Keda Ghana Ceramics Company Limited, producers of Twyford Ceramic Tiles in the Shama District has donated some sanitary items worth hundreds of cedis to some selected organisations to fight spread of the COVID-19.

The items include some Veronica buckets, washing basins, alcohol-based hand sanitizers, tissue papers, cakes of medicated soaps and detergents.

The beneficiary organizations are the Shama District Hospital, Shama District Assembly, Ghana Navy, Ghana Airforce, 2BN Military Base, Regional Police Headquarters, Takoradi Youth For Development (TAY4DEV) and some radio stations.

Mr David Yevugah, Human Resource Manager of the company said this was part of the company’s widow’s mite to help curb the spread of the virus in the region.

He noted that Veronica buckets were mostly placed at vantage points and the people were conscious about the disease, but the detergents and soaps to wash their hands and tissues to wipe their hands after washing was a challenge, hence the need to close that gap.

According to him, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a toll on their production, sale, and delivery due to the lockdown of Accra and Kumasi which are the largest distribution areas for the company, there was the need to support all the stakeholders in the fight against the spread of the coronavirus.

He stressed that though the virus might not be in the region, there was the need to strictly follow the protocols prescribed by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Ghana Health Service (GHS) and the government.

Mr Yevugah, therefore, appealed to the populace to abide by the protocols by staying at home, practice social distancing of at least two metres, washing hands with soap under running water and the use of hand sanitizers.

The beneficiaries lauded the company for the efforts they were making to bring the COVID -19 pandemic under control in the region and the nation at large.

They also appealed to other religious and corporate bodies as well as traditional authorities to support the government to protect the citizenry as this was a shared responsibility.
