The GNPC Foundation on Thursday March 26, 2020 has donated Veronica buckets, sanitizers, soaps among others to two hospitals in the Western region.
The Foundation, serving as the Corporate Social Investment arm of GNPC, has begun a campaign to support the government fight against the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic by donating hygienic logistics to Ghanaians to protect themselves from the disease.
The Foundation recently donated to traders at the various markets in the Western region alongside other institutions, and on today donated to the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital and the European Hospital in Takoradi of the Western region as part of their campaign to fight against the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic in Ghana.
The two hospitals received from the GNPC Foundation Veronica buckets with hand washing basins, gallons of liquid soaps, boxes of hand sanitizers and tissue paper.
The Executive Director of the GNPC Foundation, Dr. Dominic Eduah, lauded the role of the hospitals and health professionals across the country at the forefront of the fight against pandemic.
“We’re all in this together and every effort counts; from governmental level to the last citizen and we all must heed to the standard protocols of good hygiene and social distancing as much as possible to curb the spread of the virus,” he said.
Rev Osei Boateng, who is the Administrator of the Takoradi Hospital, said “though the Western Region has not recorded any cases, this gesture remains a timely one as a number of measures are being put in place to hopefully forestall any occurrences.”
He further stated that the hospital lacked nose masks and other protective gears for its frontline staff and asked for support from corporate entities to assist in procuring them. He thanked the GNPC Foundation and assured that the items will be put to its intended use.
The GNPC Foundation looks forward to extending similar support to other regions in due course, Kyfilla.com understands.
