Della Valentina Office (DVO) Ghana Limited has made a donation of GHC20,000 to the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR) as the company’s contribution to the fight against the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The donation was made by its Country Director, Mr Alexander Baffour Kwakye, who explained that it was part of the company’s maiden Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
At the ceremony, Mr Baffour Kwakye stated that the World Health Organisation (WHO) had recommended that increased testing, done quickly and effectively, was the key step in isolating and containing the spread of the infection.
He said it was his fervent expectation that the donation would ease the pressure on the government and free up much-needed resources for other essential aspects of the national strategy for COVID-19.
Mr Baffour Kwakye stressed the need for Ghanaians to heed the advice of the Ghana Health Service and the medical staff when he said “we put our shoulders to the wheel to safeguard our dear country from the effects of this pandemic”.
The Director, NMIMR, Professor Abraham Kwabena Anang, expressed his profound gratitude to DVO Ghana for the kind gesture.
He was happy to announce that the advances made by his outfit relating to the sequencing of the COVID-19 had been done in partnership with such private entities.
Prof. Anang also seized the opportunity to disclose that NMIMR testing for COVID-19 was achieving remarkable feet with up to 2,000 tests per day.
"We put our shoulders to the wheel to safeguard our dear country from the effects of this pandemic."
