Cape Coast, 15th May, 2020
Ever since president Nana Akuffo Addo announcement the establishment of the Covid-19 Trust Fund, a lot of organizations including some Ghanaians have generously donated both in-kind and in-cash towards the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. While others have directly donated to the Covid-19 Trust Fund, some Ghanaians have also decided to donate various ppe’s and other items to various hospitals and other public and private institutions across the country.
It upon this backdrop that, a Cape Coast based award winning gospel musician Isaac Crentsil has made some donation to the Cape Coast Metropolitan (CCMH) today Friday 15th May, 2020.
When presenting the items to the hospital, the “Pentecost” hit maker Isaac Crentsil said, the first case of Covid-19 patient in the Cape Coast Metropolis was someone from Nkanfua a suburb of the Cape Coast where he incidentally also lives. He continued that, when that news broke out, then “I took it upon myself to mobilise some items to assist in the fight against Coronavirus”. I was initially motivated to mobilise for lorry stations within the Cape Coast Traditional Area but was prevailed upon by one radio presenter to consider adding the Cape Coast Metropolitan Hospital to my list and this why we are here to donate my widows might to the hospital”.
The items donated to the CCMH included 5 Gallons of hand sanitizers, 10 gallons of liquid soap, 7 large size Veronica buckets with its accompanying 7 washing bowls, 2 packets of large size tissue rolls, 3 packets of medium size tissues rolls and 16 packets of toilets rolls.
The Medical Superintendent of CCMH Dr. Derek Akyeampong Bonsu took delivery of the items on behalf of the hospital management. He thanked the musician and the entire Seventh Day Adventist Church for their kind gesture. “The items being donated today would not only be used to serve the coronavirus patients but would be sent to the other departments within the hospital that may need some of the items. “We see the hospital as half glass full and not half empty and any little support is much appreciated because with such support the half full glass of water would be full with time” Dr. Bonsu disclosed. He further took the opportunity to ask for God’s blessings for all those who contributed in diverse ways to support the artist to able to do the donation.
Nkanfoa and Moree lorry stations which are suburbs of Cape Coast were the other beneficiaries of the items donated by Isaac Crentsil. They received 100 bottles of hand sanitizers and 100 pieces of locally manufactured nose masks.
Isaac Crentsil was the first musician from Central Region to record a song to help in educating Ghanaians about the coronavirus pandemic.
He was accompanied by
Pastor Garnet Owusu Ansah, Pastor Solomon Obeng Owusu, Pastor Eric Osborn Nortey, Rev. Samuel Apedo, Elder Gabriel Amissah, Sister Grace Baaah and Mrs. Jemima Oppong.
