The coronavirus otherwise known as the COVID-19 which is known to be claiming the lives of several people has in one way or the other pushed people to do the little they can to help others.
Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
From helping frontline health workers to reaching out to the poor and needy in society and helping one's neighbor, some individuals stood out among the rest with their exceptional acts of charity and kindness.
Using social media which is reportedly one of the most powerful forms of media which can be used to reach out to people in these COVID-19 times, these individuals have really touched lives.
YEN.com.gh has compiled a list of individuals who have touched the lives of others in one way or the other in these COVID-19 times.
1. Mabel Aku Banasseh
The former journalist who is into her own business now created a page called Mabel and friends and which was used to raise funds to support the less privileged and the poor in the society.
Mabel, through her Facebook page, has touched the lives of many people who were recommended to her through several people.
Donations were mostly in cash and some were also in the form of food items as well. For accountability sake, this human-angel shared on her page what exactly the funds were used for.
2. Derek Laryea and Selorm Branttie
It is obvious that those leading the fight against the coronavirus are the frontline health workers who put their lives at risk to save others yet, these frontline workers were lacking Personal Protective Equipment (PPE's) to protect themselves in the COVID-19 fight.
In view of this, Mr Derek Laryea who works with the Telecommunication Chamber, made an appeal on his Facebook page to solicit for funds to purchase these PPE's.
Fortunately, he was able to raise enough funds together with Vice-President of Imano Africa, Selorm Branttie to purchase some PPE's for health workers who called for them.
4. Afi Antonio
The Afi Antonio Foundation, which was founded by Afi Antonio, has distributed many food items to needy Ghanaians who have been affected by the lockdown exercise.
Gari, sugar, milk powder, sardine, milo, biscuits and water were all distributed to people on the street and also to some residents of the Tema New Town area.
5.Gina Mimi Love
YEN.com.gh has sighted photos of a young Ghanaian lady who has chosen to touch the lives of people living in her neighbourhood by creating a tap outside her house for them to source from it.
After President Akufo-Addo's directive instructing the Ghana Water Company to suspend the payment of water bills for the next three months, Gina Mimi Love took giant strides to help the deprived in her community have a piece of this privilege.
