The University Co-operative Credit Union has presented 20 boxes of face masks to the University Hospital.
The face masks are intended to protect the staff of the hospital from contracting COVID-19.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony, a member of the UCC Credit Union Board, Mr. Emmanuel P. Owusu, said the donation was in response to a request the Director of University Health Services (DUHS), Dr. Evans Ekanem, made during an earlier donation. He explained that the 20 boxes contained 1000 pieces of masks which he said would go a long way to protect the staff of the hospital.
Receiving the items, Dr. Ekanem expressed gratitude to the Credit Union for honouring their pledge. He said the Hospital was in dire need of the face masks and, therefore, the donation was timely. He called on other organisations and individuals to support the University in these critical times to deliver quality healthcare.
Present was Mrs. Charity Abraham who is also a member of the Credit Union Board.
