The Princess Marie Louise Children’s Hospital has commemorated its 99th anniversary by launching the “Friends of Princess Marie Louise Children’s Hospital Initiative,” a groundbreaking effort aimed at rallying community support to enhance the hospital’s services and impact.

Founded on June 24, 1925, when Princess Marie Louise, granddaughter of Queen Victoria, laid its foundation stone, the hospital began as a nutritional rehabilitation center. Over nearly a century, it has evolved into a beacon of hope and healing for children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, with the ultimate goal being to prioritize the well-being of every child and make the necessary sacrifices to secure a brighter future for them.

Despite its critical role and government funding, the hospital faces ongoing challenges in meeting the rising demands of its patient population. The new initiative seeks to address these challenges by fostering a network of individuals and organizations committed to ensuring that every child receives exceptional care.

The launch of the Friends of Princess Marie Louise Children’s Hospital Initiative marks a significant milestone in the hospital’s history. The hospital used the opportunity to call on the corporate sector and the public to join this vital cause and contribute to make a profound difference in the lives of children.

The initiative is designed to garner support through donations and partnerships, which are crucial for the hospital to continue providing high-quality healthcare and help bridge the funding gap, thereby enhancing the hospital’s ability to serve its community effectively.

The Friends of Princess Marie Louise Children’s Hospital Initiative aims to secure a lasting legacy of healthcare excellence, ensuring that the hospital remains a cornerstone of pediatric care in Ghana for generations to come.
