The items included; diapers, 80 pieces of bed sheets, liquid soap, bleach and three cartons of malta guinness.
The ladies also used the opportunity to pray for the patients for speedy recovery and asked for God’s guidance and protection for staff of the hospital as they cared for the sick.
Mrs Veronica Muda, the Programme and Events Coordinator of the Ministry, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) after the donation, said the Eastwood Anaba Ministries (EAM) under the FGC had adopted the paediatric ward of the facility, and they as women’s wing of the church similarly adopted the maternity block over the years and had been supporting the pregnant women on admission with items to aid in safe delivery.
“The aim is not just the donation, but we are looking at the unction on our father’s (Reverend Eastwood Anaba) life, though he is not here, the gift carries the potency to heal and deliver as they use them,” she said.
Mrs Muda said the occasion offered them the opportunity to celebrate expectant mothers and to express appreciation to the health professions for the care they rendered to patients.
Mr Zakariah Yakubu, the Head of Administration of the hospital, told the GNA that the FGC had supported the hospital over the years, and thanked the women’s wing of the church for the gesture.
He encouraged them to continue to donate to help the hospital as government alone could not provide all the needs of the patients, and appealed to other organisations to assist the facility with similar donations.
The Administrative head expressed gratitude to the Ghana Red Cross Society who earlier donated a box of soap and some items to support in service delivery.
Madam Vida Atubga, a mother whose child was on admission, expressed joy to the women’s ministry, and said the love demonstrated by the group was enough to win more souls to the church and for Christ, and urged them to continue to show love to the sick.
Similarly, Mr Solomon Atosina, a father of a child on admission, expressed gratitude for the gift and the prayers offered for the speedy recovery of the children on admission.
