Galaxy International school has embarked on another benevolent exercise by presenting parcels of meat to various groups in the Greater Accra Region as part of the Eid-Al-Adha celebration.
The annual event which was held in collaboration with the Ghana Turkish Corporation and Development, (TUDEC), forms part of the group’s social responsibility of reaching out to the communities in which the school operates.
Explaining the rationale behind this noble gesture, the Managing Director of Galaxy International School Mr. Mehmet Akmermer indicated that it was in line with the principles governing Eid celebrations.
This he said, during Eid- Al – Adha, Muslims around the world show compassion and good neighborliness to all and sundry.
More so, Tudec our sister company which has been the brain behind this act organised the celebration in other parts of the country and as such handed over the baton to the school this year. In total, the school distributed to about 4200 families within Accra, Tamale, Cape Coast, and Kumasi metropolis.
He stated that “festivals become real festivals when one shared joy, happiness, and belongings with others,” and added, “It is only when one shares with others that the true meaning of sacrifices is felt.”
Some of the beneficiaries expressed their profound gratitude to Galaxy International for their kind gesture and encouraged the institution to continue to reach out to the masses during such occasions.
They were extremely elated. This they said, even though in the COVID-19 era when most institutions were going through the economic crunch, they still found it needful and thoughtful to embark on this benevolent exercise.
Some of the beneficiaries include orphanages, schools for the deaf, dumb and blind, widows and other vulnerable groups.
