The group donated medical supplies to Komfo Anokye University Hospital to help treat patients.
Articles include; wheelchairs, mattresses, crutches, ventilation tubes, among others.
The president of the Ghana Nurses Association, Dallas Texas, USA, Aba Amprofi Helm said the items donated would alleviate the hardships faced by the hospital.
The General Manager of Komfo Anokye University Hospital, Dr Oheneba Owusu Danso, congratulated the group on the donation.
He called for more support from Ghanaians, however.
“The group came with a 40ft container full of medical supplies and we really appreciate it.
“If you look at our operations, ideally every bed is supposed to have a monitor and these are very expensive machines.
“We buy a lot of monitors, but unfortunately they break down easily and replacing them is a challenge,” he said.
