JCI executives presenting the items to Ashan Home officials
NICELY MANUFACTURED machines, which trap mosquitoes and kill them instantly, have been presented to the Ashan Orphanage Home at Denase in the Ashanti Region.
The presentation was aimed at preventing mosquitoes from biting children of the home so that they would not be infected with malaria.
The presentation was made by Junior Chamber International (JCI) Ghana, an international non-profit organization with its headquarters in the USA, which has over 200,000 members across the globe.
Led by Senator Veronica Mills Lamptey, and with support from the JCI executives in the Garden City and London, the organization presented the items, which included food items and an undisclosed amount of money, to the Home.
Senator Mills Lamptey said the presentation of the items, notably, the Mosquito Trap Machines, would help improve the health status of the orphans.
She said the donation was the second that JCI, which is noted for charity work, was making to Ashan Home, promising that her group would continue to support the needy in society.
Senator Mills Lamptey disclosed that the items presented were valued GH¢5,000.
She urged Ashan Home officials to inform JCI about the challenges facing them so that they could assist them appropriately.
Supervisor of Ashan Home, Nana Appiah Boadu, said the entity needed building materials to complete a clinic project under construction and called for public support.
He commended JCI for its continual assistance to the Home. According to him, the orphanage now has a population of 67 children.
The JCI which works with the United Nations (UN), especially in the area of health promotion, has plans of opening more chapters in Ghana so that their presence and importance would be felt by many people.
