The GCB Bank has donated 40 jumbo poly tanks to the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development for distribution to markets in Accra and other parts of the country.
The donation was in response to a request to the Bank by the Ministry as part of the efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
Making the presentation at the premises of the Ministry on Wednesday, May 6, 2020, the Managing Director of GCB Bank, Mr. Ray Sowah, indicated that they had made substantial contributions in the fight against the pandemic but felt “this was special because of the need to address the congestion in the markets and ensure social distancing”.
A deputy Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Hon. O. B. Amoah, received the items on behalf of the ministry.
He expressed the ministry’s appreciation to GCB Bank and promised that “the donation to the markets will lead to better arrangements and provision of water in our major markets”.
Present at the event was the Mayor of Accra, Hon. Adjei Sowah.
