The Lebanese community in Ghana has yet again provided scholarships and financial aid to dependants and families of 23 martyrs in a ceremony at the Ghana Police Service in Accra yesterday.
The beneficiaries were drawn from the police, immigration and prison services.
In his address, the Lebanese Ambassador to Ghana, H.E Ali Halabi, pointed out that ‘the Lebanese community who is fully integrated in the Ghanaian society and who has contributed to the economic development of Ghana strongly believes that without brave and qualified security men and women and without modern and well-equipped security services, there will be no stability in the society and no growth in the economy.
‘To the families of the martyrs, I say I bow as a sign of respect to the ultimate sacrifice of your martyrs and also to your suffering in coping.
‘I hope that this modest contribution from the Lebanese community will be of some help in your daily lives,’ he added.
H.E Halabi paid glowing tribute to the Interior Minister, Mark Woyongo, for his continued support for the educational and social programmes of the Lebanese community.
According to him, the Lebanese community with the assistance of the interior minister provided scholarships to dependants of martyrs of the army as well as needed students in many regions.
He particularly commended the Inspector General of Police, Director General of Immigration and the Prisons Service for their respective contributions in achieving the long process of the project.
