Accra, Mar. 5, GNA – The MTN Ghana Foundation is to distribute 270,000 nose masks to six schools in the Korle Klottey Municipality of the Greater Accra Region.

The donation is in response to Ghana Health Service’s alert for the public to mask up due to the climatic conditions being experienced in recent times.

Mr Ebenezer Terkpeh, Education Portfolio Advisor, MTN Ghana Foundation, said the schools include the St. Barnabas Anglican School and Khairiyah Islamic Basic School in the Korle Klottey Municipality.

He advised all to wear masks often to stay away from climate related diseases.
