The Ho Teaching Hospital in the Volta region has taken delivery of some COVID-19 relief items including personal protective items from the Volta Union UK/Europe.
The items included; 2,500 pieces of face masks, 4,000 hand gloves, and 500 pieces of 65 ml hand sanitizers.
Togbui Patamia IV, Chief of Srogboe and the country representative of the Union who presented the items said they were motivated by the desire to contribute to the fight against the coronavirus that had taken the world by storm.
He was hopeful that the gestures would help solve some teething challenges in the hospital.
Dr. John Tampouri, acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Hospital, who received the items was grateful to the Union for the support, adding that it came at the time they needed it most.
He said even though coronavirus figures had reduced significantly, there was the need to increase protection for the public by observing the COVID-19 safety protocols.
Dr. Tampouri was optimistic that observance of the safety protocols would tremendously impact positively to the eradication of the disease in the country.
He was also hopeful that others would follow suit to complement the government's effort in the fight against the disease.
Mr. Courage Dezanga, the Manager of Cleansafe Sanitizer, produced locally in Ho by Dezang Ventures, said they were committed to supporting the region in the production of local PPEs.
