The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Alumni Association has donated drugs to the Ayeduase Community Clinic in Kumasi.

They included pain killers, malaria drugs, cough syrup, dietary supplements, blood tonic and among others.

The Clinic, which records an average of about 25 Out-Patient-Department (OPD) attendances per day, serves more than 10 communities.

It provides eye healthcare and general OPD services, family planning, antenatal, child welfare, deliveries and community outreach programmes.

Mrs. Harriet Kingsley Annan, Global General-Secretary of the Association, said the Association chose the Clinic because of its strategic location in healthcare delivery and appealed to corporate bodies to assist the clinic.

Mr. Festus Nyame, KNUST Alumni Coordinator, said the donation formed part of activities marking the Eight Biennial Congress of the Association.

The Association, he said, had since last year been going on medical outreach programmes in nearby communities such as Kotei, Ayeduase and Deduako.

Ms. Mavis Biritwum, the Kumasi Metropolitan Pharmacists, who received the drugs on behalf of the Clinic, thanked the Association for the donation.
