The Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference (GCBC) has made a cheque donation of GHC70,000.00 to the COVID-19 National Trust Fund.
Most Reverend Charles Gabriel Palmer-Buckle – Archbishop of the Cape Coast Metropolis – who is the Vice President of GCBC made the presentation on behalf of the Conference at its Secretariat in Accra.
He was supported by Rev. Fr. Lazarus Anondee, Secretary-General of the GCBC.
Archbishop Palmer-Buckle noted that the donation was the Catholic Church’s widow’s mite to support the government so that collectively Ghana could fight the novel Coronavirus disease.
He said GCBC’s nine-month National Response Plan for Covid-19 is aimed at providing Protective Personal Equipment for all Catholic frontline health workers as well as provide relief items to the elderly and the vulnerable.
He expressed his gratitude to all, especially the frontline workers for their sacrifices and prayed for God’s protection and intervention.
The GCBC also stated that it is equipping all of its 111 hospitals across the country and putting them on alert to attend to any case of COVID-19.
It says it has trained its nurses and doctors in the hospitals and provided them with Personal Protective Equipment to fight the pandemic.
