In response to a call from government that corporate bodies should support the National Sanitation Day campaign, Multi-Pro Private Ltd has donated litter bins to the University of Ghana, Legon.
The presentation of the litter bins to the University is to support the educational institution to keep a clean and healthy environment suitable for academic work.
Multi-Pro Private Ltd, which is the local representatives of Indomie Noodles, has since the introduction of the National Sanitation campaign been presenting litter bins to various institutions, including the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, the 37 Military Hospital, key market centres and lorry parks.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony, the Brands Manager, Shine Akiem Torsoo, underscored the importance of the sanitation exercise and said as a company in the foods sector, hygiene was paramount.
He spoke of plans to provide additional litter bins to the University and also collaborate with the University on other initiatives.
The Dean of Students Affairs, Dr. James Adomako was grateful for the donations and said they would put them to good use.
He said the University has one of the cleanest campuses in the country, adding that the litter bins would sustain the clean environment.
Head of Public Affairs at the University of Ghana, Mrs Stellar Amoah said besides keeping the environment clean, the University also has an Institute for Environment and Sanitation Studies, which undertakes research and other important studies into sanitation.
This, she said, underscores the importance the university attaches to the issue of environment and sanitation.
Mrs Amoah was grateful for the donation and hoped that both institutions would sustain the relationship and look at other areas of mutual interest.
