B5 Plus Limited, the largest and biggest steel manufacturing company in Ghana located in Tema has given a huge relief to the COVID-19 fight by offering free oxygen refilling to all Government and Private Hospitals in the country, an initiative which commenced in March 2020.
According to the Company, the free oxygen supply will continue till the day COVID-19 is defeated in the country.
CEO of B5 Plus Ltd, Mr. Mike Mukesh Thakwani who announced this package said the company as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) geared towards supporting the needy decided to invest much of the CSR towards this free Oxygen refilling initiative considering how crucial the fight of the COVID-19 virus has become recently.
He observed that the new wave of the Virus which has seen a rise in the mortality rate requires more efforts towards saving lives and “as a good corporate citizen who cares about mother Ghana we deem it fit to support the country with oxygen which is much needed in the emergency Intensive care Unit (ICU).”
Mr. Mukesh Thakwani urged Government to step up its efforts towards combating the COVID-19-19 virus by enforcing all safety protocols outlined in a bid to ensure economic activities are done in a safe manner.
