The Republic Bank Ghana donated PPEs to Cape Coast Teaching Hospital (CCTH) to support the hospital’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The gift package worth GHS10,200 included the following:
- 2000 nose masks
- 1000 gloves
- 3 BP Monitors
- 1 thermometer gun
- 10 gallons of 5 liter hand sanitizers and
- 50 paper towels rolls.
Central Zonal Manager of Republic Bank Mr. Akwasi Peprah Odoom said the fight against the pandemic should not be left to government or the WHO only but rather deserves a collective contribution from everyone. Mr. Odoom explained, that the Republic Bank, globally, has made set aside $2 million to fight the pandemic, out of which GHS1.1 million has already been channeled into support for health facilities in Ghana’s epicenters of Accra and Kumasi. Beyond these commitments, staff of the bank also found need to contribute from their own resources to support health facilities outside the epicenters of the pandemic.
Republic Bank Ghana commended frontline health workers for their selfless dedication to their work in the fight against the pandemic.
CEO of Cape Coast Teaching Hospital Dr. Eric Ngyedu commended the bank staff for their benevolence, describing it as timely. Dr. Ngyedu said although government in the wake of the Covid 19 has endeavored to resource health facilities, support from Republic Bank staff is important because it comes to augment government’s efforts.
