The National Union of Holy Child Past Students Association (NUHOPSA) has donated GHC 70,000 to the National COVID-19 Trust Fund.

Mrs Ekua Asor Anyimadu-Antwi, the National President of NUHOPSA, said the donation was to support the provision of health-protective items to the front line workers.

She said it also their widow's mite to support the government's efforts in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mrs Anyimadu-Antwi said: "these individuals are risking their lives to ensure our survival" and eulogised their dedication and sacrifices at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19.

'We are grateful to all front line health workers, for the sacrifices they make. We pray that our donation will go a long way to provide them with their basic tools to enhance their work."

"We continue to pray for the protection and intervention of the Holy Child Jesus in the current situation", she opined.

The Former Chief Justice and Chairperson of the COVID-19 Trust Fund, Sophia Akufo, who received the donation on behalf of the government, assured the NUHOPSA that the donation would be used for the intended purpose.
