Gifty Twum Ampofo donates to Local Council of Churches.
The Member of Parliament (MP for Abuakwa North Municipality and Deputy Minister of Education in charge of Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET), Mrs Gifty Twum-Ampofo has donated a number of boxes of infra-red thermometer guns to the Local Council of Churches in the municipality.
The thermometer guns were to be distributed to all the churches in the municipality to help check temperatures of their members to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in the churches.
Presenting the items to the Local Council of Churches, (LCC) Mrs Twum-Ampofo explained that considering the safety protocols slated for the churches, it was necessary for every church in her municipality to get a thermometer gun to check temperatures of their members.
“I realised that among the safety protocols slated for the churches, the thermometer guns were the most expensive equipment that they would need and acquiring a number of them would be a challenge,” she said.
She added that to ease their challenge and reduce the financial burden on them, “I decided to buy them some boxes so that they can use for the time being.”
“By this, I believe that we would be able to prevent a possible spread of the coronavirus in and outside the church.”
Mrs Twum-Ampofo advised the LCC in her municipality to make good use of the equipment and observe all other safety protocols that has been slated for them.
“I would urge the churches to ensure that they observe all the safety protocols by washing their hands regularly, wear their nose masks well and observe proper respiratory hygiene among others so that we can all help to stop the spread of the coronavirus,” she advised.
For his part, the Chairman of the LCC in the Abuakwa North municipality, Reverend Isaac Ofori Asirifi on behalf of the churches thanked the MP for her kind gesture.
He explained that the churches have been able to buy some of the items with the exception of the thermometer guns which were very expensive.
“We are grateful to her for providing us with this equipment and we assure her that we would use them judiciously to prevent the spread of the virus.”
