Let's Support Govt Fight Against COVID-19 — NGO's To Ghanaians
Two Non-governmental Organizations, Center for Indigenous Knowledge and Organizational Development (CIKOD) and Abrono Organic Farming Project (ABOFP) have appealed to the general public to strictly observe government's directive on social distancing, washing of hands under running water, and proper hand sanitizing in order not to contract the deadly virus.
The Executive Director of Center for Indigenous Knowledge and Organizational Development, Mr Bernard Guri indicated that the fight against the pandemic is a global issue hence all hands should be on deck in the fight against the virus.
Meanwhile, the Executive Director of Abrono Organic Farming Project (ABOFP) with the headquarters at Forikrom in the Techiman North district in the Bono East region who doubles as the Twafohene in the Forikrom traditional council Nana Kwao Adams lamented that due to the ban imposed on social activities communities are widely affected.
He advised Nananom to do whatever it takes to educate their people how to go by the rules and regulations needed to prevent the virus indicating that without people leadership is nothing.
He added that farmers are in a hectic need of laborers but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, laborers are no longer traveling to assist them with their services in farms which prompted the two NGO's, CIKOD and ABOFAP to train people how to protect themselves against the disease
The Medical Director at the Forikrom health Centre, Mr Louis Amoako Yeboah tasked Ghanaians to wear nose masks and observe the social distance protocols as well as stay home.
