Teachers in the Volta region affiliated to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) – NPP Teachers Network, has donated some items to the Ketu South Municipal Health Directorate in support of COVID-19 fight.
The items included 25 disposable towels, four boxes of alcohol-based hand sanitizers, gallons of liquid soap, six-packs of disposable hand gloves, and 50 pieces of locally-made nose masks.
Mr Frank Donkor, Regional Coordinator of the Network said the gesture would be extended to other districts in the Region to complement the government’s efforts of providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to health facilities.
“We appreciate what government is doing in areas of provision of PPE and because some of these things are discarded after a single use, we thought it wise to put ourselves together and contribute something to complement efforts of government with the hope that it helps in the fight against this COVID-19,” he said.
Mr Joseph Kwami Degley, Municipal Director of Health Services for Ketu South was grateful for the donation.
“We want to thank you for your donation. I’m pretty sure the Parliamentary Candidate knows why he wants you to start from here. I can say that we have contributed to half of the entire cases in the Volta Region so, it’s very timely that you’re here to donate these items to us,” he said.
Mr Degley said, “we have supplies from our employers, that’s the Ghana Health Service and we continue to receive donations from philanthropists like your group and I always say that these items are given to us for the betterment of the clients who come to us and also to prevent us from getting the virus and so, we’ll use them for the purpose for which you brought them.”
