“We demonstrated the true meaning of Christmas through donations as part of ‘The ADK Gifts of Hope Project’,” the Industry Personality of 2016 said after a series of philanthropic initiatives last year.
“It was a life-changing experience not only for the beneficiaries but for members of the Consortium who saw how our support touched the lives of people”, an elated Mr Krakue said.
Last year, a team from ADK Consortium led by Project Administrator, Frimpomaa A. Ayim and Human Resources Manager, Marklina Dadzie, commenced the project with a visit to the children’s ward of the Accra Psychiatric Hospital at Asylum Down in Accra.

They were there to put smiles on the faces of the children and also to ascertain the needs of the patients. The team presented assorted items including bags of rice, gallons of soyabean oil, boxes of biscuits, cartons of Milo and powdered milk, toiletries, boxes of Indomie, dettol, canned fish and soft drinks.
The team then proceeded to the Potters Village Orphanage at Dodowa to also make a donation with items similar to the earlier donation done.
After the donation, the children entertained the ADK team with a choreography and sang songs to express their joy and gratitude for the kind gesture.
Members of the consortium which won the Civil Engineering Consultancy of the Year 2015 and Architectural Company of the Year 2016 team encouraged them to think positive about their future and not to allow their environment to affect them negatively.
They were also motivated to believe in themselves, aim for greatness and strive to achieve excellence in all their endeavors.
Management of ADK Consortium has indicated its commitment to the annual charity project and believes that the needy and underprivileged children in society can have a bright future if given the needed support and assistance.
