ASA Agona-Kona Business Centre donates to Ashanti School for the Deaf

The Agona-Kona Business Centre of ASA Savings and Loans Limited has presented some relief items to the Ashanti School for the Deaf at Jamasi in the Ashanti Region.

The items, according to Agona Area Manager of ASA Alexander Opoku Ayitey, are intended to support care of the school – noting that the upkeep of the children should be a shared responsibility for society.

He said caring for underprivileged people in society should be a concern for all, particularly everyone in a position to help.

Against this background, he said ASA has made it a priority to give back to the community, especially, where it operates. This, he said, is because the company is not only interested in making a profit from its clients but also giving back to the communities.

Mr. Opoku Ayitey said: “This donation will also reduce the burden on the school and improve the wellbeing of underprivileged children here.”

The items donated include bags of rice, frying oil, golden drop oil, milk, milo, canned drinks, washing powder, canned fish, toiletries soap, tinned tomatoes, biscuits, brown sugar and detergents among others.

The items included bags of rice, bottled and sachet water, milo, sugar, cooking oil, drinks, biscuits, milk as well as toiletries among others.

The Branch Manager for Agona-Kona Business Centre of ASA, Samuel Otoo, noted that the gesture forms part of corporate social responsibilities for ASA.

He observed that while ASA has made it a part of their operation to support communities in which they operate, community members, especially women, should endeavour to transact business with them.

This, he noted, will contribute in positioning ASA to offer more help toward the social development and financial wellbeing of community members.

He entreated the women to benefit from credit facilities offered in support of their trade, and to always pay on time so others get the opportunity to benefit.

The school’s headmistress, Vida Aidoo, on receiving the items expressed gratitude for the gesture done by ASA Savings and Loans, saying the gesture will be emulated by other benevolent individuals and organisations.
