The president Nana Akkufo Addo, has donated his November salary to a fund set up at the National Reconstructive Plastic Surgery and Burns Centre at the Korle-Bu Teaching hospital.
He made the donation when he commissioned a new facility for the National Reconstructive Plastic Surgery and Burns Centre (NRPSBC), on day-2 of his 3-day tour of the Greater Accra Region.
The President expressed his gratitude to the late Prof. Jack Mustardé and the Charity he founded, the International Reconstructive Plastic Surgery Project, now called Resurge Africa, who collaborated with the government and other stakeholders to establish the Accident and Burns Centre.
He lauded efforts of the Ghanaian team of reconstructive surgeons and support staff, led by Dr. Opoku Ware Ampomah, for their commitment, sacrifice and contribution to healthcare delivery in the country, as well as Dr. Martyn Webster and Dr. Stuart Watson, from Scotland, for supporting the Centre.
The Centre was put up as one of the semi-autonomous Centres of Excellence within the Korle-bu Teaching Hospital, with direct support from the Ministry of Health.
