GLICO Group donated Veronica buckets, hand sanitizers, vitamin C tablets and thermometer guns to the Ghana Prisons Service to assist in preventing the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. CEO of GLICO Group Mr. Forkuo Kyei was concerned that during such trying times, the socially vulnerable bear the brunt of the burden and suffer the most because they cannot afford the essentials to protect themselves. Mr. Kyei explained that this was the reason GLICO Group provided these critical supplies to the Ghana Prisons Service to help protect both inmates and prison wardens from the risk of infection.

Mr. Kyei underlined the need to observe proper hygiene including hand washing with soap, coughing and sneezing into sleeves, using hand sanitizers and tissues and keeping the environment clean.

Director General of Prisons Mr. Patrick Darko-Missah expressed gratitude to the leadership of GLICO for the support.  Mr. Darko-Missah noted that GLICO had always responded when approached for assistance. However, he noted that, in this instance, GLICO was not approached, but the group took the initiative to reach out to Ghana Prisons Service.

Key witnesses at the presentation event included Mrs. Maame Dufie Achampong-Kyei Obeng (Managing Director of GLICO Life), Mr. Andrew Achampong-Kyei (Managing Director for GLICO General), Nana Efua Rockson (Group Head, Corporate Affairs & Marketing) and Ms. Ladonna Buahin (Chief Operations Officer for Glico Life).
