The council, members, management and staff of the Institute of Chartered Accountants Ghana (ICAG) donated GH₵50,000 to the COVID-19 National Trust Fund in support of government efforts to ameliorate the negative effect of the Coronavirus pandemic on Ghanaians. Human Resource and Communications Manager of ICA Ghana Ms. Abigail Armah said the donated funds would help purchase personal protective equipment (PPEs), hand sanitizers and other critical resources needed to help fight the spread of COVID-19 in Ghana.

The statement from ICA Ghana noted that the association, its management and staff responded to President Akufo-Addo’s national call for action by all to help fight the pandemic in Ghana. The support from the fund was one way ICA Ghana is partnering with government to fight the deadly virus and the Institute hopes the support provided will help achieve that goal.

Previously, the Kumasi and Tamale District societies of ICA Ghana (i.e. local chapters) donated Veronica buckets, hand sanitizers and other essential supplies to support government efforts at preventing the spread of the virus in their respective regions.

Marketing and Legal Manager of ICA Ghana Ms. Joyce Adu presented the cheque to Mr. Samuel Atta Akyea,  Minister for Works and Housing, at the Ministry of Information. Mr. Atta Akyea expressed government’s appreciation to ICAG’s key stakeholders for their kind gesture.   Mr. Isaac Adjin Bonney, a member of the institute also witnessed the donation event.

ICAG sent out communication to its members, students and staff to strictly observe all the safety protocols put out by the Ghana Health Service and the World Health Organization.
