Living Streams International (LSI) gave Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) worth GHC20,000 to La Dade-Kotopon Municipal Assembly (LADMA) to support frontline health workers and community partners in contact tracing work of the fight against COVID-19 in Ghana. The donated package included N95 respirator masks, infra-red thermometers, disposable gowns, surgical masks, protective eye-wear and hand sanitizers.
General Overseer of Living Streams International Rev. Dr. Ebenezer Markwei explained that the entire church membership was moved by the plight of health workers who are sacrificing so much for the welfare of everyone else. He said as the world commemorates the greatest sacrifice for humanity in the Easter season, LSI was also saluting the frontline healthcare workers who embody what it meant to live a sacrificial calling.
Physician and senior clergy at LSI Rev. Dr. Davina Markwei, remarked that, being a healthcare professional, she knew at a personal level the risks healthcare workers face on a daily basis as they work at the frontlines of the COVID-19 fight. Rev. Dr. Markwei said Living Streams International believed that the Assembly’s efforts could change the course of the pandemic through continuous detection, testing, isolation, treatment and public awareness education.
Municipal Director of the Ghana Health Service for La Dade-Kotopon Dr. Vera Opata received the gift package and thanked Living Streams International for the kind gesture.
