FON Ltd, member of the FON Group of companies, and a proudly Ghanaian manufacturer of Paper & Tissue products, made donations of essential hygiene products such as Toilet Rolls, Multipurpose Paper Towels and Tissue Dispensers, to the Ga East Municipal Hospital, and Greater Accra Regional Hospital, in aid of the fight against COVID-19.
The delegation was led by Mr. William Boateng Ntim, General Manager of FON Ltd, and was accompanied by other members of the group who described the donation as their civic duty as local manufacturers of these essential items, and noted that the donation also serves to shed light on the capacity of the manufacturing industry in Ghana to rise up to the challenge of industrialization, in order to meet the growing needs of consumers in Ghana.
Dr. Emmanuel Srofenyoh, Medical Director at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital, who received the donation on behalf of the Hospital, described the gesture as “Overwhelming and Timely”, as these essential hygiene products are a key part of the fight against COVID-19, and continued to thank FON Ltd for demonstrating that local companies can indeed serve the increased demand for manufactured goods in Ghana, and support the nation when needed.
Dr. Ebenezer Oduro, Medical Superintendent
at the Ga East Municipal Hospital, who received the donation on behalf of the hospital, similarly thanked FON Ltd for the gesture which they believe will free up resources for the hospital to use on other critical supplies, and urged the general public to support such indigenous businesses that not only continue to invest in the economy of Ghana, but make it a point to support the nation in times of crisis.
Beginning manufacturing operations in 1997, FON Ltd is Ghana’s leading manufacturer of Tissue & Paper products such as Toilet Rolls, Multipurpose Paper Towels, Exercise Books for schools, as well as A4 Copier Paper, and continues to be a responsible corporate citizen by uplifting lives through skills development and job creation, while delivering quality products and services for every member of society.
