World Vision Ghana has donated assorted items valued at GH¢57, 889 to three institutions in the Sekyere East District in the Ashanti Region to facilitate their activities.
The items include reading and text-books for kindergartens, primary and junior high schools, play equipment and hand-washing materials, wellington boots and machetes for trained fire volunteers, drugs and medical equipment.
The beneficiaries were the Ahwerewa Health Centre, Ahwerewa D/A Primary School and the Ghana National Fire Service office at Ahwerewa,all in the Sekyere East District.
World Vision is a Christian humanitarian, advocacy and development organisation dedicated to working and transforming the lives of children, families and their communities worldwide, to tackle the causes of poverty and injustice.
The Atebubu Operation Base Team Leader, Mr John Kwaw Yawson, said the donation was part of the organisation’s desire to assist the Sekyere East District in its efforts at promoting the well-being of children.
He mentioned the development interventions of the World Vision to include education, health and nutrition, agriculture and water and sanitation, among others.
The District Chief Executive of Sekyere East, Mr Solomon Agyei-Mensah, presented the items on behalf of the World Vision to the beneficiaries.
He thanked the organisation for the gesture and asked for more of such support from other organisations.
He said the government and the assembly needed the support of the private sector to accelerate the pace of development of the communities.
This was because government resources alone could not meet the numerous challenges facing the country.
Mr Agyei-Mensah said that the assembly had embarked on a number of development projects many of which had been completed while others were ongoing.
