Ghacem Limited has supported disadvantaged communities across the country with free bags of cement for their health and education infrastructure with the start of Ghacem Cement Foundation donation ceremonies in 2022.
Institutions across the country grouped in the South and North sectors received the free bags as support for their various infrastructure projects.
At the ceremony for the Southern Sector held in Cape Coast, a total of 14,000 bags were donated to selected health and education institutions in the Central, Western, North- West, Volta, Oti, East and Greater Accra.
Assin Kushea Paramount Chief of Owirenkyi Traditional Area, Ehunabobrim Prah Agyensaim VI commended the beneficiaries for being good ambassadors in Ghacem’s quest to support the country’s development through the cement foundation.
As President of the Foundation, he gave assurances that the Foundation will continue to be transparent to ensure that the right projects are supported to drive the course.
However, he expressed concern that cement distribution in some regions is low as the regions continue to have low demand.
This, he said, is holding back development in the region and urged leaders and stakeholders from different regions to show interest and help their people apply.
In a speech read on his behalf, Ghacem’s Managing Director, Stefano Gallini congratulated the recipients and noted that Ghacem is always happy to give back to society as part of its corporate social responsibility.
“We recently donated 2 trucks to support the Appiatse Disaster Reconstruction Project, supported the Ghana Wildlife Society and other sustainable programs such as the government’s national tree planting program and we have committed to making an impact where we operate with various donations to Efia Nkwanta Hospital and Takoradi Polytechnic among others.
Ghacem, he assured, will continue to produce quality and market-relevant cement products, which urged everyone to continue patronizing Ghacem cement.
In turn, Foundation Board member Professor Audrey Gadzekpo said the Board was pleased to see the faces behind the many nominations, as the Secretariat believes in helping those who help themselves.
“Completing the application requirements demonstrates your commitment to see your projects completed and therefore we wish you good luck and may your dreams come true. However, we implore you to be ambassadors and spread the good news of Ghacem’s benevolence for Ghana to benefit”.
The head of the Ghacem Cement Foundation secretariat, Benny Fiifi Ashunb, said Ghacem hopes to remain committed to supporting education and health infrastructure in deprived areas of the country.
“We call on Ghanaians to support Ghacem by sponsoring Ghacem Super rapid (32.5R), Ghacem Super Strong (42.5R), Ghacem Extra (42.5N) and Ghacem Super Cool (32.5N) to give more strength to the company. do more for Ghana.
