Cenpower Generation Company Limited, an Independent Power Producer, has committed ¢200,000 to the Covid-19 Trust Fund.
The Fund was established by President Akufo-Addo as part of efforts to raise resources for combating the effects of the virus in the country.
A Director of Cenpower, Dr Jimmy Heymann, on behalf of the Cenpower Board of Directors, management and staff, presented the cheque at the Jubilee House to the National Covid-19 Trust Fund Board of Trustees.
He said Cenpower remains committed to contributing to the development of Ghana and stands firmly with the government and the people of Ghana at this difficult time in the efforts to address the effects of Covid-19 on the country.
He added that through this contribution, we hope to touch as many lives as possible just as the electricity we produce reaches different homes in Ghana.
He further encouraged that “there are brighter days ahead for us all. Through standing together, Ghana is sure to overcome the problems arising from the Covid-19 pandemic.
“It is important though to observe all recommendations on social distancing, regular use of sanitizers and handwashing”.
The Chairperson of the Board of Trustees for the National Covid-19 Trust Fund, Madam Sophia Akuffo, received the cheque on behalf of the Board.
The CEO of Cenpower, Theophilus Sackey, reiterated Cenpower’s commitment to continue generating electricity in a least-cost, reliable and environmentally sustainable manner to meet national requirements.
“We recognise that availability of power is critical, especially for the economy and the health sector at this time and we will continue to deliver on this mandate”, he assured.
