Otumfuo’s Heal Komfo Anokye Project: 40% Of Required Funds Raised In 7 Months

About 40 % of the $10 million needed for the Heal Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) project, a legacy project of the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has been realised.

This means some $4 million has so far been received. Managers of the project said the donations came from individuals, corporate institutions and identifiable groups.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, June 18, 2024, the Chairman of the Heal KATH Committee, Sammy Adu Boakye, published the names of 124 individuals, corporate institutions, and organisations that have made various donations.

He appealed to others who are yet to show their support for the project to donate toward a worthy cause. “This tells us that a lot more are yet to respond to the King’s call. We trust to hear from you, your company, your church, your club, old school, mosques etc” he stated.

On November 10, 2023, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, launched an initiative to mobilise $10 million for the renovation of KATH. Speaking at the event, Otumfuo said the project cannot wait for any government since many governments did not pay serious attention to the hospital. “I’ve been there twice all at midnight to inspect the hospital. I saw the sorry state it sits in. Why should the hospital suffer this fate if Komfo Anokye himself never got ill? So I promised to mobilize the needed funds for this project,” he said.
