Free medicine for hospitals in Ghana
Abacus Medicine recently donated medicine worth approximately EUR 35,000 free of charge to hospitals in Ghana.
The medicines will be distributed locally by the two organizations The Ghana Baptist Convention (GBC) Health Service and the Christian Health Association of Ghana.
The shipment is part of our CSR program and is our second during 2019. This time, we donated medicine with an expiry of between 2 and 6 months, all of which were useful to the recipient hospitals.
“I’m happy and lucky to work in a company where I can drive a project that donates to a society where patients cannot afford the medicine. This medicine is perfectly good but could not be sold in our traditional markets, so the next option for me would naturally be a donation,” says Logistics Controller Mark Hemanson. On top of his day job in our Supply Chain department, Mark is also responsible for organizing our medicine donations.
In order to guarantee that the medicine is relevant, of sufficient quality and does not influence local markets and competition, all donations must comply with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) “Guidelines for Medicine Donations”.
Abacus Medicine works in cooperation with Global Medical Aid, a non-governmental organization (NGO) working in a number of developing countries.
