The items comprise educational materials and clothes.

The donation was to mark the fifth anniversary celebrations of Naa Jemaa Matarah II, Chief of Gbankor in the Kaleo traditional area of the Region since his ascension to the Gbankor Divisional Skin.

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency, Dr Anthony Naaeke, Secretary to the group in New York who presented the items, said the donation was the first of its kind since the formation of the body.

He expressed the hope that the items would benefit the children of the community.

He said whilst outside the country, the members had read about the efforts of the Chief in enhancing education and social development of the village by seeking partnerships with individuals and groups in Ghana and abroad.

Dr Naaeke said: “We are very proud of your new role and responsibilities and we immediately thought that on the occasion of your five years on the Gbankor skin, our very first contribution should be directed through you to the children of your community in the hope of supporting your efforts.”

“We hope to continue to find ways to help local communities in Ghana, especially in the Region,” he stated.

Naa Matarah expressed gratitude to the group and pledged his resolve to continue to partner with like-minded groups and individuals in order to inspire and encourage the youth of his community to greater heights.

The group is made up of people from the Upper West and Northern regions, living in the New York area who have come together to support each other, foster closer relationship among members.
