As part of helping the nation fight against the spread of COVID-19, B5 Plus Ltd, a steel manufacturing company located in the Prampram Industrial enclave is giving free oxygen to both government and private hospitals in need of it at this critical time.

Salvation Army Hospital at Agona District in the Central Region and LEKMA Hospital in Greater Accra took delivery of twenty-four (24) filled free oxygen on Friday 15th May 2020.

Mr. Mike Thakwani, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of B5 Plus Ltd in an interview noted that in these difficult times of COVID-19 outbreak, his company would want to give free oxygen to Ghanaians.

The motivation for this kind gesture, according to Mr. Thakwani is that “Mother Ghana has given us a lot, this is the time to give back towards the poor in society, who are not able to afford. “Let us push ourselves a little trying to help mankind. If we are able to do this Ghana becomes the winner”.

He further pointed out that Hospitals from Ashiaman where most of the workers from his company come from have benefited from the free oxygen by providing cylinders and taking deliveries.

“Private Hospitals taking delivery of this free oxygen should also reduce their prices as a way of reciprocating so that more and more people can benefit from the free oxygen. Initially, we said the free oxygen was up to 31st of this month but we have extended it to the duration of COVID-19”.

He added that the government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic is encouraging and believes the country will soon get the pandemic behind it. He also pledged to continue to support the government in these trying times.
