Battor Royal Ladies & Gentlemen donate PPEs worth ¢12,000 to Battor Catholic Hospital

The Battor Royal ladies and Gentlemen in the North Tongu District of the Volta Region have presented a number of assorted cleansing materials and detergents to the Battor Catholic Hospital at a brief ceremony at Battor Dugame, the district capital.

The donation of the items formed part of the Association’s support to the hospital towards the fight against COVID-19 in the area.

The Battor Catholic Hospital is one of the major health facilities not only in the region but also across the country.

As a faith-based facility under the Christian Health Association of Ghana (CHAG), coupled with its strategic location and the array of major services available to the general Ghanaian public, the Hospital continues to serve thousands of clients from the Volta, Eastern and Greater Accra Regions and in some cases beyond these regions as well as from neighboring Togo.

Because of its strict measures and surveillance protocols put in place to stem the spread of the Coronavirus in the country, the Hospital has not recorded any case of COVID-19 as of Friday, 1st May 2020.

It is against this background that the Royal Ladies and Gentlemen both at home and abroad decided to contribute their widow’s mite towards efforts being made by Management and Staff to contain the spread of the pandemic.

Members of the Battor Royal Ladies and Gentlemen who stand for Unity, Peace, and Development, want to see their health facility well-equipped and resourced to face any health epidemic including the current Covid-19 pandemic.

The items donated to the Hospital were twenty (20) gallons and sixteen (16) boxes of hand sanitizers, thirty (30) gallons of liquid soap, six (6) boxes of paper hand towels, and six (6) paper towel dispensers.

The others were eight (8) packs of paper hand tissues and ten (10) packs of jumbo paper towels.

The rest were six (6) boxes of surgical face masks as well as fifty (50) boxes of bottled water, all valued at Twelve Thousand Ghana Cedis (Ghc12,000.00).


The Royal Ladies and Gentlemen were accompanied to the donation event by their Patron, Mr. Emmanuel Gati as well as the Manklalo of the Battor Traditional Area, Togbe Hevi Borbordzi II.

Presenting the items to the Hospital, Secretary to the Association, Ms. Pearl Delali Dorledzi said the group has been motivated to extend such a helping hand because of the sacrifices the health staff is making in the fight against the Coronavirus disease.

She used the occasion to appeal to all Battor citizens both at home and elsewhere to join hands together to build Battor into an enviable community.

The Manklalo of the Battor Traditional Area, Togbe Hevi Borbordzi II commended the Management and Staff of the Hospital for their contribution to quality healthcare delivery in the area.

He called on the general public including the sons and daughters of Battor and its environs to strictly adhere to the health protocols on Covid-19 so as not to contract and spread the virus among the population.

The Patron of the Battor Royal Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Emmanuel Gati said the Ladies would continue to support any positive effort that would further move Battor into the limelight.

He appealed to the hospital authorities to continue their good work, adding that the Good Lord would reward them appropriately.

The Medical Superintendent of the Hospital, Dr. Bernard Hayford Atuguba received the items on behalf of the facility. He thanked the Royal Ladies and Gentlemen of the area for the wonderful gesture, adding that the support has been very timely.

According to him, as of 1st May 2020, Battor Hospital was left with only about six (6) pieces of the N95 nose masks and a handful of Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) and other materials for use to fight the deadly Covid-19 pandemic.

Dr. Atuguba appealed to other individuals and organizations within and outside the area to emulate the shining example of the Royal Ladies and Gentlemen, explaining that the Covid-19 pandemic has put additional pressure not only on the Hospital’s human resource but also other clinical and basic health needs of the facility.

Present at the donation event included some staff and management members of the Hospital including the Administrator, Mr. Donatus Adalete.
