Speaking at a presentation event in Accra, Mr. Kwasi Zigah-Head of Marketing & Strategy PETROSOL, indicated that the purpose of this donation was to lend the company’s support to efforts being made by state agencies in the fight against COVID-19 in the country, by focussing on some selected hospitals in dire need of these PPEs to protect the lives of their frontline medical workers.
