Story: Kwame Asare Boadu, Offinso
STAFF of the Nhyiaeso Prestige Centre of the Barclays Bank in Kumasi have donated musical instruments valued at about GH¢1,000 (¢10 million) to the Disabled Centre at Offinso in the Ashanti Region.
The donation formed part of the bank’s “make a difference day” during which staff organised community activities to support the needy in society.
Making the presentation, the Prestige Branch Manager of the bank, Mr Kofi Ameyaw-Peprah, said even though the bank offered very good training to the inmates of the centre, it lacked equipment for entertainment activities, that was why the staff of the bank decided to go in to support the inmates to make life comfortable for them.
Mr Ameyaw-Peprah advised the inmates not to think that their physical state was a barrier to their functioning, and instead strive to become useful citizens of the nation.
The Director of the institute, Mr Barima Antwi, thanked the bank for the support and gave the assurance that the instruments would be put to good use.
