Otumfuo Osei Tutu II addressed the guests and audiences present at the fundraiser. He urged the people of Asanteman and dignitaries to help in the renovation of the old wards as the hospital is home to Ghanaians from several regions. He also promised to donate to the renovation of one block unit and urged the other dignitaries to follow suit.
Otumfuo Osei Tutu II had proposed the initiative early in August with an initial goal to raise 10 million dollars to help in the renovation of KATH.
Meanwhile, Nana Tepamanhene set a great example by showing his love for humanity and proving himself as a true son of Asanteman.
