The Appiatse Support Fund has received donations from the Volta River Authority (VRA), Mantrac Ghana Limited and Deputy Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, responsible for Mines, George Mireku Duker.
The representatives from the VRA presented a cheque of GHC200,000 to the Fund as its contribution towards the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the Appiatse community.
Speaking on behalf of VRA, Tutu Agyare, Board Chairman of VRA said their decision to contribute is not only for the short term of rebuilding the Appiatse Community but a long term commitment of investment to ensure that Appiatse township gets back on its feet.
“VRA is one of the few institutions in the country that has a lot of experience in resettlement having to do with the lake, so the extent to which the Committee requires the leverage of our experience, we can also offer that as well,” he said.
Mr. Tutu urged the Committee to keep VRA in the know of other activities leading to the reconstruction of the community, while pledging their unwavering support to the team.
On his part, Emmanuel Antwi Darkwa, the CEO of VRA, reiterated the organization’s willingness to offer assistance when needed in addition to the financial contribution made.
Addressing the team from VRA, the Chairman of the Appiatse Support Fund Committee, Rev. Dr. Joyce Rosalind Aryee, expressed her appreciation on behalf of the Committee.
“I’m glad that the Chairman mentioned that you would be willing to support us with all the knowledge that you have, not only about resettlement but also about being eco-friendly and that’s what the President has instructed. VRA, we are so grateful for your generosity”.
She re-echoed the President’s plans to make the Appiatse township an eco-friendly community and hinted that her team will soon brief the media on the Committee’s recent activities.
Dr. Sulemanu Koney, a member of the Appiatse Support Fund Committee and CEO of the Ghana Chamber of Mines, applauded VRA for the support.
Meanwhile, George Mireku Duker and Mantrac Ghana Limited donated cheques of 5,000 Ghana cedis and 32,500 Ghana cedis respectively.
