The Appiatse Support Fund on Wednesday 3rd March, 2022 received GH¢100,000 cheque from the National Lottery Authority (NLA)
The organisation made the donation following government’s clarion call for individuals and organisations to contribute toward the rebuilding of Appiatse, a community decimated by an explosion early this year.
Speaking on behalf of the delegation from NLA, the Director of Operations, Dr. George Gyamfi-Osew, before donating an amount of GH¢100,000 to the fund, said it is the NLA’s “contribution toward rebuilding the Appiatse Community”.
He disclosed that apart from the NLA’s main mandate, which is to deposit enough money into the Consolidated Fund for National Development, they also have the mandate to raise revenue to help the less privileged and vulnerable – like the people of Appiatse.
“What happened in Appiatse goes beyond less privileged or destitute in society; it looks like a war when there has been no war. So we are happy to support such a good cause – coming from our Good Cause Foundation,” he said.
Mr. Gyamfi-Osew called on other institutions to come forward and donate sufficiently to complement government’s efforts in rebuilding the community.
