hospitals in the capital. The latest addition to these items was a packet of facemask, and sanitizer to help curb the spread of COVID-19 infection, and ultimately protect the new baby from the novel virus.
Every new born child on 25 and 26 December at the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital, the Essikado Government Hospital and others got to receive a hamper from MTN.
Mr. Ofosuhene on behalf of MTN Ghana, assured the new born babies of the company’s commitment to building a better world that supports their development.
“It’s our tradition of giving hampers to babies who were born on the 25th and 26th December. The rationale is to welcome them into the world and also into the Yello MTN Family, and also to tell them that we care for them, and assuring them of building a better world.”
The Deputy Head of Administration at the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital, Priscilla Naa Morley Armah was thankful to MTN for putting smiles on the mothers of these babies.
“We are grateful to MTN forgiving these parcels to mothers who just gave birth on the 25th and today. We say thank you once again, and may next year be a prosperous one to everyone such they could give more.”
She however suggested the company consider offering some financial support to settle bills of mothers [exclusives for those that delivered on 25 and 26 December] who are unable to pay after delivery.
“Some mothers have medical bills which they are unable to pay. If they can also budget something to pay off their expenses, we will be most grateful for that.”
At the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital seven new born babies; five girls and two boys; were welcomed to the Yello Family.
