A senior lecturer with the Psychology Department at the University of Ghana, Dr. Inusah Abdul-Nasiru, has donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) worth about GHS 220,000 to the Krachi Nchumuru District in the Oti Region to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the area.
The items were distributed to health services delivery workers, the police, fire service and other security agencies in the district.
Some of the hand sanitizers and nose masks were handed over to the Christian council, Muslim council and some other community members.
The aspiring MP also encouraged residents to remain calm and cooperate with the President’s directives and other health precautionary measures in a bid to reduce their risk of contracting the virus.
“As a psychologist, I entreat all of us to remain calm, minimize fear, adjust our behaviour and avoid spreading false information about this disease. Let us all follow the directives of the President, his team of experts and local authorities as we support them to see us through these abnormal times,” he noted.
The extent of the Coronavirus outbreak in Ghana has encouraged many people to donate and give in various kinds.
Dr. Abdul-Nasiru now joins other individuals, groups and associations who have made similar cash and kind donations to various health facilities, communities, and institutions in the country amidst the COVID-19 scare.
