Catholic Diocese Of Wiawso Presents Ppe To Three Institutions

The Catholic Diocese of Wiawso in support of the country’s fight against the deadly COVID-19 epidemic has donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to three institutions in the Western North Region.

The beneficiaries are; Bibiani Government hospital, Ghana Police Service Division at Bibiani and the Saint John of God Catholic hospital at Sefwi Asafo.

Each of them received forehead thermometers, surgical face masks, Veronica buckets with wooden stands and receptive buckets, litter bins, cartons of alcohol based hand sanitizers, tissue paper, liquid soaps and surgical gloves.

Presenting the items on behalf of the Diocese, the Vicar General of Wiawso Diocese and the Parish Priest of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Enchi, Reverend Monsignor Simon Assamoah, said they have decided to assist the frontline workers in this battle against the novel Coronavirus.

He said as the Diocese was concerned about the rapid spread of the disease globally, they thought it wise to supplement government’s effort in controlling the spread of the virus.

“I have worked in the Bibiani Parish for 12 years and helped many organizations including; the Bibiani government hospital, where I provided them with hospital beds and incubators so I still have Bibiani at heart” he said.

The Vicar General entreated the public to abide by the President’s directives on the COVID-19 including; the compulsory wearing of the face masks.

The Reverend Brother Johannes B. Torwoe, Director of Saint John of God Catholic hospital, thanked the Diocese for the kindness.

He pledged that the items would be used for their clients and staff to obtain the optimum benefit.
The Administrator of Bibiani government hospital, Mr Habib Ganiyu, pointed out that Bibiani and Sefwi-Wiawso recorded about 56 cases, being managed at isolation centres.

According to him, “We have periodically received PPE from the central government through the medical stores and the hospital had also procured few PPE but you will agree that the fight is not a joke, nobody can do it alone so what the Catholic Diocese of Wiawso has done is a good complement of the government’s endeavor.

“Be mindful of how you use the PPE to manage what the hospital has received to handle our cases. We may not get some to buy in the market and even if an order is placed, it would take a longtime to be delivered” he noted
He commended the Catholic Church for supporting them in these trying moments.
