The Lordina Foundation on Sunday presented a number of essential items including veronica buckets, boxes of liquid soap and hand sanitisers to the inmates at the Gambaga Witch Camp.

The items are to help the women, who are all advanced in age, to prevent the spread of the coronavirus within the camp.

Regular washing of hands with soap under running water is one of the best means by which people can protect themselves from contracting the virus which has, so far, killed five people in Ghana out of the one hundred fifty-two infected with two recoveries.

The Board Chairman of the Foundation, Reverend Stephen Wengam, commenting on the presentation, said: “unfortunately, older people and persons with existing medical conditions including diabetes, cardiovascular and chronic respiratory diseases are said to be more likely to have serious complications when infected. Our support to the women is to help them protect themselves and prevent any infections within the camp.”

The Gambaga Witch Camp has, over the years, received various forms of support from the Lordina Foundation and, especially from its President, Mrs Lordina Dramani Mahama, a former First Lady of Ghana.
