The Alumni of the Ghana Secondary Technical School (GSTS) taking cognizance of their responsibility to support their Alma Mater fight the novel coronavirus, have made a donation of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) worth GHC40,000.00 to the school.
The items included infrared thermometers, disposable gloves, surgical face masks, N95 respirators, reusable face masks, coveralls, goggles,face shields, bleach/antiseptics, pulse oximeters, foot covers, headcovers, hand sanitizers and two-way radios.
These items, according to the 1st Vice President of the GSTS Alumni Association (GAA), Gaint Tetteh Abbeyquaye ’89, will enhance the delivery of medical services at the school’s Sick Bay, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As soon as this pandemic started, we decided to do something as an Association. Our membership’s strong consensus was that we could not just sit down. This led to a COVID-19 fundraiser which allowed us to purchase these items for the school” he added.
President of GAA, Giant Nana Samuel Akuamoah Boateng said the association has had to intervene at a time when the school is made to reopen amid the pandemic, so as to protect their younger siblings from the novel coronavirus.
He took the opportunity to commend members of the GAA Year Groups and the GAA Chapter for their selfless contribution to this very intervention.
“without their commitment to the school and the love they have for our little brothers, we cannot do much” he noted.
On behalf of the association, Gaint Akuamoah Boateng pledged to make available additional resources to stock the sick bay so they could effectively manage any instance of the viral infection.
Present to donate on behalf of the Association were GAA Trustee, Gt. John Aidoo’72 and other GAA Executives including Gt. Julius Nkrumah’86, Gt. Peter Avevor’92, Gt. Ebo Simpson’97, Gt. Henry Attumbu’98, Gt. Francis Appah’04, and Gt. Ebenzer Koomson’07.
