Koforidua, Dec 2, GNA - The Bishop of the Koforidua Diocese of the Methodist Church, Right Reverend (Rev) Emmanuel Asare-Kussi has said spiritual growth of worshippers and their wellbeing and progress are the Church’s concern.
He said it was in that direction that the Methodist Church has established several schools, hospitals, clinics and farms across the country to improve on the social and economic wellbeing of the people.
Bishop Asare-Kussi said this when he presented some equipment to the Emergency and Casualty Ward of the Koforidua Regional Hospital as part of activities to mark the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the diocese in the Eastern Region.
The items considered as critical equipment included; pulse oximeter, Infra-red thermometer, BP apparatus and glucometers.
The donation was done after a walk and a clean-up exercise in the Koforidua central market area and the hospital, organised by the Church with support from Zoomlion Company.
Bishop Asare-Kussi said, earlier in the year, Women Fellowship of the Diocese, made a donation to the Koforidua St Joseph Hospital and the Mens’ Fellowship made similar donations to the Suhum Government Hospital.
They were all as part of activities to celebrate the anniversary of the diocese.
Very Rev Dr Dennis Joseph Boadu, the Synod Secretary of the Church, said the Koforidua Diocese of the Methodist Church within the 40 years spread to almost all parts of Eastern Region.
To promote effective management of the region, he said, the Oda and the Nkawkaw Dioceses, were created out of the Koforidua Diocese.
Receiving the items on behalf of the hospital, Dr Foster Amponsah-Manu, Head of the Surgical Department of the Hospital, was thankful to the church for the donation.
He assured them that the items would be put to good use and for the benefit of patients who visited the hospital.
