Atlas Copco gives GH¢7,000 to support CSM vaccination in Obuasi
The Obuasi Municipal Health Directorate has received GH¢7,000.00 to support its mass CSM vaccination programme from Atlas Copco Ghana, an industrial group with world-leading positions in compressors, construction and mining equipment, power tools and assembly systems.
CSM (Cerebrospinal Meningitis), commonly referred to as meningitis, is an infection of the membrane (lining) of the brain and spine. The most prominent sign of cerebrospinal meningitis is a stiff neck with additional symptoms including severe headache, seizures, fever and vomiting.
Atlas Copco presented the cheque to the Municipal Director of Health, Dr. Akwasi Amankwah recently at Obuasi.
Dr Amankwa expressed gratitude to Atlas Copco, saying the company had always made giant strides in supporting health, education and other key programmes and projects in the Municipality.
He also noted that the money would go a long way to support not only the mass vaccination programme but also to assist the CSM sensitization exercise in Obuasi.
Presenting the cheque, Mr. Andrew Timothy, Branch Manager of the Obuasi office of Atlas Copco Ghana, stressed the company’s commitment to support the Municipality whenever the need arises.
“Atlas Copco Ghana Limited has been part of the Obuasi community since 1991 and therefore deems it as its corporate social responsibility to respond to issues that affect the community”.
