Ghanaian rapper Criss Waddle has donated many gallons of hand sanitisers to some hospitals in the country.
The beneficiary hospitals include Tema Genera Hospital, Konongo Odumasi Government Hospital, and Tema Healthwise Medical Centre.
Criss Waddle made the donations to the aforementioned health facilities on Tuesday, March 24, 2020.
Ghana confirmed its first cases of the dreaded Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) barely two weeks ago.
Following the confirmation and further information for the use of alcohol-based hand sanitisers as a way of reducing infections, there have been reported shortages of sanitisers in the country.
The few supplies that came in too were overpriced leaving many hospitals and health workers who come in direct contact with patients unable to buy.
It is in response to this development that Criss Waddle who lambasted those involved in the price hikes decided to get some for the hospitals in need.
Sharing the news of his donation on social media, the AMG Bizness boss noted that the government was so much under pressure.
He thus urged Ghanaians to contribute in their own little ways to help alleviate the situation.
"Tema General Hospital, Konongo Odumasi government HospitaL and Tema Healthwise Medical Center your hand sanitisers are on their way. Government has so much pressure right now. Let’s all contribute any little way we can," he captioned a photo of the gallons of sanitisers.
Later, Waddle shared a video showing a letter of appreciation he got from the Tema General Hospital.
Meanwhile, Ghana's COVID-19 case count has risen from 53 on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, to 68 on Wednesday.
This was confirmed via the Twitter handle of the Disease Surveillance Department of the Ghana Health Service.
