Passion for Missions, a mission-minded group based at Deptford, London in the United Kingdom, has donated two fetal monitor machines and 30 pieces of ultrasound baby heart rate monitors to the Pentecost Hospital in Madina, Accra and Agogo Hospital in the Ashanti Region.
The Birmingham District Minister of The Church of Pentecost, Pastor Wiseborn Agyare, formed the group while he was pastoring the church in Deptford to support the missions work of the church through personal contributions from members of the group.
Pastor Agyare explained that, during one of his visits to Ghana in 2019, the Nursing Administrator of Agogo Hospital, where he was trained as a nurse, requested Ultrasound Dopler machines to help the midwives monitor the wellbeing of babies in their mothers’ wombs. He then decided to add Pentecost Hospital to the request, knowing the usefulness of the machines to the work of midwives and mothers.
He said when he returned to the UK, he discussed the request with the group, which they willingly agreed to help by acquiring the items at the cost of £3,000.00.
The medical supplies were sent through the International Missions Office for presentation to the two hospitals.
Presenting the items to the Pentecost Hospital, the International Missions Director, Apostle Emmanuel Agyemang Bekoe, entreated staff of the hospital to use the items to inure to the benefit of patients who patronise the facility in line with the possessing the nations’ agenda of the church.
Receiving the items, the Medical Director of the hospital, Pastor Dr. Edward Arko Koranteng, thanked the donor for coming to the aid of the facility. He promised to use them for the intended purposes to enhance healthcare delivery in the hospital.
