The Ghanaian Canadian Association of Ontario (GCAO) led by its youth wing is organizing a fundraiser to help the Ghana Government to fight the Coronavirus back home.

According to Mr. Emmanuel Duodu, the President of GCAO, ” since the outbreak of the virus in Ghana, there has been an increased number of people affected by this pandemic. Healthcare centres are overwhelmed and many families are struggling.

“The Ghanaian Community in Canada in collaboration with the Ghana Mission is launching an appeal to all Ghanaians and friends of Ghana to support Ghana in this time of pandemic crisis.

Ghana has issued a lockdown restricting the movement of people in Accra and Kumasi. This has affected the local community, seniors and children and those experiencing homelessness in the various communities.”
