Ghana continues to make strides in its efforts to bring the situation of COVID-19 under control. The global health crisis has undeniably affected the country, with restrictions on key activities put in place to contain spread of the virus.
There is now a stronger need for corporates to respond to the crisis and work with government to help the people of Ghana. This was a strong factor in Samsung’s decision to support the country. Samsung has donated 500 units of Galaxy A2 Cores to the efforts. The devices will be used by frontline health workers to improve communication, as well as to monitor the movement of testing and care resources.
This is an essential part of Samsung’s strategy to support Ghana in its mission to curb the infection rate and flatten the COVID-19 growth curve.
“As COVID-19 continues to make its way across the country, our thoughts are with the people of Ghana. We are dedicating our resources to help and will continue working with government. We also believe that all companies should unite to work together with the country’s leaders and corporates now more than ever; our partner, MTN Ghana, will provide free SIM cards with 500mb data every month over 6-months for the devices we are donating,” said Eugene Nahm, MD Samsung Electronics West Africa, Ghana Branch.
Samsung believes in strong collaborations between government and the private sector, and is committed to playing a sustained role in the fight against COVID-19.
Receiving the devices on behalf of the government of Ghana, Minister of Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah commended Samsung and MTN for the support. The minister gave assurance that the devices will be used for their intended purpose.
