Zipline Ghana gave 25 life jackets to nurses and fishermen at Ekye, a community in the Kwahu Afram Plains South District of the Eastern Region. The life jackets will help save the lives of nurses who commute to work daily on the Volta Lake and other water bodies in the area.

Presenting the lifejackets to beneficiaries, Mrs. Naa Adorkor Yawson, Systems Integration Lead for Zipline, said the Zipline Ghana deemed it important to protect lives and reiterated the company’s commitment to communities within its business area.

Mr. Theophilus Avor, Assemblyman for Ekye-Amanfrom, thanked Zipline for the kind gesture and noted that travelling across the lake could be very risky during a storm. Mr. Avor also observed that it was the first time a private company had donated to fisher folk in the area.
