Coronavirus: Alban Bagbin donates PPEs to Nadowli/Kaleo District Health Directorate

The Member of Parliament of the Nadowli/Kaleo Constituency and second deputy speaker of Parliament, Alban S.K Bagbin, on Thursday, donated a number of Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs), valued at GHC70,000 to the Nadowli/Kaleo District Health Directorate to augment the district's preparedness and readiness in the fight against COVID-19 disease.

The PPEs were presented at a short ceremony on behalf of the MP by Biekpe T. Sylvester, the communication officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Nadowli-Kaleo Constituency.

The PPEs included 53 full sets of Overall Personal Protective Equipment (each comprising of Dupont Tyvet coverall, N-95 respirator, surgical nosemask, face shield, safety goggles, disposable apron, examination gloves, heavy duty gloves, hand sanitizer and shoe cover) and 50 sets of Sigma gum boots.

Other auxiliary support included 42 pieces of non-contact infrared thermometers, 5 cartons of 250mls hand sanitizers as well as 20 gallons of 1L GIHOC sanitizers.

The donation was received by the District Director of Health, Mrs Phebe in the presence of some staff of the Nadowli-Kaleo district health directorate, the District Coordinating Director, the District Director of Education, the District Police Command, the District BNI Officer, some Constituency Executives and members of the National Democratic Congress led by the Hon. Bartholomew, Vice Chairman.

The Party therefore wishes to thank the staff of the district health services for their dedication and commitment to ensuring Covid-19 free in the district and to assure them of the unflinching support by Rt.Hon Bagbin, Anthony Sumah and the Party in these abnormal times.

Recognizing the devastating effects posed by the disease to the lives of the people, this donation is expected to augment an earlier donation of Ghc20,000 by the Rt. Hon. Alban S.K Bagbin and other items such as Veronica buckets, sanitizers and washing soap that were donated by the NDC 2020 Parliamentary Candidate, Hon. Anthony Mwinkaara Sumah, in the fight against the deadly COVID-19 disease.
