Dear Volunteer,

AGM 2020 postponement and team visits to West Africa

A couple of weeks ago, we were looking forward to a Trustee meeting on the 5th of April. The situation continues to change around the world and lockdown is the norm.

In view of the current state of affairs, I have in good faith, with safety of our members in mind postponed the AGM indefinitely. The newly elected executive will run in a role as a non-Executive Trustee till the AGM officially confers the title 'New Executive'. A new date for the AGM will be agreed and published in due course. The term of office of the New Executive will be three years from the date of the AGM or as determined by the AGM and the constitution.

Also, all Motec team visits to Ghana / Nigeria / West Africa from now till mid-September all will be rescheduled. October and November teams may maintain their dates.

I urge you all to support all efforts to contain and dismantle the virus both in UK and Ghana.

The call by a member Oliver in support of medical and paramedical staff protection is laudable. I hope you will all contribute to this noble effort.

Thank you

MOTEC Life UK supports PPE for Ghana Healthcare Workers

A group of doctors from the UK and Ghana supported by the the Ghanaian Association of Doctors in  Residency are leading a campaign to improve the amount of personal protective equipment available to Ghanaian healthcare workers.  They have heard the stories from HCWs of a significant lack of personal protective equipment (PPE) at many Ghanaian facilities and have decided to help our colleagues fighting CoViD19. 

They have set up a direct link with a PPE factory who is already supplying to groups in Nigeria and UK.  Their aim is to raise enough money as quickly as possible to enable us to purchase and supply the equipment needed as soon as possible. 

They have set up a fundraising 'GOFUNDME' page and would be grateful for any donations you could make. We ask that you please share the link on to whomever you feel could help.

Please visit their website http://www.ppeforghanahealthcareworkers.com/ for more information.

 To donate please visit their GoFundMe page: 

https://www.gofundme.com/f/ppe-for-our-ghanaian-healthcare-workers

Thank you for your support and help.
