Covid-19 Trust Fund debunks allegations of misappropriation

The Board of Trustees and Management of the Covid-19 National Trust Fund have dismissed allegations that they have misappropriated funds donated to help fight the spread of the coronavirus disease.

There is a claim that the Trust Fund spent more than ¢250 million to procure hand sanitisers.

But in a press statement dated December 23, 2021, the Administrator of the Fund, Dr William Asare, stated that as of December 21, the Trust Fund had received a cumulative cash contribution of ¢59,828,480.36, an amount lower than what had been quoted in the allegation.

“So far, the Trust Fund has disbursed an amount of ¢49,763,135.32 towards the funding of various projects, as well as the provision of PPEs and other medical items to hospitals, health centres, CHPS Compounds, medical facilities, Covid-19 Care Management Centres, Covid-19 Isolation Centres and a few research activities,” it stated.
