“Corona Virus transcends everything and every people. In Ghana, for us, we have to religiously and meticulously plan, prepare, prevent and pray passionately, patiently and persevere to avert this disease.”
Dr. Koya added that, this donation is non-political, non-religious and non-aligned but a gesture to show concern and solidarity, philanthropism, leadership and accountable stewardship and giving back to the people of Nandom timely.
The Nandom Municipal Coordinating Director, Esther Abaching who received the donations on behalf of the Municipal Chief Executive, expressed her gratitude and assured the donor of putting the items to good use.

“The fight against Covid-19 is a collective effort to ensure the disease does not spread in the Nandom Municipality.”
The Director of the Nandom Municipal Health Services, Genevieve Yiripare on her part thanked the donor for showing concern regarding the health of the people.
She said: “Since we started the fight, it has been a fight against Covid-19 and Meningitis. We have been working together and our Municipal Chief Executive has planned well for the municipality.
“This support we have received today will go a long way to complement what is already being done. We will put all these donations to good use and we also wish to appeal to many more sons and daughters of Nandom and other philanthropists to come to our aid.
