The Jospong Group of Companies is set to support dialysis patients who cannot pay their bills at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital with more than GHS500,000.

This is part of the Group’s corporate social responsibility and thanksgiving to God for His unconditional mercies.

Group Chairman, Dr Joseph Siaw Agyepong, disclosed this on Thursday, December 7, 2023, during a Thanksgiving Service to climax the year 2023.

According to him, officials of the Group will work with the authorities at the Dialysis Centre at Korle Bu, Accra, in identifying patients who are financially handicapped and support them in the payment of their bills. 

Dr Agyepong prayed that the good Lord, who is a God of healing, will heal the sick, especially the dialysis patients, even as the company plays its part through cash support for their treatment.

In a sermon, the Guest Speaker, Apostle Kingsley Addai, of the Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC), Kokomlemle in Accra, underscored the value of thanksgiving in the life of every believer.

He praised the Jospong Group in acknowledging God as the sustainable source for the business over the years.

Apostle Addai prayed for unity among Ghanaian businessmen as they contributed their quota towards the development of the nation.

General Manager in-charge of Zoomlion Private Services Ltd, Mr Edwin Amoako, said the Group takes advantage of the annual thanksgiving service to win souls for Christ (draw people into the Christian faith) through street evangelism, as it also educates the public.

Dr Joseph Siaw Agyepong, after the thanksgiving service, led the workers on a street evangelism float wielding placards with gospel inscriptions, along some principal streets around the group’s operational headquarters located at Nmai Djourn in Accra in the Adentan Municipality.

Some of the inscriptions were 'Jesus is the way, the truth and the life', 'Come to Jesus', 'Heaven is real', 'Jesus: Na Him Be Oga', and 'In spite of your sins, Jesus still loves you'.

Other inscriptions read: 'He is with you until the end of time', 'Jesus is still in the miracle business', 'Jesus is ever ready to help you', 'Political intolerance: Seed for civil wars', among several other inscriptions.

For Muslim workers of the company, they are expected to join the National Chief Imam for Juma prayers on Friday, December 8, 2023, in thanksgiving to Allah for his mercies throughout the year.

Guests who attended the 2023 Jospong Group Thanksgiving service included the Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye; Areas Heads of the church, pastors and their wives, among several others
