Management of the Crime Check Foundation (CCF), a crime prevention advocacy organisation, has presented 100 bags of rice and 30 bags of sugar to some women in Lamashegu and Zogbli in the Tamale North Constituency of the Northern Region.
This is to ease the financial burden on the women and their families during this Covid-19 pandemic.
Mr Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng, the CCF Executive Director, told the GNA after the donation that Management decided to respond to calls for support from the two communities and “we were shocked to see the number of people who desperately need help”.
The effects of Covid-19 and the Ramadan fast was making life unbearable for residents of those communities, he said.
He expressed gratitude to the Foundation’s donors and partners for their support in providing for the less-privileged in society.
Mr Kwarteng said Management would extend its activities to the northern part of the country to support the vulnerable and called on non-governmental organisations to continue to complement government’s efforts to provide for the citizenry.
He used the opportunity to educate residents on the Covid-19 pandemic and urged them to observe the safety measures.
He promised to provide the women with face masks and sanitizers.
Madam Juliana Bawa, a representative of the Tamale North MP, Alhassan Suhuyini, expressed gratitude to the CCF for the gesture.
