Huawei Technologies Ghana has donated some groceries and confectionaries to the Cantonment Divisional Headquarters of the Ghana Police Service to support frontline police officers discharge their duties in times of the COVID-19 pandemic especially within the Cantonment enclave.
The Items worth over GHȼ50, 000 were given to police personnel who have shown much dedication and commitment in delivering their mandate towards the protection of both citizens and foreign residents in the country.
Speaking on the intent of the donation, Deputy Director for Public and Government Affairs at Huawei Ghana, Jenny Zhou mentioned that the donation forms part of Huawei’s commitment to give back to the society in which it operates. According to her, the Police Service has and continues to play a significant role in keeping the citizenry safe in times of the pandemic and beyond and the donation is a way to further support their efforts.
Receiving the items on behalf of the Ghana Police Service, Superintendent Simon Peter Akabati thanked Huawei for the kind gesture stating that, the Ghana Police Service is appreciative of the ICT giant’s effort and support and looks forward to more collaborations which will help the police serve the district better.
Since entering the Ghanaian market in 2001, Huawei has undertaken several CSR activities to support the socio-economic development of various communities in the country especially in the areas of ICT, Education and health.
In the heat of the pandemic early this year, Huawei contributed to Ghana’s fight by donating ICT equipment which helped in the observance of various COVID-19 safety protocols, provided remote talent training, and supported network coverage improvement with unserved and underserved communities.
Huawei will continue to create value for all Ghanaians through innovative technologies and social contribution towards the achievement of a fully connected intelligent Ghana and the world at large.
