Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Ghana gave Teshie Community Clinic in Accra Coca-Cola-branded beverages and a package of disposable gloves, surgical masks, methylated spirit, medication, soap and paper towels. The PPE and essential supplies were provided to the clinic at a time when most health facilities had been stretched out of resources with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Human Resource Manager of Coca-Cola Ghana Francoise Cleland said Coca-Cola Ghana identified with the struggles of the health sector in these unfamiliar times of a pandemic where every area of Ghana’s economy has been hard hit.
“April 7, being World Health Day, we decided to observe it in a very special way by coming to your facility to express our appreciation to you as front-liners who have been at the forefront of the war against Covid-19, going all out to save lives. We also present these life-support logistics to aid in your work,” Ms. Cleland added.
Administrator of Teshie Community Clinic Ms. Audrey Booham received the donated package and expressed appreciation to Coca-Cola Ghana for the important support.
This gazetted intervention adds to the several health-related projects undertaken by Coca-Cola Ghana recently. Coca-Cola Ghana contributed GHS370,000 to the Ghana COVID-19 Private Sector Fund for the management of COVID-19 in Ghana.
