ofi Ghana donates GHC 300,000 to ‘Heal Komfo Anokye’ Initiative

In a move towards community development and healthcare infrastructure enhancement, olam food ingredients (ofi) Ghana Limited, has donated GHC 300,000 towards the “Heal Komfo Anokye” Initiative.

The donation follows a call by Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene, for collective efforts to raise $10 million for the renovation of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi.

Ofi is a prominent player in Ghana’s cocoa sector and a leading cashew exporter.

Mr Jonathan Quaynor, the Vice President and Procurement Head of the Beans Business, presented the cheque to Professor Dr Otchere Addai Mensah, Chief Executive Officer of KATH.

Mr Quaynor commended Otumfuo Osei Tutu II for his unwavering commitment to enhancing healthcare infrastructure and praised the “Heal Komfo Anokye” initiative, saying it was a “visionary” one.

“Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene, has presented us with an opportunity to be catalysts for change,” he said.

“His call for unity and support towards the renovation of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) is not just a call to action but a call to compassion, a call to prioritise the health and future of our community.

“As representatives of olam food ingredients Ghana Limited, we recognise our responsibility to contribute to the well-being of our communities.

“ Today, we stand united in response to Otumfuo Osei Tutu II’s vision, pledging GHC 300,000 to the “Heal Komfo Anokye” initiative.”

The 70-year Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, is a 1,200-bed major facility in Kumasi.

It receives referrals from 13 out of the current 16 regions of the country.

It is a teaching hospital for the clinical training of medical students following the establishment of the School of Medical Sciences in 1975.

It is also a major centre for the training of postgraduate medical and dental practitioners in various specialties and the training of undergraduate personnel in Pharmacy, Nursing, and many Allied Health Professions.

The National Human Resource Head of ofi, Evans Dunyo, emphasised the importance of supporting initiatives that prioritised healthcare.

He explained that the Ashanti Region, where Otumfuo presided as the king, was where the business procured a lot of its cocoa and had a lot of employees, farmers, and other stakeholders’ residents.

Hence, it was expedient for the business to support a cause for an upgraded facility.

He, therefore, urged individuals and institutions to donate towards the project.

For his part, Prof. Dr Addai Mensah said KATH was under immense pressure and needed a facelift.

He thanked the leadership of the business for the support with the committment to supporting initiatives that would enhance the quality of livelihood of their stakeholders.

Ofi, born out of Olam International, offers sustainable, natural, value-added food products and ingredients for its consumers to enjoy the healthy and indulgent products they desired.

It consists of industry-leading businesses of cocoa, coffee, dairy, nuts, and spices.
