GLICO Group provided essential hospital equipment to the Ghana Air Force as part of GLICO’s contribution help stem the spread and support the management of COVID-19 infections. The equipment package included a diagnostic set, suturing set, resuscitation set, patient monitor, infrared thermometer, examination bed and five hospital beds. The Chief of Air staff, Air Vice Marshal Frank Hanson led a delegation to receive the gift package at the Ghana Air Force Headquarters at Burma Camp in Accra.

CEO of GLICO Group Mr. Edward Forkuo Kyei observed that, as a Ghanaian owned company, GLICO could not be adamant while Ghana went through a crisis. Mr. Kyei noted that the security and safety of Ghana and Ghanaians was very important for GLICO. He hoped the assistance provided will lend some weight to the fight against the deadly virus and that it would benefit members of the Ghana Armed Forces and Ghanaians at large.

Managing Director of GLICO LIFE Mrs, Mame Dufie Acheampong-Kyei Obeng said the assistance package reflected GLICO’s commitment as a dedicated partner of the Ghana Air Force in the latter’s fight against COVID-19. Mrs. Obeng affirmed GLICO’s commitment to continue its support for Air Force Bases, especially Air Force Base at Tamale during these difficult times.

Commander of the Air Force Base Tamale, Gp, Capt. David Anetey Akrong received the gift package and thanked GLICO for their donation. Gp. Capt Akrong said the equipment would help address some of the healthcare challenges facing the Tamale MRS over the years and will benefit members of the Air Force Base Tamale, 69 Airborne Force and the Community at large.
