Ampomah is one of many Black Stars players who have gone beyond social media campaigns to donate items in aid of the battle against the virus.
The gesture to the hospital where Ampomah was brought forth also demonstrates his appreciation to the hospital and all health officials at the frontline of the fight.
The management of the hospital expressed gratitude to the player.
