The latest to have contributed is respected man of God, Bishop Gideon Titi-Ofei.

The leadership coach and motivational speaker on Tuesday, March 31, offered his 100-bed facility to the head of the Tema West Municipality Health Directorate to be used as an isolation centre.

The entrepreneur made the revelation in a post on Facebook.

His gesture will help decentralize case management and also reduce pressure on already existing and strained facilities in Tema and Accra as a whole and also smoothen work for the health workers.

Meanwhile, the Church of Pentecost has also donated 10 vans to the National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE) to aid its public education activities on coronavirus.
