McDan Foundation donates 5000 sanitizers to hospitals, others

The Chairman of the McDan Group of Companies, Mr Daniel McKorley has distributed over 5000 gallons of hand sanitizers to selected hospitals, security agencies, traditional authorities, organisations and communities across the country in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Mr McKorley in partnership with Maxtachem LTD produced 4.5litre gallons of sanitizers made from locally sourced raw materials to come to the aid of several Ghanaians following reported shortages amid the coronavirus pandemic which has hit the country.

Following President Nana Akufo-Addo’s request to have indigenous entrepreneurs and stakeholders produce locally developed hand sanitizers and potent drugs to mitigate the spread of coronavirus, Dr McKorley through his McDan Foundation has responded by teaming up with a local manufacturer to distribute to the public.

In an interview with Graphic Online, Dr Mckorley said it was in the interest of his outfit to help avoid the spread of the global pandemic by applying precautionary measures.

He noted that the sanitizers when put to use would help curb the possible spread of the deadly virus which has seen 24 cases recorded in the country.

“I decided to respect the President’s call by teaming up with Maxtachem LTD to produce hand sanitizers to be distributed to the public and I believe it will help in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic,” Dr McKorley said.

“We are to adhere to the precautionary measures to help avoid the spread and I believe this donation when put to use would help in the course".

Meanwhile, Dr McKorley has pledged to financially support ten selected entrepreneurs with varied amounts as working capital to produce hand sanitizers in commercial quantities.

These initiatives he believes would support the quest to mitigate the spread of the pandemic and help innovative entrepreneurs to build a sustainable business.
