On Friday, December 30, Stonebwoy spent some time with children admitted to the Child Health/Pediatric Unit of Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital to celebrate Catherine Jidula, his daughter, turning five (5) years old.
Through his non-governmental charity organization The Livingstone Foundation (TLF), the internationally acclaimed musician, and Dr. Louisa Ansong-Satekla, his wife and renowned dental surgeon, used the occasion to pay the medical expenses for some patients as well as donate supplies worth thousands of cedis, such as kids’ hygiene products (soaps, diapers, wipes, etc.), packs of bottle water, drinks, hand sanitizers, boxes of biscuits, and other assorted items to the child health unit.
The foundation also hosted a dinner for Catherine Jidula, known as CJ, at the medical centre with kids, including their parents, in attendance. The kids, who were thrilled to dine with Stonebwoy, Dr. Louisa and the entire staff from the charity, were also given special birthday gifts by CJ.
“We’re here to celebrate with the children here at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital because it’s my daughter’s 5th birthday,” said Stonebwoy, founder of The Livingstone Foundation. “It gives me a lot of joy to see children, for whom we can all be fathers and relatives to. I am privileged and honoured to be able to spend this short moment with them.”
“God bless the matrons, doctors, nurses, and the team at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital who have dedicated their time to serve the people. Let us lend a helping hand to our brothers and sisters who are sacrificing their lives to serve our children,” he said, urging well-meaning people to support and appreciate health professionals.
Director of The Livingstone Foundation Dr. Louisa Ansong-Satekla added: “We decided to come here and spend time with the kids because it’s the holiday season and it’s really unfortunate that they can’t celebrate with their families at home. So, we decided to come here and put some smiles on their faces, including their parents.”
She continued, “I would like to use this moment to ask everyone to reach out to patients at any medical facility across the nation whose parents are having trouble paying hospital expenses.
Matron at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Child Health/Paediatric Unit, who received the donation, expressed her sincere gratitude to Stonebwoy, Dr. Louisa, CJ and the entire Livingstone Foundation for being thoughtful during this festive season and hope to see them often. “We thank you for being thoughtful about us. We thank you for choosing our place to spend the festive season with the kids. We are so much overwhelmed with these items and hope to see you often,” she said.
