THE Finatrade Group has presented a cheque for GH¢10,000 to the Otumfuo Charity Foundation.
The group also presented 40 bags of rice and six boxes of assorted wine valued at about GH¢2,000 to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, to support activities marking his 10 years on the Golden Stool.
Top officials of the group, including board member, Mr Kwame Pianim; Managing Director, Mr Nabil Moukarzel, and Corporate Affairs Director, Mr John Awuni, made the presentation after participating in activities marking the 59th birthday of the Asantehene at the Manhyia Gardens last Wednesday.
In an interview, Mr Awuni said the Asantehene’s 10 years on the Golden Stool had brought hope not only to Asanteman but the entire country.
He said through the Otumfuo Education Fund and other initiatives, the chains of hopelessness in a number of homes had been broken.
Mr Awuni said Finatrade saw the Otumfuo Charity Foundation as yet another positive step towards building on what the Asantehene had achieved over the past 10 years.
“We at Finatrade are, therefore, happy to be contributing to support a worthy cause,” he stressed.
He pledged the continuous support of Finatrade to Manyhia as the palace tried to address some of the challenges facing the people.
The Corporate Affairs Director expressed the hope that the country’s economic environment would continue to improve to enable businesses contribute to national development.
Mr Awuni disclosed that Finatrade had made proposals to market the products of Aveyime Rice Project and was waiting for a favourable response from them.
Nana Pambour, President of the foundation, received the cheque and thanked Finatrade for the gesture.
