The Directorate of Finance Welfare Association has donated items valued at GH ¢15, 000 to the Cape Coast School for the Deaf.
The items included two desktop computers, assorted food items and toiletries.
Presenting the items, the Chairman of the Association, Mr. Victorious Hagan Yamoah, said the donation was their corporate social responsibility to the School. He said the Association decided to make a positive impact in the lives of students in the School as part of its Silver Jubilee celebrations.
Mr. Yamoah said members of the Association were thrilled by the great talents of the students through their musical performance. “We will go and reflect over what we have seen here then mobilise ourselves to support the School as often as we can,” he noted.
Receiving the items, the Assistant Head of the School in-charge of Administration, Mr. Emmanuel Abbiew, thanked members of the Association for their kindness. He called on other associations and organisations to emulate the good example of the Directorate of Finance Welfare Association,
Mr. Abbiew said the School depended on subvention from government which normally delayed and, therefore, had to rely on donations from philanthropists and organisations for the running of the School most of the times. “Your donation has come at the right time and we assure you that what you brought to us will be used for the upkeep of the children,” he indicated.
The students entertained members of the Association with musical performance.
