President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufu-Addo on Wednesday donated his November salary of Twenty Five Thousand Ghana cedis (GHS 25,000) to the Korle-Bu Reconstructive Plastic Surgery Fund as part of his contribution to resourcing the Fund.

“I have been asked by the Deputy Chief of Staff in my office to contribute my month salary of twenty five thousand cedis (25,000.00), November salary, to the Burns and Reconstructive Surgery Fund,” the President said.

This was during his visit to the Korle Bu Teching Hospital to inaugurated the the National Reconstructive Plastic Surgery and Burns Centre as part of activities of day two of his three-day working tour of the Greater Accra Region.

President Akufo Addo was not happy about the state of the maternity and surgical wards.

The state of the Maternity Block and Surgical Ward of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital according to President Akufo Addo as he saw it when he entered the hospital, “breaks his heart.”

“I saw in it the sign of a drastic decay that has engulfed our country,” the President said.

However, the Minister of Health, Kwaku Agyemang Manu, was quick to assure the president that funds has been secured for its renovation.

He said currently, only three of the ten regions have reconstructive surgery presence.

He assured that all efforts are being made by his Ministry to establish additional reconstructive surgery presence in the remaining seven regions.

The Minister urged managers of the new facility to adopt proper and adequate maintenance structures to keep the centre clean at all times.
