A media columnist and businessman, Fadi Dabbousi, has, through his charity works, started a “Food Train” targeted at feeding over 2,000 vulnerable people in the Greater Accra Region.  The project, dubbed “Supporting the war against Covid -19 hand in hand with President Akufo-Addo”, commenced on Wednesday and is expected to continue to Sunday April 12.

So far, some residents in communities such as Achimota and Akwetyeman have benefited from the project.

According to Mr Dabbousi, who is a staunch member of the governing New Patriotic Party, the “Food Train Project” was inspired by the President’s initiative and appeal to get all hands on deck to ameliorate the suffering that the novel coronavirus pandemic has brought on Ghanaians, especially the poor and vulnerable.

He therefore called on other affluent and privileged individuals in the society to get on board to provide food for the communities affected by the partial lockdown declared by the President.

Difficult decision

He said “the President has had to make very difficult, but necessary decisions to implement stern measures, to control the COVID-19 virus, which have come along with their own challenges on society.”

“In order to assist, people must rise to the occasion and put shoulder to bumper to win this war. The President has become a beacon of hope and an example that world leaders emulate,” he added.

He further said the President alone cannot control the pandemic, adding “it behooves on all of us to carry some responsibility. That is why we need to participate to ensure that we finally win the war against the deadly coronavirus disease.”
