The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, made a passionate appeal to various households in the Ashanti Region to donate GH¢200 a month towards the renovation of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH).
The project dubbed ‘Heal Komfo Anokye’ is being spearheaded by the King to mobilize $10 million to renovate the 70-year-old facility.
Within minutes of the overlord of the Ashanti land’s appeal, Ashantis both home and abroad spoke.
According to The Asante Nation, a social media handle affiliated with the Manhyia Palace, millions of Ghana cedis were received from Ghanaians both home and abroad an hour after the Otumfuo’s appeal.
A list of the contributions made shared by Asante Nation on X showed the likes of the Member of Parliament (MP)
