Mr. Mensah asserted that each mask was padded with foam apart from the cloth to prevent viruses from penetrating. He entreated everyone in the University and the Effutu community to prioritise the wearing of nose mask as it is the best precautionary measure to control and limit the spread of the virus.
Receiving the items on behalf of the University, the Director, Health Services, Dr. (Mrs.) Beth Offei-Awuku was enthralled by the benevolence of Gracelove Creations to a famous institution like UEW. She, on behalf of Management, thanked Gracelove Creations for the unexpected kind gesture.
