The Queen mother of Agogo, Nana Afrakoma Kusi Obuadum has together with the communications director of Ghana Gas, Ernest Owusu Bempah (Aboa Apapo) donated some food items to widows in Agogo.
The items included 500 bags of rice, 500 sachets of oil and cartons of sardines to be given to the aged and widows in the community.
Speaking to Salt Fm’s Opoku Ibrahim (Mayor 1), the Queen mother said after careful deliberations with Mr. Bempah, they decided to gift widows in the community with the food items because they are the most vulnerable in the community and have been greatly affected by the outbreak of the Corona virus.
Making the presentation to the widows, Mr. Bempah said; ‘as an indigene of Agogo, he could not sit idle at such a time and not help out the less privileged in the community.’
According to him he is aware of the effect of the Corona virus outbreak, and the measures government has put in place to minimize its spread highlighting one key effect has been
the lockdown which is preventing most families from going to their farms.
Mr. Bempah in return after giving out the gifts requested that the widows pray for the development of Agogo and all of its indigenes so that Agogo can develop and be known for good reasons.
The widows who received the items expressed their gratitude for the gesture and asked for God’s blessings for Nana Hemaa, Mr. Bempah and the entire Agogo Community.
Both Nana Afrakoma and Mr. Bempah advised residents to practice good hygiene and observe all safety protocols that have been announced by government to prevent the spread of the Corona virus.
