Puma Energy as part of measures to help fight the Covid 19 virus has supported the National Ambulance Service with free fuel worth GH¢223,000.
This was to help the ambulances operate effectively and also help ease the financial burden on the state in fueling ambulances within this period.
Speaking at a ceremony to present the cheque to the Ministry of Health, the Managing Director of Puma Energy, Mr Henry Osei, said the fight against Covid-19 was a shared responsibility for all.
” This is a call-to-action and it is important we all contribute to this unprecedented fight that threatens the very fabric of Ghanaian society.
The country’s fight against the dreaded pandemic, like other countries, has been challenging and demanding, bringing enormous pressure on government’s finances.
This burden has, however, been lessened by the support and help from individuals and more importantly, corporate Ghana, through donations and outreach programmes like what Puma Energy is doing.
The entry of the novel corona virus into Ghana has tested the resolve of the nation at confronting general problems and health challenges, stretching its economy and health system to the brink.
Not only has government had to dig deep into its coffers to come up with various social interventions to cushion the populace against the effects of the pandemic, but it has also had to fall on corporate firms to keep the fight against the virus going.
