As part of its programme of activities for the 2019 Christmas season, Karpowership Ghana, one of the independent power producers in the Republic of Ghana has extended its benevolence to New Horizon Special School in Accra, capital of the West African nation.
The company donated food items ranging from bags of rice, oil, tomatoes puree, toiletries, drinks, biscuits among others.
The donation, which is a part of the company’s corporate social responsibility activities, has become an annual tradition to support the less privileged during the Yuletide.
The Corporate Communications Specialist of Karpowership Ghana, Ms. Sandra Amarquaye explained that the purpose of the donation was to give back to society.
“For us at Karpowership we are filled with joy when we put smiles on the faces of these young ones especially around this time of the year to spread the good cheer. As we are all aware Christmas is season of giving and we hope these items donated will help bridge some needs of the children in this home”.
Ms Sandra Amarquaye added that the company’s passion is to impact lives in every area it can. ‘Our philosophy as a company is that we believe we live in one world therefore wherever we find ourselves we need to support the society.
‘We always want to impact lives and improve the well-being of the less-privileged in society through meaningful interventions such as this”
The Principal of the New Horizon Special School Mrs. Vanessa Adu-Akorsah expressed her gratitude to Karpowership and said the School was privileged to have Karpowership Ghana remember the children during this festive season.
“The children here would also have something to celebrate with during this season.
She also admonished parents and the general public to welcome and relate well with children with special needs rather than making unsavory comments about them as this negatively affects their self-worth and human dignity.
