As part of efforts to assist government in the fight against the Novel Coronavirus, the Church of Pentecost in partnership with Tobinco Pharmaceuticals has donated personal protective logistics worth GHS 45,000.00 to the Ministry of Health (MoH) in support of efforts by the Government in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic in Ghana, a Facebook post by the Church said.
The items, which include coveralls, nose masks, N95 Respirators, face shields, goggles, aprons, examination gloves, heavy-duty gloves, gumboots, and hand sanitizers, among others, were presented to the Deputy Health Minister, Hon. Alexander Kodwo Kom Abban, by the Chairman of the church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, on Tuesday, March 24, 2020.
The offer was made at a strategic meeting with directors of nursing and midwifery institutions in the country held at the national office of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Ghana (NM&C) in Accra.
Meanwhile, the Church has also made available 10 vans to the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) to intensify its education on the COVID-19 pandemic across the country.
The vans, fitted with public address systems, were officially handed over to the Deputy Minister of Health, Alexander Kodwo Kom Abban, on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Church and the NCCE.
