Items donated, consisted of food stuff and toiletries including sugar, bags of rice, beans, maize, cooking oil, adult diapers, packs of bottled water, mattress and detergents.

The company also repainted parts of the hospital and held a nine lessons and carols service for the patients.

The Managing Director of Serene Insurance Limited, Mercy Kodie Boampong, expressed her commitment to the humanitarian cause saying that the company firmly believed in the positive impact of giving back to society and improving lives.

“Mental health is crucial to our overall well-being, and it is our duty to ensure that those who are on the path to recovery receive the love, compassion, and assistance they require.

“Let us remember that each act of kindness, no matter how small, has the potential to transform lives and make our world a better place,” she noted.

First Sky Group Chairman, Eric Seddy Kutortse speaking at the carols service said the best one can give out this Christmas is the love of God.

He noted that often during the holidays, families come together, organise parties and fun times leaving the vulnerable and poor in society.

Mr. Kutortse therefore lauded Serene Insurance for the decision to host its annual carols service at the facility.

He also announced that the staff of the company would be contributing one percent of their salary towards the building of a new water and sanitation facility for the patients at the hospital.

Specialist Psychiatrist at the Accra Psychiatrist Hospital, Naa Adoley Botchway who received the items on behalf of the patients commended the efforts of the company.

“They are the population that often feels neglected, stigmatized and marginalized, so it really means a lot to our patients and administrative staff that someone will make time out of their Christmas season in their Christmas program and come and share this wonderful event with us,” she said.
