Following the lockdown, the Asantehene set up a fund to help bring some relief to the vulnerable and needy who have been forced out of work and income due to the government's directive. So, through Otumfuo's efforts, some needy people have received food and other essential items to mitigate their plight.
Kasapreko, one of the leading beverage manufacturers in Africa, decided to support the Asantehene with the donation of drinks and hand sanitizers.
The items included Awake purified drinking water, assorted quantities of Royal soft drinks, 10/10 drinks, Veraldo drinks and cartons of Kasapreko Hand Sanitizers, were valued to be worth GHC40,000.
Speaking to the media while handing over the items to the Manhyia Palace, the Territory Department Officer for Kasapreko Company Limited, Nii Ahuateh Akwetey-Kodjoe explained that the donation was based on the company's corporate social responsibility policy which aims at touching lives of Ghanaians.
Nii Ahuateh Akwetey-Kodjoe said more humanitarian gestures of this kind are still ongoing to other institutions.
Receiving the items on behalf of Otumfuo, Baffour Yaw Boateng, Dominasehene expressed gratitude to the company for their kind gesture which according to him will help the poor in the lockdown communities.
The donation to Manyia comes after Kasapreko already made some big contributions towards Ghana's efforts to combat COVID-19.
It will be recalled that Kasapreko Company Limited was the first indigenous manufacturing company to produce hand sanitizers and sell at cheaper rates after excessive demand skyrocketed the prices of hand sanitizers in the market during the early days of the outbreak.
Before the donation to the Manhyia Palace, the Company had already presented quantities of KCL hand sanitizers to the Ministry of Information, 37 Military Hospital, Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra where these hand sanitizers are currently being used in these hospitals.
