The Tema North District of the Tema Region of the Electricity Company of Ghana made a donation to the Remar Ghana Orphanage in Tema as part of their corporate social responsibility.
The donation, worth GHC3,000 was presented to the Management of the Home on February 14, 2023. Items donated included rice, oil, gari, beans and water while two months’ worth of electricity bills were also paid for as part of the donation.
As the donation was made on Chocolate Day, the children received bars if chocolate from the donors.
Leading the delegation for the donation, the District Manager, of ECG Tema North District Mrs. Tamara Asomanin-Wiafe said their move follows an appeal made by management of the home, hence the gesture.
“The Management of the Home had made an appeal on Accra based Metro TV, calling for support from benevolent organisations and individuals to come to their aid as their situation was getting critical. This donation was therefore in response to the appeal made.”
She also added, that “we work within a jurisdiction where Rhema Home operates. We therefore thought it prudent to provide this support as part of our social responsibility in the interest of the public.”
To the children, she told them that they have a bright future ahead of them regardless of their current situation and that they should always remember to be thankful to the Lord.
She also promises of continued assistance to the Orphanage.
On receiving the items, the Director of the Home, Mr. Edward Gasper thanked the team for the donation indicating the donation comes at the right time to solve some months expenses they could have incur on their own.
The Management of the Tema North District was made up of the District’s representatives of the Junior and Senior Staff Unions and the Power Queens Club.
The Electricity Company of Ghana has a policy on corporate social responsibility which outlines the various areas where such must be focused on. The areas include health, education, social welfare and community and national development.
