As part of its corporate social responsibility, Ghacem Limited has handed over a cheque for GH¢10,000 to the Tema Traditional Council toward the Homowo celebration.
Nana Philip Archer, Commercial Director-Ghacem who led a delegation to present the cheque on behalf the Board and Management, noted that as a loyal tenant of the Tema Traditional Area they deemed it fit to identify with the Homowo since it is an important event on the Ga calendar, adding that as a company it believes the importance of culture cannot be underestimated.
“We are proud to be associated with the Tema Traditional Council. They joined us last year during our 50thAnniversary celebration and other events. They have been supportive and we also do our part by supporting the Council’s projects, including the recent cleaning exercise organised to sanitise the entire area,” he recalled.
Ghacem, he noted, was committed to its corporate social responsibility programmes channelled through the Ghacem Cement Foundation – which has over 16 years donated about 525,000 bags valued at GH¢16.8million in support of Health and Educational Institutions in over 5,000 communities of the country. “What is being witnessed means Tema Traditional Council has not been left out.”
Nii Adjei Kraku II, Paramount Chief of the Tema Traditional Area who welcomed the Ghacem delegation to his palace to receive the donation, applauded the company for its recognition. “This is to show that as tenants you regard the owners of the land, which will spur more blessings in your operations.”
Nii Adjei Kraku II called on other corporate institutions within the Traditional Area to emulate the Ghacem example, and come forward with their donations to ensure the climax of Homowo is a success.
