Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The management of Kasapreko Company Limited (KCL) has commended Minister of State and MP for Abetifi Bryan Acheampong for supporting local businesses amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
This follows Bryan Acheampong's acquisition of 107,000 pieces of hand sanitisers from the company for distribution in his constituency.
The large quantity of sanitisers, YEN.com.gh understands, were part of items the minister donated to his constituents. The total cost of the donation was valued at GHC821,000
Speaking to the press, Mr Gerald Bonsu, Commercial Director of Kasapreko Company Limited, commended Bryan Acheampong giving such a massive support to indigenous businesses in these troubling times.
"The honourable minister’s patronage of our products especially in such a large quantity demonstrates his confidence and commitment to the success of made in Ghana businesses,” he said.
Mr Bonsu further reiterated Kasapreko’s readiness to support the MP, as well as other individuals and organisations with the production of their quality WHO and ISO certified products in the drive to curb the pandemic within the shortest possible time.
Following the first incidence of COVID-19 in Ghana, President Nana Akufo-Addo called on local companies to join in the nation’s fight with the production of alcohol-based hand sanitisers among other products.
But even before that, Kasapreko had taken steps in that direction the first indigenous manufacturing company to produce hand sanitisers and sell at cheaper rates after excessive demand skyrocketed the prices in the market.
Over the past few days, the company has donated KCL hand sanitizers to the Ministry of Information, 37 Military Hospital, Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra, and the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi.
While government, individuals, and companies like Kasapreko continue to do their best, COVID-19 cases have not stopped increasing.
The general public is, therefore, advised to adhere to safety protocols which include washing hands thoroughly with soap and water under running water for twenty seconds, the use of hand sanitizers, abstinence from face touching, and the observance of social distancing among others.
