“We owe food contractors as at now, they have all stopped coming, it is left with only one contractor who is feeling for us and he is assisting us…but we also owe him, and he is threatening to stop and I understand he even wants to drag us to court".
According to Pappoe, there is also shortage of drugs at the facility making it difficult to deal with the patients.
“The drugs are not forthcoming though we have some but that cannot last for long, as at now we have been buying the drugs and without the drugs they [patients] cannot exist, we cannot nurse them”.
He added that the hospital is now depending on the little donations to mitigate the impacts of the challenges bedeviling it.
Mr. Pappoe made this known when the Devine Mother and Child Foundation, a Koforidua based NGO in collaboration with Joy Industries, donated items such as toiletries, second hand clothes and other items worth GHc3000 to the Hospital on Monday.
