Rikair Company Limited, a Ghanaian-owned company that deals in gases and medical equipment, has donated one AirSep NewLife Intensity Concentrator and a Sureflow device worth GH¢6, 400 to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
The Airsep Concentrator produces and can supply 24-hour oxygen for two adults at the same time. The other oxygen supply, Sureflow, is used for infants and can serve five patients at a go.
The Managing Director of Rikair, Nana Yaw Asare, said the presentation was part of their social responsibility to help Ghana’s health sector and promised that the company would support the hospital more in the future.
Receiving the equipment, the Acting Chief Executive Officer of Korle Bu, Prof Afua Hesse, said the equipment had arrived at the right time as the government was yet to install a new oxygen plant in the hospital.
She said the mobility of the equipment was ideal and could be used anywhere in the hospital. ‘This will augment the existing ones and supply quality oxygen for our patients’ use,’ she added.
Rikair Company Limited is a Ghanaian-owned company founded in 2001. Its aim is to become the leading supplier of the highest quality oxygen storage and generating systems to fill the growing needs in Ghana and the rest of West Africa. Its primary customers are health institutions, welding and mining companies.
