GLICO GROUP, as part of its corporate social responsibility, has presented a cheque for GH¢12,000.00 to the Abossey-Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association to purchase waste disposal tricycles to improve sanitary conditions at Abossey-Okai and its environs.
Presenting the cheque to the Association, Sam Yeboah, Group Head of Human Resources of GLICO Group, said that the donation formed part of GLICO’s commitment towards community enhancement projects, especially in the area of health and community development.
He further added that this initiative would rid the community of filth at Abossey-Okai and its environs in particular and Accra as a whole to curb the Cholera outbreak.
Mr. Yeboah stated that GLICO, then Gemini Life Insurance Company, started operations in 1987 from its headoffice at Abossey-Okai, now the Accra Main branch.
He reiterated that ‘a cleaner environment impacts positively on staff productivity and health and thus GLICO’s decision to heed the clarion call.’
Additionally, he advised all Ghanaians to keep their homes, offices and surroundings clean and observe personnel hygiene since Cholera is a direct consequence of poor sanitary conditions.
Mr. Yeboah pledged GLICO’s support towards the programmes of the Association.
For his part, Joseph Paddy, Chairman of the Abossey Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association, thanked GLICO for their support and urged other corporate organizations to keep their environment clean.
GLICO Group is made up of six subsidiaries namely: GLICO Life, GLICO General, and GLICO Healthcare, GLICO Financial, GLICO Pensions and GLICO Properties, which provides innovative and quality insurance and financial products and services to Ghanaians.
