NWOYA: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2021
Huawei, a Chinese technology giant, has boosted the efforts of Nwoya district to fight Covid-19 with an assortment of personal protective equipment (PPEs)
The donation included 600 litres of hand sanitizers, 600 litres of liquid soap, 50 boxes of surgical masks and 50 boxes of face masks, 50 boxes of disposable gloves and 30 temperature gadgets.
The items were channeled through the Judith Peace foundation, a registered charity organization founded by the Nwoya district woman Member of Parliament, Judith Peace Achan following a joint lobby by the MP and Richard Todwong, the National Resistance Movement Party Secretary General.
Achan said the PPEs came timely when Nwoya District is on the red list of Covid-19 as revealed by President Yoweri Museveni during the recent address on the national state of Covid-19.
The items are expected to help frontline health workers when they are testing and treating the Covid-19 patients.
On his part, Todwong commended the Chinese company for its generous assistance with PPEs saying that their action cements a friendship he created while on an important study tour in one of China best Universities recently.
He also applauded Achan for working hard and lobbying for assistance for her people, advising that she continues knocking on more doors to get support the people of Nwoya.
“An empowered community is a healthy community and health is wealth,” Todwong said.
