He further stated that as the 2022 journey starts, members of the association should continue to hold steadfast to the Ghanaian society’s ideals of love, respect, honour, and trust.

“These are the ideas with which we can attain the development we all yearn for. It is never too late to aim for such, and I admonish every one of us to open ourselves up to these ideals and together build a Ghana Beyond Aid.”

The President of the Ghana Association of Chinese Societies & Ghana Chinese Chamber of Commerce, Tang Hong, said, “The physically challenged in society should be not only the charge of Government but also that of all well-meaning members of society.

“After all, anyone of us could find ourselves in this state one day. I am therefore riding on these words to charge and challenge other individuals, organizations and associations to join us in this noble task of celebrating the new year with the physically challenged and less privileged in our society”.
