MTN Ghana Foundation Praised for Building Modern Maternity Block in Keta Municipality

Residents of the Keta Municipality in the Volta region have expressed their gratitude to the MTN Ghana Foundation for its initiative to construct a state-of-the-art maternity block for the Keta Municipal Hospital.

Torgbui Gobbah Tenge Sedor, an International Peace Ambassador, joined others in inspecting the project’s progress along with a team from MTN. He lauded the effort, noting that this initiative, which represents the largest Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) built by MTN Ghana Foundation, not only addresses the hospital’s infrastructure gap but also significantly enhances maternal health services in the municipality and the entire region.

Torgbui Gobbah Tenge Sedor encouraged other organizations to follow MTN Ghana’s example in providing such facilities to communities, as government resources alone cannot fulfill all the needs.

Rhodezlyn Entsu-Mensah, the Project Manager in charge of Sustainability and Social Impact at MTN, emphasized the company’s commitment to maternal and child care in Ghana. She highlighted the significance of the Keta Project, which is the largest in the MTN Ghana Foundation’s health focus area. MTN had initially committed over 15 million Ghana cedis for the construction of the facility, excluding equipment costs.

The project consists of a 40-bed maternity ward, featuring emergency rooms, delivery wards, recovery rooms, a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), operating theaters, a hostel for mothers, consultation rooms, offices, a laboratory, and more. The completion of this facility is expected to provide a more comfortable and modern environment for expectant mothers.

The project consultant, Mr. Nathan Ansah, expressed his satisfaction with the progress and hopes for an early completion, despite the initial sod-cutting ceremony taking place in December of the previous year.
