FAN Milk Limited has as part of its golden jubilee celebration, donated a special package in support of the Teshie Homowo festival.
The presentation ceremony was preceded by a three-hour clean-up exercise at the Teshie rally ground.
The Ghana National Scholarship Beneficiaries Association (GNASBA) in conjunction with the Teshie Water Sanitation Board and some social groups in the community organised the programme.
Presenting the package which comprised some of the company’s products, footballs, T-shirts and caps, the Brands Manager of Fan Milk, Mr Dziezorm Bologa, paid tribute to the forefathers who by their wisdom, used traditional bye-laws to secure and protect the land and its natural resources, which were being destroyed.
He said the grandfathers had a vision and foresight to preserve the land and used tradition to maintain the plants and the river bodies.
Mr Bologa commended the people of Teshie for their massive turnout towards the special environmental day.
Receiving the package on behalf of the chiefs and people of Teshie, Mr Sam Nii Bonney Quist, the Ledzekuku Constituency Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), was grateful to Fan Milk for the gesture.
He announced that plans were far advanced to construct a new library, a computer centre, among other facilities to enhance teaching and learning in the community.
For his part, Nii Adjei, the Shiketele of Teshie, on behalf of the chiefs and people of Teshie thanked Fan Milk for the donation and seized the opportunity to congratulate the company on its 50 years of successful business in Ghana.
He advised the people of Teshie, especially the youth to do everything possible to promote peace in the area.
