It has been revealed that Charger Limited, managed by Emmanuel Borketey Bortey, is planning to invest about Ghc80,000 to ensure the establishment of a hemodialysis centre at the Upper East Regional Hospital.
The lead advocate for the establishment of the dialysis centre in the Upper East Region disclosed this when he spoke to A1 Radio’s Mark Smith on Friday, April 14, 2023.
“We have had other commitments from others who have shown interest in providing for us, the machines. One of these people [came about] through Albert [Azongo] of Dreamz FM. The CEO of Charger Limited was in town for the Made in Bolga Festival, so he pledged to provide us with one of the machines. As of yesterday, Albert asked that we provide a pro-forma invoice for him to purchase one of the machines.”
“… it is costing between Ghc75,000 and Ghc80,000,” he said.
Earlier, Mr. Borketey Bortey indicated on his Facebook page his interest in supporting to improve the quality of healthcare in the Upper East Region.
“I have been informed about the ongoing efforts to establish a hemodialysis centre at the Bolgatanga Hospital. In response, I have taken the initiative to gather information on the cost of a dialysis machine and have scheduled a meeting with the board of Charger Limited to discuss the issue in the coming days. As I mentioned in my interview with Dreamz FM, we fully support the efforts to establish a hemodialysis centre in the region, and we are dedicated to contributing our efforts to make this a reality. Providing necessary support for individuals with kidney issues is a cause we deeply associate with, and we are committed to playing our part in making the Haemodialysis centre a reality for the region,” he wrote on his official Facebook page.
