Tullow Donation picTULLOW Ghana  Limited (TGL) has presented 10,000 pieces of personal protective equipment (PPEs) to the Ministry of Health as its contribution towards the country’s preparedness in the fight against Ebola.

Mr. Charles Darku, General Manager presenting the equipments on behalf of Tullow Ghana explained that as an organisation committed to the wellbeing of communities in which they operate, Tullow Ghana deems it appropriate to commit its resources in support of the fight against Ebola to help protect the lives of residents in Ghana.

He further mentioned that they are hopeful that the Ghana Health Service would distribute them to the regional hospitals and the Ebola treatment centres. In Addition, Tullow Ghana will distribute some quantities to the three teaching hospitals across the country, the 37Millitary and the Police hospitals.

Receiving the presentation on behalf of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Victor Bampoe, Deputy Minister of Health thanked Tullow Ghana for providing the items to the ministry.

He reiterated government’s call for serious and continuous collaboration  with all stakeholders to help prevent the disease.

Dr. Bampoe called for other organisations to support the state’s efforts as one Ebola case in Ghana could cause serious problems.
