Togbe Afede XIV, Agbogbomefia of Asogli State, has donated sanitizers and GH¢100,000.00 to two hospitals in Ho in the fight against Coronavirus pandemic in Ghana
The National House of Chiefs President donated GH¢60,000 to the Ho Teaching Hospital and GH¢40,000 to the Ho Municipal Hospital.
He said the exercise is to help the hospitals fight against the Coronavirus pandemic which keep spreading in the country.
Aside the cash, the Board Chairman of Ghana Premier League giant Hearts of Oak donated 2,200 hand sanitizers to the two hospitals and communities in the Asogli state.
He entreated traditional authorities to champion environmental cleanliness and ensured that their subjects obeyed health protocols from the World Health Organization and directives from President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
He commended the hospitals for their efforts so far in combating the disease and urged them to remain focused.
He also called for the protection of vulnerable, especially the aged in society and underscored the need for the country to learn valuable lessons from the pandemic to be self-reliant.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Ho Teaching Hospital Dr. John Tampouri said the Volta Region was lucky not to have recorded any case yet and described the gesture as timely, saying the Hospital could not sustain the expenditure of GH¢240.00 daily on tissue paper for hand washing at the facility and called for more support.
Dr. Lawrence Kumi, Medical Superintendent, Ho Municipal Hospital, expressed gratitude to Togbe Afede and assured that the support would be put to good use.
