The Ghacem Cement Foundation (GCF) has delivered free bags of cement to around 300 health and educational Institutions in southern Ghana to aid their infrastructural development; the cement went to establishments in the Western, Central, Greater Accra, Eastern and Volta regions. The donation is the first of two to be carried out by the foundation this year – the Ashanti, Brong Ahafo, Northern, Upper East and Upper West regions will also receive free bags of cement in 4Q14.
Nana Prah Agyensaim VI, Chairman of the GCF, Morten Gade, Managing Director of Ghacem and member of the GCF, Dr. George Dawson-Ahmoah, Secretary of the GCF and Strategy and Corporate Affairs Director of Ghacem, and Professor Audrey Gadzekpo, member of the GCF, were all present at the ceremony in Accra. Morten Gade highlighted the progress that Ghacem has made in aiding infrastructural development across the country through its annual cement donation, particularly in the areas of health and education, noting the company’s efforts to help achieve the United Nations Millennium Development Goals of halting the spread of HIV/AIDS and providing universal primary education by 2015.
Nana Prah Agyensaim VI further stated that the GCF has donated a total of 360 000 bags of cement to over 3800 communities in Ghana and invested some GHS8.2 million in the project since 2002.
