The Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Ho Sector, on Monday presented COVID-19 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to 20 deprived schools in Ho and Aflao at a brief ceremony at the Customs office-Lokoe, Ho.
Making the presentation, the Ho Sector Commander, Assistant Commissioner, Mr Samuel Foli, noted that they deemed it necessary as their social corporate responsibility to reach out to deprived schools with the PPE.
According to him, government alone cannot continue to provide the PPE in the face of the pandemic, hence the support.
The Sector Commander explained further that COVID-19 cases continue to rise, “which meant we are not yet out of the woods and we need not relax of the use of these PPE.
Therefore there was the need to contain the pandemic, so that people could stay healthy and eke a living to stay at least free from the ravages of the virus.”
He called on the school heads to continue to make sure teachers and school children strictly adhered to the safety protocols.
Madam Benedicta Tawiah, head teacher of Nyive MA Primary, who received the items on behalf of the beneficiary schools commended the GRA for the gesture and said they would be put them to good use.
She said she appreciated the gesture as a generous contribution to the deprived schools at the time that their stocks were getting finished.
