Accra - Four Hospitals in Ghana (Kumasi, Axim and Saboba); two communities in Axim, three Don Guanella Institutes (Good Samaritan Home for adolescents with intellectual disabilities in Adidome, St. Theresa Center for the Handicapped in Abor, St Agnes Vocational Training Institute in Weme), two Dom Bosco communities (in Tema and Sunyani), are all benefitting from a number of supplies just arrived in Ghana into four containers sent from Italy. The man behind this substantial donating operation is an Italian philanthropist who works at the Embassy in Accra, Enrico Biasutti, who is using his spare time and holidays to help people in need around the country. 

Enrico Biasutti, sponsored by 'Futuro Per Tutti' (Future for All) an Italian based NGO, has donated to the Nkosuohene, the Development Chief of Lower Axim Traditional Area, Nana Osei Nkwantabisa, 48 modern hospital beds and other medical equipment to the health sector, especially to the Axim Government Hospital of the Nzema East Municipality of the Western Region. Other medical equipment includes disposable gloves, X-ray Viewer machine and a baby court to the maternity ward. The consignment also includes didactic teaching and learning materials, clothes, toys and kids' shoes, which is scheduled to be distributed to some selected nursery and primary schools within the municipality by the office of the Nkosuohene.
The donors, all contacted by Enrico Biasutti in person, are two Hospitals in Treviso, a Clinic in Monastier, and the International School of Treviso and Liceo Classico Canova and the Istituto Alberghiero Cipriano in Rovigo. 

Presenting the equipment in a mini durbar held at the hospital premises, Mr. Enrico Biasutti highlighted that the exercise was huge since it was focused on complementing the challenges faced by the hospital. He added that the gesture was necessitated when he first visited the chiefs and people of Axim to celebrate the 2017 annual Kundum festival and decided to partner with the office of the Lower Axim Development Chief to herald the developmental agenda of the area.
In the two containers that are still at the port of Tema there are medical ultrasounds, disinfect machines for surgical instruments, computers, four dentist chairs, clothing, games, school supplies, sports attires donated by Diadora.

Later next year Enrico Biasutti worked hard with the help of the Embassy to raise money to build a new female ward in the Adidome Good Samaritan home, already finished and he by himself sent more than 500 pairs of eyeglasses for vision correction in Kumasi's Hospital and in Togo. Already on the go under his attentive direction is a Vaccination Campaign with Health-Aid Onlus in Saboba scheduled for August this year and a charity fashion show and dinner to raise money for the Italian Ngo Chicchi di Caffe' where an Italian Physiotherapist, Simona Branca, hosts deprived and handicapped abandoned kids in Kwamoso, off the capital city Accra.
