The production and distribution of Five Thousand (5,000) gallons of hand sanitizers by the McDan Foundation is in response to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s call for the business community in the country to lend their support to the fight against the COVID-19 virus which has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Beside the 5,000 gallons of hand sanitizers that are being distributed, Dr. McKorley has also selected Ten (10) entrepreneurs who will produce hand sanitizers in the country in commercial quantities using local raw materials.
These 10 entrepreneurs will be given funding of various amounts to go into the commercial production of hand sanitizers in a bid to address what Dr. McKorley says is the artificial shortage of hand sanitizers in the country.
