The Suhum Area of The Church of Pentecost has donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) worth GH¢ 10,000.00 to the Nsawam and Kibi Government Hospitals to aid the country’s fight against COVID-19.
The items, which include nose masks, hand sanitizers, veronica buckets, and liquid soap, were presented to the facilities by the Area Head, Apostle Anthony Eghan Kwesi Ekuban, on Monday, April 27, 2020.
In an interview with PENTECOST NEWS, Apostle Ekuban expounded that the intervention by the church was aimed at augmenting the Government’s effort in combating the spread of the viral disease.
He urged Ghanaians to adhere to the preventive measures that have been announced by the World Health Organization (WHO) such as social distancing, handwashing with soap under running water, and the wearing of nose mask.
Receiving the items on behalf of the Nsawam Government Hospital, the Hospital Administrator, Mr. Konlan Kofi, was grateful to the church for the thoughtful gesture, saying, “The Church of Pentecost is the first organisation to donate PPEs to this hospital since the outbreak of COVID-19.”
The Medical Superintendent of the Kibi Government Hospital, Dr. Richard Nii Darko Dodoo, who received the PPEs on behalf of the facility, expressed his profound gratitude to the church for the benevolence. He was hopeful that the items will help the hospital in the fight against the deadly disease.
Present to witness the presentation of the items at the Kibi Government Hospital was the Abuakwa South Municipal Health Director, Mrs. Augustina Nartey
