''I have no ill intentions towards anyone,'' he added.

Donation to 70-year-old amputee

Though the prevailing pandemic has derailed many planned activities, Lance Corporal Simon Agbeko has proven to be unstoppable.

His quest to uplift the underserved in communities urges him.

''I provided a walking aide and foodstuff to a 70-year-old woman at Awoshie in Accra. The woman couldn't walk and needed help badly; I decided to step in to assist her with my own money,'' Lance Corporal Simon Agbeko told YEN.com.gh.

Future projects

The Ghanaian police officer disclosed that he would continue to bring exposure to the stories of the deprived by reaching out and donating to them.

''I will be donating to thank God for his goodness in my life and the recent award I received. I started this three years ago, and finally, people are beginning to recognise it. I don't do it for the awards, but I'm happy I have acknowledgement,'' he said.
