KARPOWERSHIP GHANA Company Limited has made donation to some 300 Muslims in the Manhean Community in Tema in the Greater Accra Region to celebrate this year’s Eid al-Fitr festival.
Items donated include rice, oil canned fish and beverages, among other items.
Giving the items to the community, Corporate Communications Specialist of Karpowership, Miss Sandra Amarquaye, explained that the donation forms part of the corporate social responsibility activities of Karpowership Ghana to celebrate the Muslims in areas where they operate.
This donation, she stated, was to celebrate the Muslims for successfully completing Ramadan, a 30-day dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan.
She stressed that the initiative was part of Karpowership’s principle to always support and give back to communities in which it operates.
“We are grateful to Allah for strengthening you all throughout the period of Ramadan. As Karpowership, we have enjoyed a good relationship with you since we began operating in this community. We recognize the importance of this festival and therefore this is our way of commemorating the day with you. We take the opportunity to wish you well in this new season,” she said.
She urged the beneficiaries to appreciate the gesture by praying for peace and tranquility in Tema, Greater Accra and the entire country.
According to her, as a strategic partner, Karpowership is committed to Ghana’s development and will continue providing all Ghanaians reliable, sustainable and affordable electricity hence the need for the public to also support them in diverse ways to succeed.
The Imam of Tema Manhean Central Mosque, Mr. Idrus Shaibu, who received the items on behalf of the Muslims in the community expressed gratitude to Karpowership for the kind gesture.
He indicated, “Karpowership has constantly showed support to us since they began operations here and we are grateful. Many families will indeed benefit from the items you have brought.”
Since it began operations in Ghana, the company has engaged in several projects in the Tema Manhean community such as providing bursary for brilliant but needy students, and adopting and fully furnishing a computer laboratory. More recently, the company embarked on a clean-up exercise with residents of the Tema Manhean community.
