Rebecca Akufo-Addo donates GHC50,000 to Appiatse fund

The First Lady had already made an earlier donation of some relief items to the victims of Appiatse when the incident first occurred

The First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo on Thursday donated GHC50,000 to the Appiatse Support Fund for the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the Appiatse community in the Western Region.
She said she has already made an earlier donation of some relief items sent out to the victims of Appiatse when the incident first occurred.

The First Lady said the incident is a huge tragedy that has troubled all Ghanaians and as a senior citizen of Ghana and a mother full of emphathy for her children, is it only right that she also adds her contribution to help Appiatse.
The First Lady also encouraged all Ghanaians to do what they can to help restore the livelihoods of the people of Appiatse.
“We all have to do our bit to help restore their homes and their lives and as they say Kitua biaa nsua.”
The chairperson of the Fund, Rev Dr Joyce Aryee on behalf of the committee expressed her profound gratitude to the First Lady for her gesture to the reconstruction of the Appiatse community.
Aryee said the First Lady has proven that she is indeed a mother of the nation, adding that she knows her contribution will go beyond material things considering her soft spot for women and children.
