Ghana’s Covid-19 case count currently stands at 40,097 with 206 deaths and the Volta region laying sixth on the regional breakdown with 614 cases.

The Ho Teaching hospital like other hospitals in Ghana always have deficit in terms of Covid-19 Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs), sometimes it is either there are no funds to purchase these PPEs or even when there is money, it is mostly not readily available for procure.
To ease this burden on the Volta region’s premier hospital (Ho Teaching Hospital) the Adonko Company provided 20 boxes of Adonko Original Hand sanitizers, one thousand (1,000) pieces of nose masks, hundred and twenty (120) rolls of tissue towels and 5 cartons of Adonko Next level energy drink to the hospital.
Pastor Tonny Oduro who is the Director of Human Resource at the hospital explained that, the donation by the Adonko group is very helpful and timely considering the fact that the hospital spends huge sums of money to procure items such as hand sanitizers, nose masks tissue towels and other PPEs to combat the Corona Virus pandemic.
He said the endowment by Adonko Company will help them financially. “When this donation comes in it will help us stabilize our finances and it helps our staff too because every time they need to be protected too while caring for their patients.”
