Starlife Assurance in partnership with GPCC Donates Medical Supplies to 10 Maternity Facilities in Honour of Mother’s Day

Starlife Assurance has made a significant contribution to improving maternal and infant healthcare in Ghana by donating medical supplies to ten maternity facilities across the country in celebration of Mother’s Day.

This initiative underscores Starlife Assurance’s commitment to positively impacting lives through social responsibility.

The beneficiary health facilities, which are mission hospitals affiliated with the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), include Pentecost Hospital Madina, Assemblies of God Hospital in Saboba, Kings Medical Centre in Bontanga, Global Evangelical Hospital in Apromase, Bryant Mission Hospital in Obuasi, Siloam Hospital in Kasoa, Manna Mission Hospital in Teshie, and Pentecost Hospital in Donkorkrom. Others are Siloam Hospital, Obuasi, and Pentecost Hospital, Tarkwa.

The donated items, which encompassed disinfectants, liquid soaps, fetoscopes, bed sheets, gauze rolls, infusion sets, kidney dishes, scales, tissues, thermometers, and detergents, are designed to support maternal and infant healthcare and enhance service delivery within these hospitals.

Additionally, some hospitals received cheques to help clear the bills of mothers who had delivered but were still in the facility due to financial constraints.


During the presentation at Pentecost Hospital in Madina, Mrs. Mercy Simpson Jiagge, Brand and Communications Manager of Starlife Assurance, emphasized the company’s dedication to social impact. “At Starlife, as part of our social impact initiatives, we select occasions like Mother’s Day to visit hospitals, donate items, and support mothers financially. This year, our partnership with the GPCC led us to visit hospitals affiliated with member churches,” she explained.

The Brand and Communication Manager disclosed that the total cost of the donations was about GHS100,000, distributed based on the number of beds in each hospital.

She mentioned that, the initiative aimed to lessen the financial burden on these health facilities and enhance the quality of care provided to mothers and infants.

Mrs Jiagge noted  that this gestures by Starlife Assurance and GPCC reflects a broader commitment to corporate social responsibility, emphasizing the importance of supporting communities and improving healthcare infrastructure.


Receiving the items, Dr. Emmanuel Kafui, the Deputy Clinical Coordinator for Pentecost Hospital, expressed gratitude to the donors stating as follows: “We want to say a big thank you to Starlife Assurance for thinking of us and our mothers. Their support is invaluable, and we hope this relationship continues to grow.”

He emphasized that this support would greatly benefit the facility and encouraged other companies to follow suit with similar gestures.

In a sideline interview with GPCC News, Apostle Immanuel Tettey, General Secretary of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), highlighted the significance of the donations. “Pentecost Hospital is owned by The Church of Pentecost which is one of the founding member churches of GPCC. This initiative was not exclusive to Pentecost Hospital; we extended support to some GPCC member church health facilities across the country. This partnership with Starlife Assurance has been very impactful.”
