Regardless of the economic challenges that have brought many businesses in Ghana to their knees, the leading telecommunications giant in Ghana, MTN, this year has again brought joy to mothers and babies born on Christmas day in the Upper East and North East regions.

The hospitals visited included the Upper East Regional Hospital in Bolgatanga, and the Bongo district hospital. The rest are the Nalerigu Baptist Medical Center, and the Walewale District hospital all in the North East region.

9 babies were born at the Upper East regional hospital and another 9 babies were delivered at the Bongo district hospital on Christmas day.

At the Walewale district hospital, 19 babies were delivered on the 25th of December while the Nalerigu BMC recorded 15 births on the same day.

In all, the 52 babies and their mothers were given hampers made up of toiletries, baby diapers, pampers, baby oil, and powder, amongst others from MTN.

Aside from that, the mothers were each given airtime of ghc100 from MTN.

The Upper East Regional Manager of MTN Ghana, Richard Asamane said the gesture formed part of the company’s culture of sharing which enhances the spiritual significance of Christmas.

“As an annual activity of MTN Ghana, every year, we reach out to put a smile on babies that were born on the 25th of December and this is something we’ve been doing over the years. Christmas is a yuletide season and it is a season of joy, happiness, and a season we make merry. And as MTN, we believe that going out and reaching out to these people would show that the Yellow family is thinking about people that are coming into the world around this festive season.”

Mr. Asamane added that the nationwide activity of sharing to ‘Christmas babies’ and their mothers hope to lessen the burden of families since “some mothers couldn’t afford these items” before going into labour.

He has therefore entreated the Ghanaian public to continue to support MTN Ghana for it to continue to touch more lives through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

A beneficiary, Nyaabila Mary was full of joy and thanked MTN for the gesture.

Another mother, Clementia stated that “I am grateful to MTN for the gift MTN gave me and my baby. May God bless the company. I am with joy giving birth on the 25th of December”

One of the mothers at the Upper East Regional Hospital, Dankwa Christina thanked MTN and called on the public to support the company by using its services.

“I want to say thank you to MTN for all that they have done for us. And then, I want to encourage everyone to use MTN network. It is very nice. Thank you and God bless all MTN workers”, she started.

Christmas is celebrated on 25th December each year by Christians across the world to mark the birth of Jesus Christ.

It is a period of reflection, merry and sharing with the public especially, the less privileged.
