Real estate developers, Waylead, have presented 20,000 medical grade nose masks to the Ghana police service and the Ghana medical association.
The items are the company’s contribution to the fight against the Coronavirus (covid-19) pandemic.
Chief Operating Officer of Waylead, Keegan Wang, who presented the items at the police headquarters, said the company found it obligatory to help frontliners in the fight against the virus.
“We know the police risk their lives and work hard to enforce social order on the streets in this covid period and doctors are doing the same to save our lives.
“That is why we are presenting these equipment to you, the police and our doctors,” he said.
Mr Wang said as a global pandemic, the virus required the contribution of everyone to fight.
He said Waylead, in addition to making the presentation, was also offering 10% discounts on their houses to frontline staff in the fight against the virus.
The company, he said is also offering furniture or home appliances to those frontline workers who purchase their flats or houses in 2020.
In this covid period, Mr Wang said socially responsible companies must make sacrifices to help people live through the difficulties.
He said Waylead, in spite of the slump in sales, had decided to maintain its staff as a way of alleviating any hardship they would face if they were sent home.
“If we work together, we can defeat civd-19,” he said.
COP Nana Asoma Hinneh, Director General, Police HR, received the donation and thanked the company for its generosity.
