Sharaf was accompanied by his sister, Farida, and other members of his team.
Presenting the items, Sharaf indicated that he chose to donate to the North Legon Hospital because it was where he was delivered.
“24 years ago, this hospital delivered me and I'm here today to show appreciation for a good job done,” he said.
Receiving the items, the hospital's administrator, Mrs Efua Okudzeto, indicated Sharaf's mother, Lordina, made a similar donation about 10 years.
She thus thanked Sharaf for continuing the good works of his mother and prayed for him to be successful.
After the donation, Sharaf was surprised with a birthday cake by the hospital with staff singing for him.
Birthday with Kwame Nkrumah
Sharaf Mahama's birthday is not only special because he s the son of a former president. It is because he shares his birthday with Ghana's first president, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.
Dr Nkrumah was born at Nkroful in the Western Region in 1909 and would have been 112 years old today which also happens to be a public holiday celebrated in his honour every year.
Mahama celebrates daughter, Farida's, birthday
The birthday of Sharaf comes just about two months after that of his young sister, Farida.
As previously reported by YEN.com.gh, Farida turned a year older on Friday, July 16, 2021, and her father shared lovely photos in celebration of her new age.
Accompanying the photos was a lovely message from the former president to his daughter.
Many Ghanaians who reacted to the photos were surprised by the quick growth of Farida.
