The donation, which was received by the Chief of Staff, Frema Opare, on behalf of the COVID-19 Fund secretariat, was presented by the Lebanese Ambassador to Ghana, Maher Kheir.

At a brief ceremony to hand over the contribution, His Excellency Maher Kheir underscored the cordial relations between Ghana and the people of Lebanon.

“I don’t know how we can express our gratitude to Ghana, a generous country, we have lived here and become a part of the Ghanaian society’s fabric. Today, we are here to affirm our commitment that we are together as one people under all conditions” Maher Kheir asserted.

Frema Opare, Chief of Staff, who received the contribution from the Lebanese community expressed government’s commitment to utilising the funds judiciously for the intended purpose.

The Lebanese community’s donation to the fund adds to the growing support being received from private, public organisations and entities in the country heeding to the President’s call for voluntary contribution into the Fund.
