OPPORTUNITY INTERNATIONAL Savings and Loans Limited (OISL), a leading savings and loans company in Ghana, has donated 10,000 pieces of face masks to its clients.
The donation was part of OISL’s efforts at combating the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19) in the various communities it served. Clients were taken through a brief education on the Covid-19 protocols and the need for clients and their households to observe the guidelines, especially frequently washing of their hands with soap under running water, wearing of facemasks and physical distancing.
Over the past few months since the outbreak of the virus, OISL has also supported some vulnerable youth (Kayayei) and smallholder farmers in rural communities in Ghana with some PPE. Between June and July 2020, over 400 households in farming communities were provided with face masks, alcohol-based hand sanitizers and other toiletries.
Acting head of transformation, Christie Love Koufie, educated clients to strictly adhere to all the protocols outlined by the government and the Ghana Health Service. She additionally brought to their attention the fact that the deadly virus is real. She added that, it had claimed the lives of many around the world and in Ghana as well.
OISL continues to serve about 570,000 depositors with loans, deposit products and other financial and non-financial services across 10 out of the 16 regions of the country.
