5000 gallons of hand sanitizers donated by McDan Foundation to fight COVID-19
Over 5000 gallons of hand sanitizers have been donated to selected hospitals, security agencies, traditional authorities, organisations and communities across the country in an effort to support the spread of COVID-19
The donation exercise, led by the Chairman of McDan Groupe of Companies, Mr Daniel McKorley and in partnership with Maxtachem LTD, producing 4.5litre gallons of sanitizers made from locally sourced raw materials to aid in the preventive measures against the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
This comes on the back of President Nana Akufo-Addo’s request to have indigenous entrepreneurs and investors produce locally made hand sanitizers and potent drugs to mitigate the spread of coronavirus.
As a result, Mr McKorley through McDan Foundation responded to this by teaming up with a local manufacturer to distribute hand sanitizers to the public to offer their support.
According to Mr Mckorley, he said it was in the interest of his outfit to offer assistance to avoid the spread of the global pandemic through precautionary measures.
Noting that the sanitizers, when put to use would help curb the possible spread of the deadly virus which has seen 24 cases so far 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,” Mr 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".
In addition, Mr McKorley has pledged to support ten selected entrepreneurs financially with varied working capital to produce hand sanitizers in commercial quantities.
These steps underway, he believes would support the quest to mitigate the spread of the pandemic and help innovative entrepreneurs to build sustainable businesses in the country.
