After the tour, Mrs. Matilda Amissah-Arthur said what she saw was an eye opener and was impressed.
The Second Lady used the occasion to call on corporate organisations to support the center.
Mrs. Amissah-Arthur said her coming to the Centre was a request by Father Campbell of the Christ the King Parish to come and visit and assist the facility, that trains patients how to use their orthopedic appliances and trained young people how to manufacture all the appliances needed by the physically challenged, leg braces, shoes, artificial limbs, splints, crutches, etc.
As a crusader for environmental cleanliness, she lauded the authorities for a wonderful job done on the neatness and cleanness of the facility and observing strict environmental cleanliness in the hospital.
She also visited the prosthetics and orthopedics education and training college, where she interacted with the principal Mr. Henry Larbi and students to acquaint herself how the school provides assertive devices for persons with physical and mobility disability and patients with orthopedic needs.
The administrator of the hospital used the opportunity to thank her for her kind gesture especially in the area of providing resources for quality health care delivery in the country and urged her to continue with her good works.
The Orthopedic Training Centre (OTC) was established by the Divine Word Missionaries in 1961.
The primary purpose of the Centre is the rehabilitation of the physically challenged in Ghana and people from other countries
