Highly reputed Ghanaian company, Orkman Ghana limited has donated some relief items worth tens of thousands of Ghana cedis to select orphanages in Kasoa and Nsawam.
The donation exercise which took place on Thursday, April 10 saw the donation of bags of rice, veronica buckets, drinks, liquid soaps and hand sanitizers to Village Of Hope Orphanage in Gomoa Fetteh, Countryside Children’s Home in Bawjiase and Eye of the Lord Orphanage in Nsawam.
Speaking in an exclusive interview at the donation, the General Manager of Orkman Ghana Limited, Mr Emmanuel Anuebero Kumah thanked the CEO of Orkman Ghana Limited for allowing them to support society again as they’ve always done in previous years.
‘’It’s all from the goodwill of our leader who believes in helping society. We are grateful to him for these kind gestures. He believes in helping the community to grow so we can all grow together.’’ He said.
Speaking about why they chose those 3 orphanages for the donation, Mr Kumah indicated that it was as a result of balloting that they had discovered those 3 orphanages as the most vulnerable within the areas of focus hence the need to support them in such trying times of COVID-19.
He further called on all other companies and corporate bodies to come together to contribute their quota to help their communities as we battle with COVID-19.
‘’I pray that other companies will not just focus on the profit they’ll get but rather focus on the lives of their customers. If the people in the community are not happy, there’s no way they can come and do business with you. So there’s a need for companies to at all times go round the community to find out how they can support their society to reduce the burden on the government.’’ Mr Kumah said.
In his final words, Mr Kumah touched on the effect the COVID-19 has had on their business and why their loyal customers need to adhere to the guidelines and orders from the government in fighting the virus.
‘’Frankly, we have had to close down our fuel business, home appliances and mattresses business as well due to the coronavirus and it’s affecting our revenue generation. However, I want to tell our customers that it is because of them that we exist. We feel their plight in moments like this. We want to plead with them to adhere to the measures put in place by the government. They should wash their hands always and sanitize their hands. Hopefully, all these will be over soon’’ he concluded.
Some other people present at the donations include Mr Jonah Nana Opoku Boateng, the Operations Manager of Orkman Ghana Limited and other workers from Orkman Ghana Limited.

Dr. Sledge Duodu Donates Food Packages To Touch The Lives Of 15,000 Community Members And Police During Coronavirus Lockdown
Dr. Sledge Duodu, founder and CEO of Goldridge Ghana Limited, is donating 5,000 ‘Touching Lives’ family food packages that will benefit more than 15,000 members of the community as the COVID-19 crisis impacts everyday lives. Each package includes rice, cooking oil, sardines and spaghetti, and hand sanitizer.
They are being donated to both police and army task forces in Accra who are making sure citizens stay at home and follow the measures put in place by the Government to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 Pandemic, and to some of the poorest communities to help the capital’s most vulnerable.
“We all need food, whether we are one of those on the front line putting our own lives at risk to protect others, or amongst society’s less privileged who need a hand to make sure families are able to eat during this lockdown period,” comments Dr. Sledge Duodu. “We will give each security service employee a package to take to their family, and I will go to the homes of vulnerable people to deliver their Touching Lives package myself.”
A husband and father of four children, Dr. Sledge Duodu is from Kibi Asikame and is a seasoned entrepreneur who has the work of Ghanaian communities at his heart. Through Goldridge, a gold trading and export company, he is looking to reshape the Ghanaian small-scale gold mining sector by supporting miners to improve their working conditions and livelihoods through responsible social and environmental mining practices.
Dr. Sledge and his team at Goldridge will distribute the ‘Touching Lives’ packages throughout this week, reaching one area of Accra every day and one family at a time.
