The GCB Bank has donated 40 jumbo poly tanks to the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development (MLGRD). The tanks are to be distributed to markets in Accra and parts of the country.
The donation was in response to a request to the bank by the ministry as part of the efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Managing Director (MD) of the bank, Mr Ray Sowah, who made the presentation on behalf of the bank, indicated that they had made substantial contributions in the fight against the pandemic but felt this was special because of the need to address the congestion in the markets and ensure social distancing.
The ministry, on behalf of the assemblies, expressed its appreciation to GCB Bank for the donation.
A Deputy Minister of MLGRD, O B Amoah, who received the items in the presence of the Mayor of Accra, Adjei Sowah, said the donation to the markets will lead to better arrangements and provision of water in various major market centres.
