Rotary Club of Accra North reached out to the Kotobabi Cluster of Schools in Accra with an assistance package to help the school reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection and case counts. The assistance package included:

  • 800 Rotary branded reusable face masks
  • 50 packs of paper towels and
  • 50 gallons of liquid soap

President of Rotary Club of Accra North Mr. Michael Dzreh said the community outreach is consistent with President Akufo-Addo’s call for everyone to heed COVID-19 preventative directives. Mr. Dzreh explained that when club members learnt that second-year junior high students would return to school in October 2020, members had concerns because the pandemic was far from being over.

Mr. Dzreh observed that members were concerned about the risk of infection and transmission if schools did not get the needed PPE and supplies. He said members decided to reach out to underresourced schools. He further expressed the club’s commitment to extend the support to other schools to support government’s effort to kick out COVID-19.

Headteacher for Kotobabi Basic School Mrs. Anastasia Abban lauded the support by Rotary Club of Accra-North to help fight the spread of the virus in schools. Mrs. Abban described the support as “very timely” and noted that the school children needed lots of soap to wash their hands.
