Rev. Drs. Ebenezer and Davina Markwei’s led charismatic Church, Living Streams International has donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) worth GHC20,000.
The donation was made to the La Dade-Kotopon Municipal Assembly (LADMA) to aid the effort against Coronavirus by health workers and community partners embarking on contact tracing in the community.
N95 respirator masks, infra-red thermometers, disposable gowns, surgical masks, protective eye-wear and hand sanitizers were the several PPE donated by the church (headquartered in LA).
“as a health provider myself, I know the risks healthcare workers around the country are facing daily. We believe that the Assembly’s efforts can change the course of this pandemic by continuous detection, testing, isolation, treatment and sensitization of the public,” Rev. Dr Davina Markwei, the First Lady of LSI and a Physician said after presenting the items.
The La Dade-Kotopon Municipal Director of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Vera Opata, who received the items was grateful to the church for their gesture and urged other organisations to emulate.
She encouraged Ghanaians to adhere to all the precautionary measures recommended by the Health Authorities to curb the spread of the virus.
Rev. Dr Ebenezer Markwei, the General Overseer of Living Streams International earlier noted that the entire church has been moved by the plight of health workers who are sacrificing so much for the welfare of everyone else.
He said, “even as we commemorate the greatest sacrifice for humanity this Easter season, we salute our courageous frontline health workers who are the embodiment of living a sacrificial calling. I live with two, whose kindness and bravery every day leaves me in awe. We are here to help our heroes.”
