The items include furniture, curtains, and variety of kitchenware, assorted electrical appliances and bathroom wares.
The four beneficiary institutions are United Way Ghana, Compassion Rehabilitation Centre, The Country-Side Orphanage all in Accra, and Village of Hope in Gomoa Fetteh in the Central Region.
Speaking at a ceremony in Accra, Franklin Nuamah, Deputy Regional Manager, Support Services at Newmont Ghana, said the donation was part of Newmont’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and aimed at improving the lives of the less privileged.
“As a company, helping the underprivileged is very much in keeping with value of demonstrating leadership in social responsibility” said Mr. Nuamah.
Jonathan Akuamoah, Executive Director of United Way Ghana, who received the items on behalf of the beneficiaries, commended Newmont Ghana for their continuous support. He acknowledged the immense support Newmont has offered the organization since its association with Newmont in 2006.
He said “This donation will go a long way to help the children in the various orphanages to also enjoy decent lives.”
Last year, the company also donated a vehicle and an amount of GH¢120,000 to United Way Ghana (UWG) through its Workplace Giving Program dubbed “Boa Me Na Me Mmoa Wo” which is aimed at helping the underprivileged in society.
