The Executive Women Network (EWN), donated personal protective equipment (PPE), essential medical and relief supplies to hospitals and vulnerable communities in Greater Accra and the Upper East Regions. The package was part of EWN’s contribution to the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Office Manager of Executive Women Network Mrs. Wendy Nunoo said the assistance package was part of EWN’s core vision to alleviate the plight of the socially vulnerable, especially vulnerable women and children, especially at a very difficult time such as we have.

In Greater Accra, EWN gave Kwabenya District Hospital a package of detergents, hand sanitizers and toiletries to for the protection of front line health workers. EWN also committed to a three-week provision of free meals for front line health workers to celebrate their fantastic work at a difficult time. The Network also reached out to vulnerable families in Chorkor with relief food supplies, Veronica buckets and detergents and held a public health education session for community members on measures to protect families from the risk of infection. In Upper East Region, the Executive Women Network donated PPE and Veronica buckets to Talensi District Hospital, Bongo District Hospital, Bolgatanga Regional Hospital, Zuarungu Health Centre and Coronation Health Centre.

A statement from EWN noted that the Network had observed the damaging effect the pandemic continued to have on communities, businesses and the global economy. EWN said in such times, the impact on vulnerable communities, women and children could not be overemphasized. The Network called for unity and collective action to support vulnerable communities to ensure that the fight against the pandemic is won.

EWN commended health workers and all front line workers for their distinguished role leading the fight against the pandemic. The Network expressed its members’ gratitude to Fredor GH and Zesuza Farms & Catering Services for supporting its social outreach initiative.
