The Church of Pentecost (CoP), in partnership with Tobinco Pharmaceuticals, has donated personal protective logistics worth GHS45,000.00 to the Ministry of Health (MoH) in support of efforts by the Government in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic in Ghana.
The items, which include coveralls, nose masks, N95 Respirators, face shields, goggles, aprons, examination gloves, heavy-duty gloves, gumboots and hand sanitizers, among others, were presented to the Deputy Health Minister, Hon. Alexander Kodwo Kom Abban, by the Chairman of the church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, on Tuesday, March 24, 2020.
The Pentecost Church has set aside a fund of GHS100,000.00, out of which, the personal protective equipment (PPE) has been procured to support health officials who are front liners in the battle against the deadly virus.
The church also released 10 cinema vans to the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) to be used to undertake public education exercises on COVID-19 across the country for the next four weeks.
According to the General Secretary, Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, “During the period, the church has offered to foot the bill for vehicle maintenance, fuel, and allowances for the drivers who will be using the vans for the public education exercise.”
“The vans have Public Address systems fully fitted in them to serve the purpose of educating the general public about the deadly virus as well as the precautionary measures,” he added.
Receiving the items on behalf of the ministry, Hon. Alexander Kodwo Kom Abban was grateful to the church for the thoughtful gesture. He also urged all religious groups, particularly churches, to heed to the President’s call for the suspension of all gatherings in the country and to take part in the National Day of Fasting and Prayer on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, as declared by the President.
