The Ghana Rugby Football Union (GRFU) have extended their warm gratitude to Africa Rugby for their supports in this coronavirus period.

Rugby Africa has been assisting its member associations since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic which virtually brought everything in the world to a standstill.

The Africa Rugby Covid-19 Solidarity Fund is to support its members in keeping the safety protocols and also help provide some essential items to its playing bodies.

These activities span from the testing of players and management, providing medication to boost one’s immune system, educating the Rugby family on the safety protocols, providing face mask, to the donation of food items.

It would be recalled that recently, the Ghana Rugby Football Union donated some personal protective equipment and essential vitamins to some communities with the support of Africa Rugby to aid in the prevention against the devastating disease.

They also assisted the Ghana Rugby Football Union to begin an awareness campaign to propagate the importance of practicing Coronavirus safety protocols.

Ghana Rugby Football Union has tested over 150 times for the Coronavirus of which twelve of its members tested positive.

All these among others is the support that AfricaRugby has given to the Ghana Rugby Football Union in this new-normal and it is greatly appreciated.
