Unilever Donates To Kumasi Academy
myxyzonline.com -Unilever Ghana on Monday, December 11 made donations of Lifebuoy soap to Kumasi Academy to help stop the Swine Flu disease outbreak which has affected teaching and learning in the school.
The move also forms part of the company’s social mission to several schools across the country to teach pupils and teachers the right way to wash their hands regularly.
100 cases of assorted variants of the Lifebuoy soap were handed over to the management of the school to be shared amongst staff and students to aid effective hand washing and hygiene.
Mrs Gladys Amoah, who represented the managing director of Unilever, Mr Ziobeieton Yeo, lauded government and school authorities for the professionalism shown over the period.
She said Unilever Ghana had already taken the campaign to several schools across the country to teach pupils and teachers the right way to wash their hands regularly, and by donating Lifebuoy soap there was a greater assurance of protection from infection causing germs.
“Unilever is committed to supporting the awareness campaign of health authorities in the fight against swine flu outbreak. An electronic poster sponsored and commissioned by Unilever is already in circulation under the campaign theme #HelpStopSwineFlu”, Mrs Gladys Amoah who is also the customer service director stated.
Mr Yeo expressed condolences to families that have lost loved ones to the disease and urged support for them.
Headmaster of the school Rev. Sylvester Osei Owusu commended Unilever for extending support to the school in its moment of need. He assured the products would be used for the purpose for which they have been donated.
About four students of Kumasi Academy died following an outbreak of Swine Flu earlier this month.
The Ghana Health Service had earlier ruled out a possible meningitis outbreak.
