The Agricultural Development Bank Ghana Limited (adb) has made a cheque donation of GH₵50,000 apiece to the Ridge and 37 Military Hospitals to help deliver medical care to victims of the Wednesday floods and inferno disaster.

Head of Corporate Banking, Edward Armah-Mensah, in presenting the cheques on Friday said, the move was as part of the company’s corporate social responsibilities. According to him, the bank was shocked and moved by the tragedy that hit the country.

“As you all know in the last few days, we have been hit with a national crisis and we are here to contribute our widow’s mite. For this reason, we present a cheque of 50,000 in aid of the victims of the floods and fire incident,” he noted.

Col. Mercy Yelbert, a Matron at the 37 Military Hospital who received the cheque on behalf of the health institution thanked the bank and stated that the “money will go a long way to help us take very good care of the many people who we have admitted to this hospital as a result of the incident that happened three days ago”.

Commenting on the gesture, Dr. L. A. Donkor, Medical Director of the Ridge Hospital said it was surprising to have received such an assistance considering the challenge the bank has gone through in recent times.

“We are overwhelmed by the adb for this donation. We didn’t even expect it. You are the first corporate institution to have come to our aid within the past 24hours to take care of the needy and it is a very shining example. We are surprised because in recent times the bank has been going through some challenges,” he said.

Over 200 people are reported dead while properties running into millions of cedis have been destroyed by the torrential rains that fell for over three hours.

Some people who had gathered in front of a Pharmacy Shop at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle near the Goil Filling Station adjacent to the GBC Towers to seek for refuge from the heavy downpour unfortunately lost their lives following a fire outbreak at the Goil filling station.
