GWCL donates to health staff in four hospitals

The Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) has distributed 500 packs of bottled water produced by the company to four hospitals in Accra to support medical practitioners in the frontline of the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

They are the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, which received 200 packs; the Greater Accra Regional Hospital, the 37 Military Hospital and the Tema General Hospital, which got 100 packs each.


The Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Mrs Cecilia Dapaah, who led a team of officials from the GWCL to make the presentation, assured the hospitals that the water would be replenished when needed.

She noted that it was important for medical officers to have adequate access to drinking water, as it was essential for them to drink a lot of water, and commended them for putting in their best to fight the virus.

Tanker services

Mrs Dapaah stressed that water was essential in the effort by Ghanaians to take precautions against the COVID-19.

She urged those who offered water tanker services to improve their services in communities and advised them against price hikes, saying that would prevent a lot of people from getting access to water.

She indicated that the GWCL had put forward emergency numbers which one could call 24/7 and get served.


The Chief Executive Officer of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Dr Daniel Asare; the Commander of the 37 Military Hospital, Brigadier General Nii Adjah Obodai; the Medical Director of the Tema General Hospital, Dr Richard Anthony, and the Medical Director of the Greater Accra Regional Hospital, Dr Emmanuel Srofenyo, receiving the water on behalf of their facilities, thanked the GWCL for the gesture, and stressed their commitment to work together with stakeholders to fight the virus.

They called on entities to support the facilities with the necessary personal protective equipment.
