A group known as the Volta Union UK/Europe donated personal protective items to the Ho Teaching Hospital to help in the fight against Covid-19 pandemic.

The gesture was made in a colourful ceremony organised at the hospital on Friday, September 11, 2020

The items included 2,500 pieces of face masks, 4,000 hand gloves and 500 pieces of 65ml hand sanitizers.

Chief of Srogboe Togbi Kpatamia IV, and the country representative of the union who presented the items said they were motivated by the desire to contribute to the fight against the coronavirus that took the world by storm.

He was hopeful that the gesture will help solve some teething challenges at the facility.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Hospital, Dr John Tampuri who received the items expressed his gratitude to the union.

He added that the support came at a time when they needed it most.

He said even though novel coronavirus figures have reduced significantly, there was still the need to increase protection for the general public by observing the safety protocols.

Dr Tampuri was optimistic that observance of the safety protocol would have a positive tremendous impact on the eradication of the disease in the country.

He was hopeful that others would follow suit to complement the government’s effort in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
