The items donated included gloves, facemasks, sanitizers and gallons of liquid soap. This gesture is part of the organization’s commitment to support fight the pandemic, which has affected our country and the world at large.
Letshego Ghana Chief Executive, Arnold Parker stated, “As the COVID-19 numbers continue to increase across the globe, it is only safer that we intensify our fight against this pandemic until see the numbers down. It is in this regard that we are doing this donation to support the Michel Camp Military hospital. As a business that believes in improving life, we also believe that we can improve life when we first keep it safe. The items presented today are to help keep the workers of the facility very safe even as they do their sacrificial work.”
