National Peace Ambassador Clemence Gyato extended his benevolence to the doorsteps of street porters, popularly referred to as ‘Kayayei’ and persons living with disabilities in parts of Accra.
The exercise came off at the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) and forms part of annual efforts by the ambassador to fete and donate to less privileged persons in society.
Mr Gyato, who is notable for his role in the resolution of the Alavanyo-Nkonya dispute, was joined by the Mayor of Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), Mohammed Adjei Sowah.
Also on hand were actor Kwadwo Nkansah Lilwin and broadcaster Abeiku Santana, among others, were at the new AMA office to help distribute 2000 hot meals, 1500 packs of water and 1500 packs of drinks plus assorted items.
Beneficiary areas present at the gathering are Kayayees from Osu, Tema station, Darkuma, Tudu, Agbobloshie, Zongo, Fadama, Nima and the Cocoa Marketing Board (CMB).
There was a dance challenge between the various Kayayoo communities and the physically challenged persons there.
Actor cum comedian Lilwin also entertained them with an awesome performance.
Speaking at the gathering, the AMA boss disclosed President Nana Akufo-Addo’s plans to build a modern hostel and training centre for the porters.
In his speech, Clemence Gyato also pledged his commitment to making the plan a reality.
He also revealed that 200 people from the beneficiary areas are going to be selected for employable training skills to enhance their living.
Mr Gyato advised all present to continue to comply with the Covid-19 protocols in their daily activities.
