It is also to help the vulnerable worse affected by the virus.

Justice Sophia Akufo asked the beneficiary health facilities to use the medical supplies for their intended purpose. She said the Trust will monitor the use and impact of the items. Justice Sophia Akufo appealed to benevolent organizations to continue to support the Trust.
