The beneficiary institutions include the Tema Regional Police Command and the Tema Remar Children’s Home.
Items such as drinks, water, hand sanitizers, disinfectants, hand gloves, bags of rice, gallons of oil and biscuits were presented to support the policemen and women and orphans in the Tema enclave to aid their fight in eradicating the global COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
Human Resource Manager of Zonda Tec Ghana, Nana Afua Frimpong presented the items on behalf of Zonda Tec Ghana on Thursday, 16 April 2020.
Speaking at the presentation, she said, “The outbreak of the novel Coronavirus has brought to bear the need for all of us; government, corporate entities, private sector and individuals to work together for the common and greater good of our country. Unity is vital to overcoming challenges in this period. Our donation to the Tema Regional Police Command is therefore reflective of the company’s mission to invest in our environment.”
DCOP Akrofi-Oyirifi Edward Johnson of the Tema Regional Police who received the items on behalf of the Police Command was grateful to the company for the gesture.
“I want to thank management and staff of Zonda Tec for this donation that they have made to the Tema Regional Police Command. This will go a long way to support the COVID-19 partial lock-down exercise, where we have deployed personnel to be on the ground to adhere and to ensure that inhabitants within the region comply with the directives that have been issued by government,” he said.
At the Tema Remar Children’s Home, Director of the home, Philip Dartey who received the items commended Zonda Tec Ghana for the gesture and called on other organisations to emulate them.
The outbreak of the novel Coronavirus in the country necessitated a partial lockdown in Accra, Tema, Kasoa and Kumasi. This has caused a lot of businesses to fall sharply thereby heightening financial conditions.
This has led to many benevolent institutions donating items to cushion the burden of Ghanains.
Currently, the total number of Coronavirus cases in Ghana has increased to 641 with 83 recoveries.
