See List of Donors for Asantehene’s Heal KATH Project

The Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) has published the names of 124 corporate institutions, organisations and individuals who have contributed to give a facelift to the facility which has been in place for seven decades.

The highest donors as it stands now include Justmoh Constructions Limited, Joshop Construction Limited, Fidelity Bank, Life Ally Ghana, Scancom Ghana PLC, Oak Plaza Hotels, Bost Company Limited, Church of Christ, Prophet Kofi Amponsah and Olam Food.

In total, GHC14,240,645.15 has been donated by these groups and individuals, per the information posted by the Chairman of the Heal KATH Committee, Mr Sammy Adu Boakye.

In a Facebook post, he drew attention to the project and called on all who had not yet shown their support to do so.

“This tells us that a lot more are yet to respond to the King’s call. We trust to hear from you, your company , your church, your club, old school, mosques etc. The list of momo donors are all on the website Should there be any omissions, pls feel free to revert to the team. #Ourhospitalourresponsibility#”

The Heal KATH project is a US10 million revenue mobilization drive being championed by the King of the Asante Kingdom, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, in the quest to renovate the dilapidated structure of the second-largest hospital and the only tertiary health institution in the Ashanti Region.

The hospital, since its construction in 1954, has been deprived of any enhanced renovation, leaving it in a sorry state.

After 70 years of its existence with successive governments passing through the years, none made it a point to attend to it.

At the launch of the Heal KATH Project in November 2023, the Chief Executive officer of the hospital, Prof Otchere Addai-Mensah, disclosed the agenda to renovate the hospital had been on its radar for a long time but had to be shelved due to lack of funds.

Already, the renovation work is ongoing; however, there is a need for more funds as less than 40% of the US$10 million has been raised.
