The items included veronica buckets, liquid soaps, boxes of tissues, hand sanitizers and dustbins running into thousands of Ghana Cedis.
They were handed over to the Regional Coordinating Council for onward distribution to the Regional Health Directorate at a brief ceremony in Cape Coast on Wednesday.
Obrempong Nyanful Krampah XI, President of the Regional House who presented the items said it required the collective efforts of all and sundry to combat the global pandemic which must not be left on the shoulders of governments alone.
He said the House’s contribution ‘in this difficult period of COVID-19’ was geared towards protecting the public against the spread of the virus in the region.
He said the House was equally concerned about the possible spread of the disease and had since issued a communique to all chiefs to take active role in educating their people on the need to stay safe.
He called on all to adhere to the President’s directives of social distancing, the ban on large gatherings as well as regular washing of hands under running.
Mr Kwamena Duncan, Regional Minister who received the items highly commended the chiefs for the gesture, saying it was the first since the advent of the pandemic.
He urged the chiefs to continue to play lead roles in educating the people about the disease in their respective communities.
