The Roman Hill Branch of uniBank Ghana has donated an amount of Ghc7,000 to the Paediatric Oncology Unit at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. The donation by the bank is to support the treatment of children living with cancer.
Speaking on behalf of the Roman Hill Branch Manager of uniBank at the Hope Alive Concert, Client Relationship Officer of the bank, Eunice Owusu Ansah said the bank was touched by the plight of the children whose parents and guardians are finding it difficult to cater to the treatment of their wards with cancer.
She revealed this at the Hope Alive Concert at the Georgia Hotel yesterday. Miss Owusu Ansah also mentioned that uniBank Ghana would support such initiatives because they believe in giving back to society.
An average of 120 children are annually diagnosed with cancer yearly and two-thirds of them die from preventable related conditions.
The National Health Insurance Scheme also does not cater to the treatment of childhood cancers on its disease and medication list.
