The nursing mothers and their babies had recovered from their sickness but could not afford the bills presented to them.

Some of the mothers were presented with medical bills of as much as GHC 6,000.00.

Executive Director of the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Foundation, Nana Afia Kobi Serwaa Ampem Prempeh said, the gesture falls within the foundation’s thematic area which focuses on free healthcare support for less privileged people.

The nursing mothers in detention in the facility commended the management of the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II foundation for facilitating their release from the facility.

The Chief executive of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital Dr. Oheneba Owusu-Danso appealed to the corporate institutions and Philanthropists to come to the aid of other persons in detention in the facility.

He said the management of the hospital is not comfortable with the detention policy but the situation calls for it.
