The support by the foundation is a part payment of Ghs 45,000 outstanding bill of the discharged patients who were cured of trauma and orthopedic.

Mr. Samuel Adu Boakye, a member of the foundation who presented the cheque to the chief executive officer of Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, Dr. Oheneba Danso, made known that the foundation responded to a plea from a friend of a patient who had been on admission at Konfo Anokye Teaching Hospital after a motor accident. The patient had been discharged back but his inability to meet his financial obligation had kept him there and all efforts from family members to raise monies had proved futile. This distress call was promptly attended to after approval was given to support him.

He further remarked that the foundation has adopted the KATH burns unit to support the department financially and equipment.

Dr. Oheneba Danso, CEO of Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital welcomed the gesture and called on other organizations and individuals with the means to come to the aid of the hospital.

He stressed that Kessben group has been of immense assistance to the medical institution, from renovating and among others.
