The Juaboso-Bia Forestry Commission in the Western North Region has donated 300 mono-desks to the Juaboso Bia West and Bia East district assemblies.

The donation is to help ease infrastructural deficit in some public schools in the districts.

During the presentation at Sefwi Adabokrom in the Bia East district, manager for Juaboso-Bia forestry commission, Mr Mark Aidoo indicated they have distributed 100 mono desks to each district.

He said this is was in response to a call from the district assemblies concerning a lack of desks for pupils in their schools.

Mr Mark Aidoo explained that the 300 mono desks were made from the woods that have been left over by timber contractors in the area, with support from saw millers in the districts.

According to him, this is the first of its kind and it has been his ultimate goal to utilize those left over timbers for a useful purpose.

Bia East district director, Mr Abdul Karim Abdullah, after receiving the desks expressed his deepest gratitude for the donation.

He thanked the manager and his staff for their timely intervention.

Mr Abdullah asked for more help as an infrastructural deficit is a major challenge facing the district.

He said the donation will help them ease the burden on school furniture.

Again, he appealed to all the beneficiary districts to make maximum use of the desks and practice good maintenance culture to ensure their longevity.
