CH Foundation donated $100,000 to the Ghana COVID-19 Private Sector Fund to support the completion of the Ghana’s first infectious diseases isolation and treatment facility in Accra. Group Chief Operations Officer of CH Foundation Mrs. Cynthia Darko Acquaye explained that Ghana COVID-19 Private Sector Fund’s initiative to build a new infectious diseases hospital had become even the more relevant as Ghana navigates a critical point in its history with rising COVID-19 cases and deaths.

Mrs. Acquaye said the CH Group was proud to have been associated with the infectious disease centre project right from its beginning and and was contributing to provide the final push for the successful completion of the project. The statement noted that Ghana would not be a good place to live in unless we collectively made it a good place for all. Notably, CH Group said Ghana’s economy could only fully flourish when, among other things, the health concerns of citizens have been addressed and effective measures put in place to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
Chairman of the Technical Committee of the Ghana COVID-19 Private Sector Fund Dr. Justice Yankson, who is also General Secretary of the Ghana Medical Association, received the donation and expressed gratitude to CH Group for the generous support. The 100-bed infectious disease isolation and treatment facility located at Ga East Regional Hospital, is expected to be ready for use by the end of June 2020.
Witnesses of the presentation event included: Chief Operating Officer of the CH Group Mrs. Cynthia Darko Acquaye (delegation lead), Chairman of CH Group Mr. Kwaku Bediako, Executive Director of CH Group Dr. Dan Amoah, Managing Director of Chase Petroleum Ghana Mr. Kingsley Sarpong, Managing Director of Gold Key Properties Ms. Fuseina Abu, Managing Director of Tema Tank Farm Mr. Bartholomew Darko and HR Director of CH Group Mr. Yaw Okyere.
