Bayport Savings and Loans gave Ga East Municipal Hospital in Accra and Kumasi South Hospital a package of test kits, personal protective equipment (PPE), toiletries, bottled water worth GHS100,000. The gift package would improve availability and accessibility of PPE to healthcare professionals at the frontlines of the COVID-19 fight.  CEO of Bayport Savings and Loans Mr. Nii Amankra Tetteh said the gift was made in response to government’s rallying call for support. Mr. Tetteh said Bayport was happy to be able to contribute to the collective effort and hoped that the assistance package would complement government efforts in stemming the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ghana.

The statement from Bayport noted that Bayport kick started the year 2020 on an optimistic note prior to the onset of the pandemic. However, the company is taking the right steps to counter the pandemic and is making tremendous progress on the company’s digital journey. The statement indicated that while the pandemic had been disruptive, Bayport welcomed the opportunity to evolve and to grow resilient, identify avenues to become meaningful change agents and give back to society. Bayport expressed its commitment to participate meaningfully in the agenda to develop a purposeful, resilient and healthy society.

Medical Superintendent of Ga East Municipal Hospital Dr. Ebenezer Oduro Mensah received gift package and commended Bayport for the generous support. Dr. Mensah said the donated PPE and supplies were in critical demand at the hospital, noting that health professionals go through N95 masks quickly because most patients require frequent monitoring and care. Dr. Mensah described it as encouraging to see the private sector step in to support efforts to battle the pandemic. He looked forward to a continuing stronger with Bayport Savings and Loans, even in the post-COVID-19 world.
