Ghana Covid-19 Fund
The Ghana COVID-19 Private Sector Fund is a Private Sector-Led initiative with a mission “To provide a prompt response to the hardship and suffering arising out of the COVID-19 Pandemic.” COVID-19 is the new evil that plagues and endangers the world and our motherland Ghana. It is threatening lives, it is ravaging jobs and shattering economies. It is weakening our future!
It must be stopped. It must be defeated. Our humanity must win!
Ghana needs the support of all Her citizens to win the fight against COVID-19. Our nurses, doctors, and all other health workers need our support to protect us in this COVID 19 war. Our hospitals need our support to better equip them to to provide treatment and care. Government needs our support and co-operation to lead us to overcome COVID-19.
Ghana needs you to stand up for Her.
Ghana’s private sector accounts for the about 80% of its GDP and must therefore not sit aloof in a crisis like this.
