The unpredictable Ghanaian Lawmaker, Mr. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has set a new record in the country as he has donated all donations received during his late Father’s funeral to Battor Catholic Hospital.
According to known records, this is the first time ever in the History of Ghana where the family of a deceased, who received gifts and donations from sympathizers and beloved ones to support them during their sorrowful moments as a way of consoling them, but have decided to rather re-donate all collections received to a Hospital to support the needy.
The Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency, who also doubles as the Ranking Member on Foreign Affairs has demonstrated his generosity and kind gestures towards his constituents and beyond over the years and there’s no doubt about it.
According to Mr. Ablakwa, consistent with his family’s announcement at the funeral and memorial service of his late Father, they were at the Battor Catholic Hospital, at the District Capital of North Tongu earlier today to donate all collections received for the family during the service.
Mr. Ablakwa’s Father late Mr. Theophilus Brown Kisseh Okudzeto who passed on to glory during the early hours of Thursday, July 1, 2021 was finally laid to rest on Saturday, 14th August, 2021 at Aveyime-Battor in the North Tongu District of the Volta Region. It was in this connection that, the MP and his family showed their kind generosity to the Hospital.
The Member of Parliament says he is hopeful that the donation to the Hospital would help vulnerable patients in need of financial support.
