Management of the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital (CCTH) has expressed its gratitude to the Board of Directors, Management and Staff of the National Investment Bank (NIB) for an amount of Ten Thousand Ghana Cedis (10,000.00) donated as COVID-19 Relief. The gesture which forms part of the bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as well as a business enhancement drive, is to help the hospital address some of its logistical and personnel challenges in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
Presenting the cheque on behalf of Management, Western-Central Zonal Manager, Mr. John Kwame Fosu said CCTH is one of NIB’s biggest customers and such a generous donation that helps with the provision of Personal Protective Equipment for staff in their fight against COVID -19 is crucial. “CCTH does a lot of business with us (NIB) and supporting it address some of its needs, particularly in these uncertain COVID-19 period is not only essential but would also help bolster our business relationship with the health facility.”
On his part, the Cape Coast Branch Manager, Mr. Felix Ekow Eshun was hopeful the donation would not only help the hospital effectively manage the COVID-19 pandemi but also, positively impact the business relationship. This view, according to him is because “the Management of CCTH made it clear to me on my first visit to the hospital that any form of help from us (NIB) to help fight COVID-19 would be most appreciated. The relationship between the two institutions (NIB and CCTH) has been great over the past few years and I believe this gesture would help strengthen the partnership further.
Receiving the cheque on behalf of the hospital, the Managing Director Dr. Eric Kofi Ngyedu expressed profound gratitude to NIB for the donation saying “COVID-19 has imposed enormous exigencies on the hospital and in a such a situation, we need partners to help augment the resources government has been providing to combat the pandemic.”
He assured that the donation “will be put to good use to ensure that frontline staff and the good people of the Central Region are protected from COVID-19. This gesture from you will make a massive impact on our fight against the pandemic but I would like to ask all Ghanaians to keep adhering to all the protocols regarding COVID-19 as we are not out of the woods yet.”
