Kazo district COVID-19 task force has today, Tuesday September 21 received a donation of protective gears from the United States Agency for International Development – USAID Local Partner health Services, ANKOLE TASO the implementer, as part of their efforts to support the COVID-19 response in seven facilities in the district.
The team from USAID local partner health services Ankole, led by Abraham Openy has handed over the donations including sanitizers both in big bottles and small bottle, table spray, oxygen checking machines, medical masks, temperature guns, among others, to seven health centres in the district.
While handing over the items, Openy said they noticed there is service delivery challenge in this COVID 19 pandemic, which compelled them to extend support to the health front line workers in the district.
Kazo Resident District Commissioner, Ruth Sabiiti Kashaka, who doubles as the COVID-19 task force chairperson hailed the USAID Local Partner health Services ANKOLE, the Aids Support Organisation – TASO implementer for the donations, adding that the front line health workers will confidently do their work.
Kazo district chairperson, Rev Samuel Mugisha Katugunda also appreciated the donation noting that they will greatly complement their efforts to fight COVID-19 in the benefiting facilities.
