According to a Graphic.com report, Apostle Safo donated amount of GHC 500,000 to the First Lady last Friday, on behalf his church to support the initiative.
He lauded the First Lady’s campaign, stating that the project will certainly prevent more deaths of women and children due to lack of facilities at the hospital.
Mrs. Akufo-Addo in turn, thanked the Apostle for his donation and his support, while noting that the first block will be completed soon.
