LISTEN APR 21, 2020

The Community Development Alliance (CDA) a non-governmental organization in the Atebubu-Amantin municipality has donated 5 veronica buckets to the assembly to help in the fight against the covid-19 pandemic.

The NGO that runs the Ghana Strengthening Accountability Mechanism GSAM project within the municipality is a consortium made up of IBISS, CARE, and ISODEC sponsored by the United States Agency for International Development USAID.

Making the presentation the project coordinator for GSAM Mr. Kunja Zakariya said his outfit is aware of the enormity of the problems the pandemic poses hence the decision to offer the support.

The Atebubu-Amantin municipal chief executive Hon. Edward Owusu who received the items praised the CDA for being the first NGO in the municipality to assist the assembly in the fight against the disease and asked others to emulate the example.

He said the fight against covid-19 requires huge resources which the government alone cannot shoulder hence the need for private sector support.

Present were the municipal coordinating director Hajia Fati Saaka and the planning officer Mr. Thomas Atibilla.
