Nineteen institutions have benefitted from Norpalm Ghana Limited’s palm oil distribution at Ewusiejoe in the Ahanta West district of the Western Region.
The distribution of palm oil is an annual flagship programme to support these 13 senior high schools, two nursing training colleges, two special schools, one vocational school and a prison service for feeding. Also, it forms part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility to schools in the catchment area.
Nuredin Adams, Internal Audit Manager of Norpalm Ghana Limited explained that government cannot shoulder all the responsibilities, hence the need to support in this direction.
“Operating in a society, we deem it necessary to share our profit with them; two drums of palm oil for each institution will go a long way to assist in feeding the students,” he said, urging the beneficiary institutions to use it for its intended purpose.
Joyce Ama Polley, Assistant Headmistress of Sekondi School for the Deaf, thanked Norpalm Ghana Limited for the annual kind gesture. “This has more nutritional value and will boost the immune system of the schoolchildren in the midst of COVID-19.” She encouraged companies and philanthropists within the region to support special schools.
