The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) with support from C. Woermann (Ghana) Limited, has distributed assorted food items to over 400 residents of Avenor in the Okaikwei South Sub-Metropolitan District.
The items, which include rice, oil, and tin tomatoes were presented to the aged, persons living with disabilities (PWDs) as well as pregnant women as part of efforts to help them this time of turmoil.
Mr Alfred Asiedu Adjei, the Presiding Member (PM) of the AMA and the Assemblyman for Avenor Electoral Area who led in the distribution of the items expressed gratitude to C. Woermann, dealers in European technical equipment for the assistance.
He said the food items were critical needs of the people and had come at an opportune time since most vulnerable people especially the aged, PWDs, and pregnant women may be out of work.
Mr Carsten H.R. Duwer, the Managing Director of C. Woermann said the company had located in Avenor for over 30 years and that it had been part of the community, hence the decision to support the Assembly in its effort to meet the needs of the people.
Mr Alex Donkor a beneficiary thanked the Presiding Member and the C. Woermann Ghana Limited for the gesture and appealed to other companies and philanthropists to also come to their assistance since the COVID-19 outbreak had rendered most of them economically vulnerable.
