The Managing Director of State Housing Company, Mr. Kwabena Ampofo Appiah and Mr. Kenneth Adjei, Deputy Minister of Defence under the erstwhile John Mahama administration have jointly donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the Martyrs of Uganda Preparatory School in Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital.
The items donated include veronica buckets, disposable nose masks, liquid soaps, hand sanitizers, tissues and an undisclosed amount.
At a presentation ceremony, the two politicians from the NPP and NDC explained that the donation was to help the school (where they both had their basic education in the late eighties), to fight against against COVID-19.
They urged the teachers to ensure that the pupils observe all COVID-19 safety protocols to prevent them from contracting the deadly virus.
