COVID-19 Private Trust Fund Ends Feed-A-Kayayo Project; Sets Focus On Frontline Workers
The Ghana COVID-19 Private Sector Trust Fund (GCPSFund) has ended its Feed-A-Kayayo Project and is now turning attention to resourcing and protecting frontline workers who are leading the fight against the disease in the country.
The Project which commenced on April 1, 2020, sought to provide a meal a day for head porters (Kayaye) and other underprivileged persons during the period of lockdown imposed by the government as one of the measures to curb the spread of the COVID-19.
Through the 12-day period put aside by the GCPSFund to support the head potters and the underprivileged, kind donors from all works of life extended helping hands to ensure the project was successful.
Announcing the end to the project, the Ghana COVID-19 Private Sector Trust Fund in a statement has thanked everyone who sacrificed their resources.
“To our donors, this has only been possible because you turned up for Ghana. You are the reason why many kept smiles and held hope for the past 12 days. We urge all to continue to support the Ghana COVID-19 Private Fund to provide a prompt response in the fights against COVID-19”, the statement signed by the Managing Trustee of the Fund, Mr. Senyo Hosi said.
The Fund is now turning its attention to frontline workers who are leading the fight against the Coronavirus disease in Ghana.
The new projects will include, feed-the-frontline, protect and resource the frontline, together with the construction of a 100-bed isolation and treatment facility at the GA Hospital which serves as the national COVID-19 Treatment Center.
