Abuakwa Polyclinic in the Atwima Nwiabigya South Municipality of Ashanti region has received Personal Protective Equipment, PPE, worth thousands of cedis from the Ghana Diaspora Women, a non-profit organization that seeks to empower women and increase female participation in the policy making processe. The donation is to support the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The items include Veronica buckets, adult and toddler weighing scales, nose masks, sanitizers, boxes of gloves, gallons of liquid soap, dust bins, delivery gowns and tissue papers. The group has more than 50 members in both Ghana and the Diaspora and have been assisting the underprivileged communities across the country to solve teething problems.

Presenting the items, the President of the Ghana Chapter Esther Ampadu-Asiamah explained that the donation is the group’s contribution to bring relief to the vulnerable in the society at the time the nation is fighting the deadly coronavirus.

She said the plight of the less endowed communities in Ghana can only be addressed when non-profit organizations such as Ghana Diaspora Women commit themselves to complementing government’s effort to meet their needs.

Madam Ampadu-Asiamah said the provision of educational infrastructure, health, sanitation and hygiene services are the priorities of the Ghana Diaspora Women because they consider them as fundamental to improved health outcomes, quality education, poverty reduction and socio-economic development.

The Acting Medical Superintendent of Abuakwa Polyclinic, Dr. Nana Nketia Ababio said the donation has come at the right time, especially as the facility has been grappling with inadequate PPE’S and infrastructure deficits and has therefore urged government and Corporate Ghana to come to their aid.
