GHACEM cement and Sandvik Mining and Construction Companies have contributed their quota to the rebuilding and rehabilitation of Appiatse on Monday, 28th February 2022 with their respective donations.
Ghacem during their turn presented a letter for 1,700 bags of cement which amounts to GHS85,000 as their donation to support the fund.
Mr. Benny Fiifi Ashun, the Marketing and Public Relations Manager who made the presentation on behalf of the company said “GHacem Foundation has been in the business of supporting the construction of schools and hospitals with bags of cement all over the country and so it is not out of place to donate two trucks of cement for the rebuilding of the Appiatse community which will definitely have schools and hospitals. Per our line of duty as the foundation, we feel compelled to also send in this donation.”
He took the opportunity to announce that the GHacem Foundation is always ready to support any project which seeks to build schools or hospitals with a good number of cement bags on request through applications.
Meanwhile, Sandvik Mining and Construction Company also presented a cheque of GHS65,000 as their bit to help build Appiatse into a Green, sustainable and model community.
The Business Mine Manger, Mr. Daniel Korsah in his submission said as part of their corporate social responsibility and as a responsible partner to the Ghana Chamber of Mines, they see it as a duty to help rebuild Appiatse.
In her remark, the Chairperson of the Appiatse Support Fund Committee, Rev. Dr. Joyce Roselind Aryee expressed her gratitude to both companies for their donations.
She promised to ensure that the reconstruction committee who will be the actual users of the cement are put in the know of their donation.
She said she is impressed with Ghana’s response to the Appiatse disaster but also called for more support from all and sundry.
