AGI donates PPE, GH¢10,000 to VRCC

The Eastern, Volta and Oti Regional branches of the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) has donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) worth GH¢11,000 and a cheque for GH¢10,000 to the Volta Regional Coordinating Council (VRCC) to support in the fight against coronavirus (COVID-19) in the region.

The items comprised paper towels, surgical masks, gloves, liquid soap, hand sanitisers, bottle water, drinks, infrared thermometers, bread and re-usable masks.

Handing over the PPEs to the VRCC on Wednesday, the Regional Vicechairman of AGI, Madam Lucy Tenkorang said the donation was made to help the region curb the spread of COVID-19.

The Volta Regional Minister, Dr Archibald Yao Letsa, who received the items, thanked AGI for supporting the fight against the disease in the region.

He assured that all items and the money donated would be put to good use at the treatment centre.

 

Dr Letsa appealed to other organisations, groups and individuals to support the region with money and PPE to curb the spread and also treat people at the treatment centre.

“We need support from everybody no matter how small it is, we will appreciate it,” he added.

He said that when samples were taken to Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research, it took one week before results were released but with the UHAS testing centre it took only three hours.

He appealed to restaurants in the Ho municipality to cook for people at the testing centre, adding “By doing this we are motivating those who are spending hours doing the testing for us.”
