As Ghana garners all the support it can to fight the novel corona virus, one of Ghana’s leading construction companies, Justmoh Construction Limited has led the way for corporate bodies in the Western Region to help in the fight against the novel corona virus by extending it its COVID-19 support to four health facilities in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis. The firm has presented separate cheques totaling GHC50, 000 cedi to them.

The amount is to help the health facilities purchase the needed logistics in their efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. The health facilities are Effia-Nkwanta Regional Hospital, the Takoradi, the Kwesimentsim and the Essikadu Government hospitals.

The Effia-Nkwanta Regional Hospital received GHC20,000.00 whilst Takoradi, Kwesimentsim and Essikadu received GHC10, 000 each.

Financial Director of Justmoh Construction Limited, Stephen Owusu Hammond explained they decided to extend the help to the hospitals because that is the wisest decision any corporate citizen can do in these difficult times.

“The world is in crisis. It calls for collective action. We can’t leave the fight for government, our doctors, nurses and other frontline health workers. We must support with our resources. Most health facilities have had their stock depleted. The facilities have all redirected their finances and other resources towards fighting the pandemic. And this is the perfect moment that we must come to their aid,” he explained.

He explained that they gave the highest amount to Effia-Nkwanta Hospital because it is the main referral hospital for the whole of the Western Region, and also because there is a campaign underway to help purchase ventilators for the facility.

“We heard their call for aid in procuring ventilators, and so we decided to make this donation of GH20,000 into that fund to support the process,” he stated.

Medical Director of the Effia-Nkwanta Regional Hospital, Dr. Joseph Tambil applauded Justmoh Construction Limited for the gesture. He said the hospital is in dire need of ventilators, and that this donation from the company could not have come at any appropriate time.

“These are very hard times and these are the times the hospitals need the most support. We pray that these measures work so that we don’t get cases around, but in the case of a failure of these interventions, we want to be sure that we are ready in case of any patient coming around. And that is why we are trying to put together some funds to purchase some ventilators. We’ve learnt from cases around the world that ventilators are the most essential to help save lives.
