They were later joined by the Chief Executive Officer of the hospital, Dr. Oheneba Owusu-Danso.

Packages of food were also given out to mothers at KATH’s MBU, Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and Paediatric Emergency Unit (PEU) where it was announced that the Asantehemaa hoped to make the act an annual activity.
The CEO Of the KATH after joining the ride to distribute the package of foods to the various units expressed immense gratitude to the Asantehemaa.
The Queenmothers found their way to the Manhyia District Hospital from KATH, where they were received by the hospital’s Nurse Manager, Gladys Abban, the Medical Superintendent, Dr. K.K. Hussein, and the Paediatrician Specialist, Dr. Catherine Tetteh.
Items were given out to mothers whose babies had been admitted.
