Bel-Aqua Mineral Water donated GHS500,000 to the COVID-19 Trust Fund. The gift was part of the company’s efforts to augment the government’s strategy to fight the pandemic Ghana. Bel-Aqua also provided 1,000 packs of its branded Bel-Aqua Mineral Water to frontline health workers to keep them hydrated while they delivered essential health services to Ghanaians.
Corporate directors Dhiraj Lakhiani and Manoj Lakhiani, Head of Marketing Mr. Raj Mirpuri and Head of Corporate Communications Mr. Emmanuel Quist expressed concern for the socially vulnerable whose livelihoods are currently being affected by the ramifications of COVID-19. The corporate leadership hopes that the donated funds will augment government’s social intervention plans and help alleviate the sufferings imposed by COVID-19 on Ghanaians living below the poverty line, whose livelihoods depend on their daily economic activities.
Bel-Aqua stated that, as an indigenous Ghanaian company that has been in operation for the past decade, it felt the need to contribute to the fight against a common enemy threatening to alter our lives. Head of Communications Mr. Emmanuel Quist observed that now was not the time to hold back money when people’s lives were threatened by Covid-19. Mr. Quist said Bel-Aqua was grateful to the people of Ghana for their continued support and could not abandom the people when they most needed the company’s help.
Chief of Staff at the seat of government Mrs. Frema Osei-Opare received the gift from Bel-Aqua and expressed the government’s gratitude for the laudable contribution to the COVID-19 Trust Fund. Mrs. Osei-Opare also recalled the economic and social contributions the Bel-Aqua has made continually to the development of Ghana.
Bel-Aqua has already donated critical hospital supplies and other essentials worth GHS100,000 to the Police, Military and the Tema General Hospitals, which serve as Ghana’s isolation and treatment centres for COVID-19 cases. This brings the company’s total contribution to the fight against COVID-19 to GHS600,000.
