The Devtraco Foundation, the corporate social responsibility (CSR) structure of the Devtraco Group, together with their partners, Innova DDB have presented FDA approved nose masks to underprivileged schools within the Ayawaso Municipal Assembly.

The donation is timely intervention as most schools have opened for final year students, with the rest set to join them in January 2021.

Devtraco Foundation donates face masks to schools in Ayawaso Municipality

Speaking at the donation, Eugene Tettey-Fio who presented the nose masks to the schools on behalf of the Devtraco Foundation said the donation forms a part of Foundation’s commitment to ensure the wellbeing of their surrounding communities.

“As a not-for-profit organisation, our mission is to move beyond occasional Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities to a complete dedication to promoting the social wellbeing of our surrounding communities through sustained social initiatives.

From inception to date, the Devtraco Foundation together with partners, Innova DDB have been very instrumental in teaming up with other organisations to provide resources to make the lives of others in our communities much better”, he said.

Mr. Tettey-Fio further noted that the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly on school children, makes it necessary for deliberate actions to be taken to mitigate the impact on teaching and learning.

According to him, “Indeed, with the global pandemic of COVID-19 negatively affecting our economy and the world at large, there has been the need to step up and provide basic services to make the lives of our future leaders a little bit more comfortable.

It is in this regard that the Devtraco Foundation and our partners – Innova DDB came up with this initiative to produce masks as per the FDA guidelines to be given out for free to these young ones so their learning is not impacted in any negative way”.

“Our strong belief in the potential of the students here and in what they can achieve, is motivation enough for us to provide them with essential tools – FDA approved nose masks so they can continue with their schooling and studies with a much reduced risk of exposure”, he added.

Mr. Tettey-Fio called on others to emulate the Devtraco Foundation’s initiative and give generously to others no matter how little.

He further encouraged all Ghanaians to observe all COVID-19 safety protocols by washing hands frequently, masking up always, and ensuring the appropriate social distancing whenever.

The donation is the fifth in the Devtraco’s COVID-19 fight dubbed #MaskUp Campaign.
