The Institute for Environment and Sanitation Studies (IESS) on December 16, 2020 donated a TATA pick up vehicle to the Environmental Health Services Unit of the Physical Development and Municipal Services Directorate (PDMSD) of the University of Ghana in a short ceremony. The Provost of the College of Basic and Applied Sciences (CBAS), Prof. Daniel Asiedu made the presentation on behalf of the Institute and admonished the Unit to use the vehicle judiciously for improved service delivery.
Receiving the donation on behalf of the Director of the PDMSD, Mr. Gershon Adu noted that given the significant role the unit is already playing, and in part with the collaboration of the Institute, the donation would go a long way to further improve the work of the Environmental Health Services Unit. He was grateful to the Institute for the gesture indicating that it would be put to good use.
The Director of the Institute, Prof. Appeaning Addo on the other hand reiterated that the donation forms part of the Institute’s continual support and efforts towards the delivery of environmental and sanitation services within the University.
