The West African nation has recorded 636 cases since the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus with eight persons confirmed dead.
The COVID-19 Trust Fund was created by the government of Ghana to mobilise resources to tackle the spread of the dreaded virus.
VRA’s donation was presented by Board Chairman, Mr Kweku Andoh Awotwi, Chief Executive Officer Ing. Emmanuel Antwi-Darkwa, and National Executive Member of the VRA Senior Staff Association, Mr Martin Adjoe at a brief ceremony at the Jubilee House, Seat of Government on Wednesday, April 15, 2020.
The Chairperson of the National COVID-19 Trust Fund, Justice Sophia Akufo, who received the donation on behalf of the Trustees, expressed the gratitude of the Trust Fund for the gesture.
She said the gesture was a clear demonstration of citizenship.
Justice Sophia Akufo pledged that every penny of the money would be put into the fight against the COVID-19.
“We want to assure you that every penny is going to go into the fight against the spread of the Coronavirus,” she assured her guests.
