Maxam Ghana Limited, a Mining Support Service company in Ghana, extended its benevolence to two institutions during the Christmas Season. The institutions are, Child Protection Center, Ashaiman, and Angel of Hope Orphanage in Tarkwa, Western Region as the children prepare to celebrate this Christmas.
Patrick Lombardia, the Managing Director of Maxam, led his team to present the items, which were assorted food items, detergents and Maxam-branded souvenirs, to 56 beneficiaries of the Child Protection Center, Ashaiman.
The cost of the items, to Patrick Lombardia, did not matter, saying that what matters most to the company, aside making profit, is its ability to give back to the vulnerable and under-privileged children in society.
To begin with its charity in the Greater Accra Region, Maxam Ghana Limited visited the Child Protection Center in Ashaiman and made a presentation.
Mr Lombardia expressed commendations to the attendants and caretakers of the children, for working hard to protect the children from bad peers.
Mr Lombardia encouraged the caretakers to continue nurturing the children, on whose shoulders the future of the country rests.
In conclusion, he said Maxam Ghana Limited will embark on a project that will support the Center in the future.
Reverend Father Peter Saviour, who is the Director of the Child Protection Center, thanked Maxam Ghana Limited for their gesture, saying the children will be glad as they also enjoy this year’s Christmas.
He briefly took some time to explain the operations at the Center, mentioning the Social, Education, Psychology, Moral and Security as the departments that, together, keep the place running in the development of the children.
The Child Protection Center, he said, will happily welcome similar gestures from the general public.
Doing the presentation to the Angel of Hope Orphanage in Tarkwa, Mr. Godfred Osei Mensah, HSEQS Manager for Maxam West Africa said the donation formed part of the company’s policy to institutions and communities within its area of operations to help in their developmental efforts.
The caretaker of the orphanage Mrs. Yaa Frimpomaah Arhin, thanked the company for the gesture and appealed for more assistance to enhance the operation of the orphanage.
