"The club on Monday morning received a cash donation of $10,000.00 from His Excellency, Mahamudu Bawumia in support of our quest to represent Ghana in the WAFU Zone B Women's Championship," wrote Hasaacas Ladies on Twitter.
"Everyone at Sekondi Hasaacas FC extends appreciation to Honorable Mahamudu Bawumia, second gentleman of the land for his generous extension to support us on this worthy cause. It's a big thank you from the Giants of the West!," added the club.

The donations are expected to boost the morale of the Ghanaian champions as they prepare for the maiden edition of the CAF Women Champions League.
The National Women's League winners and FA Cup champions will travel to Ivory Coast for the preliminary stages of the competition.
Hasaacas Ladies have been drawn in Group B of WAFU Zone B alongside Nigerian champions River Angels and AS Police of Niger.
The winner of the Zone travels to Egypt for the main tournament later this year.
The CAF Women Champions League was formed last year, but the outbreak of COVID-19 and travel restriction forced the competition to be moved to 2021.
It is Africa's version of the famous European Women's Champions League, which Barcelona beat Chelsea to win last season.
The Ghanaian giants won the Premier League title for the first time in eleven years despite a 1-1 draw against Liberty Professionals, following Kotoko's defeat to Bechem United.
