The year 2020 will go down in history as one of the most challenging years the world has ever witnessed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Ghana had its fair share of the global covid-19 crisis where the government was compelled to provide financial relief to cushion businesses against shocks and avert many job losses.

In the wake of these crises, some companies still managed to find a reason to support the vulnerable and the poor in the Ghanaian society.

One of such firms is Osafric Group of Companies [Osafric Ventures and Osafric Mining and Construction Company].

As part of its mission to prevent the spread of covid-19 crisis, the company led by its founder, Oscar Adu Sarfo, has once again embarked on a donation gesture by reaching out to the Nsawam Prisons during the Christmas celebrations.

The two companies presented items worth GH20,000 to the Nsawam Prisons.

The items included food items [rice, beans, yam, drinks, cooking oil etc], weedicides, anti-snake, cutlasses, air condition for the staff office.

The donations were received by the prison officers led by DSP James Afoakwa.

The officers thanked Osafric Ventures Limited for the donation at this crucial moment as covid-19 has brought the world to a standstill.

They further urged the general public and corporate Ghana to come to their aid.

Commenting, Mr. Adu Sarfo said his company heeded to their appeal and agreed with them because their educational complex have had students who are doing excellently well with good WASSCE results and first-class students at the tertiary level.

He explained that Osafric Ventures Limited’s visit to the prisons was not that of a show off but to encourage individuals and companies to remember the less privileged and the needy whose voice cannot be heard in times and seasons like this.

“We take great pride in helping not just the vulnerable in our society but also as part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The young employees from Osafric who accompanied the team acknowledged that they have learnt a great deal of lessons and that will have had positive impact on how to live their lives”.

 For his part, DSP James Afoakwa stated “Osafric Ventures Ltd visit has taught us that many people get their lives transformed whiles in jail and it’s not everyone in jail that is criminal but through a circumstance”.

Osafric Ventures is a well-established freight forwarding company founded by Oscar and Francis Sarfo.

They both have more than 10 years of experience in the transport and freight industry. Through their expertise, they were able to bring the business operations to profitability within first year of operation.

The company currently deals in clearing and forwarding, warehousing, import and export, consolidation, haulage, and general merchant.

Osafric ventures Ltd was recently awarded an honorary award as a promising freight forwarding and logistics service provider at the the 9th AGI Ghana Industry and Quality Awards 2020.
