GOIL Company Limited continues to assist health institutions and frontline staff in the fight against the novel pandemic, COVID-19.
The latest is the Police Hospital in Accra, where the company donated GH¢50,000 worth of medical items and personal protective equipment, PPE, to fight the coronavirus disease.
The items included Medical Scrubs, Face masks, Bed-sheets, Veronica buckets, Liquid soap, Tissue, Hand sanitisers and Gloves.
Making the presentation, the Group CEO/MD Kwame Osei Prempeh noted that GOIL has already donated similar items to other institutions – including the 37 Military Hospital, Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, GPRTU, Ashaiman Polyclinic and the National COVID-19 Trust Fund.
He said GOIL will continue to play its role as an important partner in the fight against spread of the virus as part of its corporate social responsibility, adding that the company will be of benefit to Ghanaians as the biggest indigenous OMC in the country.
“GOIL will continue to partner and collaborate with the Ghana Police service in the uninterrupted supply of fuel to Police Service and other security services,” Mr. Kwame Osei Prempeh added.
The Medical Director of the Police Hospital and Deputy Commissioner of Police, Dr. Marian Korboe, received the items and expressed gratitude to GOIL for the kind gesture – noting that the donation has come at the right time to help address the COVID-19 disease; specifically, to help frontline staff deliver effective services to the affected people.
Dr. Korboe recalled GOIL’s assistance last year toward rehabilitation of the hospital’s Executive ward, and thanked the company for its continued assistance.
