World Vision Ghana has again shown its commitment in aiding government towards reducing the spread of the novel coronavirus in the country.
The Christian humanitarian organization working to promote transformational development among the most vulnerable, has again donated some personal protection equipment worth US$ 8, 431 to 43 units in the Kassena-Nankana West District of the Upper East region.
Since the declaration of Covid-19 as a pandemic which calls for a collective effort at eradicating it, the non-profit organization in March this year donated PPEs worth US$ 3, 000 to Talensi, Kassena-Nankana West and the Builsa South district respectively.
As a matter of urgency in the fight against the spread of the virus, World Vision Ghana has again donated another consignment of PPES to 43 units in the Kassena-Nankana West district.
“I am happy today to inform you that, through the support of donors, World Vision is having the second consignment of PPEs to donate to facilities in the Kassena-Nankana West district to help fight the pandemic. Basically, the facilities include hand washing equipment and they are special types. This one doesn’t use the hand, so we are trying to avoid contacts of the user with the facility at any given time. So, they are supposed to be meant for use through the leg. You will use your leg and step on it and the water will gush out for washing and at the end, there will be minimal contact with the facility to prevent contamination”.
The Talensi Cluster Programs Manager of World Vision Ghana, Robert Pwazaga said this in Sirigu as he handed over the items to official of the Kassena-Nankana West district assembly.
The beneficiary units includes, health facilities, decentralized units, chief palaces, market squares, churches, mosques, abattoirs among others.
The items donated were 50 pieces of improved hand washing equipment, 11 pieces of thermometer gun, 48 packets of surgical gloves, 80 packets of nose mask, 50 gallons of liquid soap and 264 pieces of hand sanitizer.
Mr. Pwazaga while calling on the public to continue adhering to all the Covid-19 protocols indicated that, “as World Vision remains committed to the fight against Covid-19 in Ghana”, similar presentation will be made in the Builsa South geared towards eradicating the virus.
Tahiru Mohammed Salifu who received the items on behalf of the Kassena-Nankana West District Coordinating Director thanked World Vision Ghana for the support.
