Sametro Group of Companies, made up of Space FM and Sametro Links has donated some food items at a cost of Ghc20,000, to needy widows in the Tarkwa Nsuem and Prestea Huni – Valley Municipalities of the Western Region.
The first 200 widows from over 20 communities in two municipalities were asked to register at the company’s offices, after which due diligence were taken to verify whether the registered women were needy widows or not.
The widows received full bags of rice, oil, tomatoes, canned foods and other stuff just to make their yuletide a memorable one.
At the presentation on Friday, December 20, 2019, the General Manager of Sametro Company Limited John Armstrong Asabil Etroo said, the birth of Jesus Christ is to celebrate and more importantly with the needy. So the company thought it wise to put smiles on the faces of the widows this season.
He stated that “as we are approaching the Christmas festivities, we have planned to celebrate with the needy widows just for them to also feel loved”.
Mr Etroo said, the annual gesture is the company’s corporate social responsibility and that “we are honouring it through giving to the needy widows. Those who are not in good financial standing”
This year’s donation to the 200 widows is an increment from last year’s, where hundred got food items.
Speaking to the media, the beneficiaries thanked the company for thinking about them this season.
