The Management of the Ghana Shippers’ Authority (GSA) has donated 20 boxes and 100 gallons of liquid and gel sanitizers to the Ridge and Tema General Hospitals to fight against COVID-19 pandemic.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Shippers’ Authority, Ms. Benonita Bismarck, handing over the items, said the donation was part of the Organisation’s contribution to the fight against the spread of COVID-19.

She appealed to other public-spirited institutions to support health facilities with the requisite medical tools for effective healthcare delivery.

Ms Bismarck commended the staff of the two health facilities and other healthcare providers across the country for their sacrifices.

Receiving the items on behalf of the Ridge Hospital, Dr. Ralph Armah, a Clinical Director and Senior Specialist thanked the Shippers’ Authority for the kind gesture, saying the donation was timely as it was finding it difficult in getting sanitisers for staff, patients and visitors.

Dr Armah appealed to the public, companies and individuals to emulate the shining example of the Shippers’ Authority by supporting health facilities with sanitizers and other medical supplies to save lives.

He called on traders who were inflating the prices of medical supplies in the wake of COVID-19 to refrain from the practice as it was becoming an obstacle for quality healthcare delivery.

At the Tema General Hospital, Mrs. Bridget Amy Zaukuu, the Head of Administration, received the items on behalf of the hospital, and expressed gratitude to the Shippers’ Authority for the support.
