Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research Receives Donation from Consolidated Bank Ghana

Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR) has received a Gh¢ 100,000 donation from Consolidated Bank Ghana (CBG) to support the fight against COVID-19. 

Mr. Daniel Wilson Addo, Managing Director of CBG who made the donation on behalf of the bank noted that the vital role of NMIMR in combating the novel coronavirus deserves every support from corporate Ghana. He added that with government’s strategy to test more people, the resources of NMIMR could deplete at a faster rate and facilities overstretched hence the need to support the Institute to acquire the requisite resources to carry out its mandate to curb the spread of the virus in the country.

The Managing Director further explained that the donation was part of the bank’s Gh¢1milion commitment to fighting the novel coronavirus. “The bank has lined up a number of activities and interventions to assist in curbing the spread of the virus. We are committed to support selected institutions in the Covid-19 fight as well as facilitating education and awareness about the virus”, he noted.

Professor Abraham Kwabena Anang commended CBG for the donation indicating that this complements government’s effort to support the fight of COVID-19.
