Svani Group limited, a leading automobile and logistics company in Ghana, donated a 33-seater Volvo Eicher bus to the FOCOS Orthopaedic Hospital, on Friday, January 25, 2019, at its facility in Pantang.
At a short ceremony, Chairman of Svani Group Thomas Svanikier together with two dignitaries from the Group made the presentation to the CEO and Board Members of FOCOS.
The CEO of FOCOS, Prof. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei, in his speech commended Mr. Svanikier for donating the bus to ease the transportation burdens of staff at the hospital.
“FOCOS is not my hospital, it’s our hospital and anyone who comes in and does a great deed for us, we appreciate it. We thank you very much for your donation and we hope that you will also appreciate what we are going to do with it. We will make sure we take good care of it and our staff really thank you.”
Explaining the rationale behind his donation Mr. Thomas Svanikier said, “It’s always good to give and fortunately we have sold a lot of these buses to the Ministry of Education and churches without any complications”.
He also made a commitment to donate two additional Pick-Up trucks to the hospital to support its operations by the end of the year.
The Medical Director of FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital, Dr. Joseph Ogyaadu, and one of the Board of Directors at FOCOS, Roland Akosah, also expressed their gratitude to Mr. Svanikier and the Svani Group for their act of generosity.
