Highly rated foam manufacturer, Latex Foam, has donated one thousand pieces of medical mattresses to the Ministry of Health to support the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The gesture, according to the General Manager of Latex Foam, Mr Salim G. Nahlous, was in response to the national call to individuals and corporate entities to support the government's fight against the global health crisis, which has put a lot of strain on the country's medical facilities because of its spread across the country.

Presenting the items on behalf of his company, Mr Nahlous said the 1,000 mattresses covered the current needs of the ministry, but noted also that Latex Foam was always ready to assist further because of the implications of the pandemic on the country's healthcare system and society at large.

Receiving the items, the Minister of Health, Mr Kwaku Agyemang Manu, thanked Latex Foam for their immense support and said the mattresses were very essential in the healthcare delivery in view of the critical nature of the management of COVID-19 which has become a shared responsibly of all.

Latex Foam, recently granted Superbrand status for the second time in seven years, has been associated with good corporate social responsibility in many areas of national development, such as donation to support the annual National Farmers' Day celebration, support for needy and brilliant students of the University of Ghana, among others.
