The Ghana Upstream Petroleum Chamber has donated a consignment of personal protective equipment (PPE) to the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital in Sekondi and the 37 Military Hospital in Accra.

In Accra, the Commander at 37 Military Hospital, Brig. Gen Nii Adjah Obodai, said, “We need the supply of PPE, so that the people who have designated themselves as frontline workers, are protected. It is very much appreciated and I’m encouraging all others to help so that together we can fight the virus”.

Presenting the items, the Chief Executive Officer of the Chamber, Mr David Ampofo said, “The pandemic has created unprecedented disruption the world over and the priority for the industry now is the health and safety of all. We support the government’s efforts aimed at preventing the virus from spreading. Our lives are in the hands of our heroic healthcare workers whom we must do all in our power to protect as they go about their daily duties”.
