Ho Area Donates PPEs To Ho Teaching Hospital To Fight COVID-19 Pandemic

The Ho Area of The Church of Pentecost, under the leadership of Apostle Moses Kwame Ahiakor, has donated some Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) to the Ho Teaching Hospital to support the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Presenting the items on March 27, 2020, at the hospital, Apostle Ahiakor expressed his pleasure at the commitment level of the staff of the hospital to their profession. He commended them for the effort and the measures they have put in place to fight the outbreak of the disease should it occur in the region.

“As part of our social responsibility to ensure the safety of our church members and the general public, we have decided to present these items to help complement the efforts of the government and the hospital in fighting this novel pandemic which has become a threat to our very existence,” he said.

The items worth GHS 4,000.00 include 1,200 pieces of hand gloves, 12 gallons of hand sanitizers, 70 pieces of small bottled hand sanitizers and 140 pieces of nose masks.

Apostle Moses Ahiakor charged all health workers to be more careful with their safety in the course of discharging their professional duties.

The Area Head in a clarion call to the general public admonished all to take into consideration measures and directives issued by the World Health Organization and the Ghana Health Service to avoid being infected by the virus.

Receiving the items, Dr. John Tampouri, the Chief Executive Officer of the hospital, expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the church for the swift response. He promised to put the items to good use.

“We look up to God and the general public for support such as this and request from other institutions and philanthropies to emulate this kind gesture by The Church of Pentecost to support the health facilities to combat this war against humanity,” he said.

He added: “The war has not reached us yet in the Volta Region as at now, but it is good to get prepared ahead of it. Unfortunately, nobody budgeted for such an outbreak just like any other unforeseen situation. The biggest issue is how to contain this pandemic should it go beyond the normal level.”

Among the senior staff of the hospital present were Dr. Lord Mensah, Pastor Antony Oduro, and Dr. Simon Dzokoto.
