IFMA donates PPEs to drivers at Tema Station


International Facility Management Association (IFMA) of the Greater Accra Chapter, on Saturday donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to some drivers, mates and passengers at the Tema Station and 37 Lorry Station.
The effort was to aid in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The items included nose masks, stickers, banners and posters to be placed in their vehicles.

Mr Sampson Opare Agyeman, President of IFMA of the Greater Accra Chapter, said they are doing this as part of efforts to aid the prevention of the spread of the COVID-19.

He said they have also realized that a lot of people come to transport hubs like Tema Station and also people travel from these places to other areas.

“If somebody is affected here, the person can easily move it to a different community and the spread will continue,” he said.

Mr Agyeman said their target were the drivers, mates and the passengers; and the effort was also to educate them on the correct way of wearing the nose masks and help to enforce the laws of wearing the nose masks.

“So we have nose masks, we want to give it to them and we have posters that we are going to give it to them to post in their cars so that passengers entering the cars can see it and appreciate it”.

Nii Walakata IV, Chairman of New Tema Station Welfare Office of the Union, thanked the IFMA for choosing the station and also for their support.

He said the donations would help both the drivers and the passengers in the effort to protect themselves and their families.

Mr Kwame Amoako, a driver from Tema-station to Kaneishie-Odorkor, said the posters in their vehicles would aid in educating the passengers who board their vehicles.

Mr George Gbedemah, a driver from Tema-station to Kasoa, expressed this gratitude to IFMA for recognize drivers and mates in their outreach efforts.
