SIC Insurance Company Limited has handed over Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) valued at GH¢50,000 to the COVID-19 Trust Fund to support government’s fight against the pandemic.
The PPEs included disposable nose masks, protective coveralls, goggles, gum-boots, hand sanitiser gel, rubbing alcohol, gloves and disposable surgical caps. The company said the donation is to aid efforts of the frontline service providers who are doing a heroic job at a great risk to stem the disease from spreading.
The Deputy Head of Corporate Affairs-SIC Insurance, Mrs. Shirley Kokui Agyeman who led the delegation to hand over the items, further stated that the gesture formed part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility toward the Health Sector, especially amid the coronavirus pandemic.
SIC Insurance, she said, has been motivated by the leadership of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his team in combatting the pandemic, and hoped the items will augment government’s efforts.
Mrs. Agyeman, on behalf of the Board and Management of SIC Insurance, urged all citizens to follow and observe the protocols outlined by Health Authorities and wash our hands regularly with soap under running water, using alcohol-based hand sanitisers, wearing face masks, and if possible stay home to stay safe.
Receiving the items, Chairperson of the Fund, Madam Sophia Akuffo, commended SIC Insurance for its kind gesture and assured the PPEs will be distributed immediately, so that the frontline personnel and the vulnerable people can be given adequate protection.
