Ghana’s biggest telecom MTN has supported a donation of PPE to healthcare workers at the Kumasi south hospital in the Ashanti Region.
A team from the Northern Business District in the company led by the acting General Manager Mr. Simon Amoh to frontlines in a presentation on September 10 noted the important role the Kumasi South Hospital had played during the COVID -19 breaks.
According to him, it is imperative for every institution to support the staff and workers to deliver care and treatment to persons who are brought and admitted at the facility. He disclosed that MTN recognizes the pivotal role Kumasi South Hospital has and continues to play during the outbreak of COVID-19.
Mr. Simon Amoh in his submissions recalls MTN’s commitment to government and the Ministry of health since the viral disease hit the country by donating 44, 000 personal protective equipment (PPE) and PCR machines to the national COVID-19 Trust Fund edging stakeholders and various telecommunications networks to support Government initiative in the Fight against COVID-19.
In appreciation of the donation, Dr. Angela Durowaah Frimpong who took delivery of the nose mask from MTN officials express gratitude to their gesture. She indicated the hospital had received some supplies since the outbreak of Covid-19 but most of which are consumable by staff and workers who worked on about 80 Covid-19 cases referred to the hospital for treatment.
“We are grateful for the support from MTN and we urge other benevolent to do same so as to have a greater stock of consumables to attend to persons who visit our hospital”.
