LAWEH DONATES FACE SHIELDS TO MEDIA HOUSES
Laweh Open University College has donated a total of 90 pieces of Laweh branded face shields to Citi TV, Citi FM, UTV and its sister radio stations.
50 pieces were donated to UTV, Peace FM, Okay FM, Neat FM, and 40 pieces to Citi TV and Citi FM.
The donation to the two media houses, according to Prof. Goski Alabi, President of Laweh University College, was the first of such donations planned for media houses, and others would soon receive theirs.
Explaining the rationale behind the kind gesture, Marketing and Communications Manager of Laweh, Ebenezer T. Hanson, who led a four-man delegation to the media houses, disclosed that the act was in consonance with the Corporate Social Responsibility Policy of the University. And it also affirms Laweh’s abiding faith in the media as an indispensable partner in the developmental efforts of the nation, hence the need to keep safe in order to deliver on their responsibilities to the citizens of Ghana, especially against the backdrop of COVID-19.
Mr Hanson observed that the University recognises the media as front-liners in the fight against the spread of coronavirus and therefore their staff members deserve society’s protection.
” Laweh Open University College is of the firm conviction that these branded face shields will arm you further in your war against the pandemic,” he told the recipients.
He revealed that Laweh has become a Partner in Learning (PIL) of the Institute of Chartered Accountants (Ghana) to offer tuition to students pursuing the professional programme of the Institute, that is, Parts One, Two and Three examinations.
He added that Laweh is currently collaborating with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in its recognition of the latter’s MicroMasters programme credentials for Laweh’s MSc. Development Economics and MBA Programmes. Thus, a Masters at Laweh, also gives one a MicroMasters from MIT.
Mr Hanson further disclosed that Laweh is collaborating with some Indian institutions to expand its frontiers.
The three other delegates of the Laweh Team were Michael Kubi, Consulting Member; Gabriel King Akpaloo, Member of Marketing Strategy Team; and Alan Tee, Multimedia Officer.
Receiving the items on behalf of Citi TV and Citi FM, Matthew Idun, Finance and Administrative Manager, expressed Citi’s profound gratitude for the donation and commended Laweh for recognising the station as a front-liner in the fight against the spread of the Coronavirus.
Mr Idun hoped the face shields would further equip them in their efforts at helping to stop the spread of the virus.
At UTV and its sister radio stations, Nana Yaa Konadu, broadcaster and producer, was grateful for the donation and praised Laweh for the exemplary act. Nana Konadu assured that the items would serve as encouragement in their stations’ relentless efforts at helping to curb the spread of COVID-19.
