Cardinal Resources Ghana Limited has extended a helping hand to Nangodi Hospital in the Nabdam District of the Upper East region by donating four hospital beds and accessories to the hospital. The gesture seeks to enhance healthcare delivery in the area, in line with the company’s corporate social responsibility.
The donation exercise was witnessed by the Vice President of Cardinal Resources Ghana Limited, Feng Boali; District Chief Executive of Nabdam, Agnes Anamoo; hospital staff; community leaders; and community members.
Maxwell Wooma, the Community and Social Responsibility Superintendent of the company, expressed optimism that the donation of the beds will alleviate the strain on the hospital’s capacity and enhance its ability to provide quality healthcare services to residents of Nabdam.
“Our principle at Cardinal Resources Ghana Limited is based on shared value, ensuring that while we are working, we also give back to the communities so that they don’t remain in situ. That is why today, Cardinal Resources Ghana Limited is here to donate four hospital beds with their complete accessories so that it will help save the needless referrals that we have been having due to our incapacity to contain inpatients in this health center.”
Cardinal Resources Ghana Limited has been conducting gold exploration in the Nandogi area and the Nabdam district at large for the past years. In that regard, Mr. Wooma recounted that his outfit and the communities, especially people in the Nangodi area, “enjoyed a unique, harmonious relationship” during the exploration period.
He commended the Nabdam district assembly and the Paramount Chief of the Nangodi Traditional Area, Napariyeong Kosom Yelzoya Asaga II, for their unflinching support during the exploration.
Mr. Wooma disclosed that the donation of the hospital beds was based on a request from the assembly member of the Nangodi electoral area, Sampana Zure Abaa, which included the need to renovate the Nangodi hospital.
“However, considering the timing of the request, we saw it necessary for us to support in this way and to find enough time to come back later to continue to support,” the Community and Social Responsibility Superintendent added.
Avolsure Maxwell, a Physician Assistant in charge of the Nangodi Health Center, on behalf of the hospital staff and management, expressed gratitude for the timely donation, emphasizing the positive impact it will have on healthcare delivery.
He appealed to the mining firm to support the hospital with items such as hematology analyzers for testing full blood count and ultrasound machines for pregnancy scanning.
District Chief Executive for Nabdam, Madam Agnes Anamoo, commended Cardinal Resources Ghana Limited for their generosity. “Try and renovate the hospital and write boldly on it, that it was renovated by Cardinal, and anyone who comes will appreciate what the company has done for the district.”
She commended the company for supporting the assembly with logistics to honor deserving farmers during this year’s Farmers’ Day celebration.
The assembly member for the Nangodi electoral area, Mr. Sampana, could not hide his joy and thanked Cardinal Resources Ghana Limited for responding to his request for the hospital beds.
“I have also made other requests, and by tomorrow, we will be getting three boreholes from Cardinal Resources Ghana Limited. We appreciate all the company is doing for the communities and we will continue to support them anytime they are in need,” he added.
Paramount Chief of Nangodi, Napariyeong Asaga, when contacted on the phone, said the Nabdam district has been classified as one of the poorest in the country. “So, I am happy that the mining company is coming and promising to engage the young people, and that is why I am supporting them.”
