By gna

A philanthropist and financier of the Association of Sports for the Disabled, Mr Daniel Arhin, on Tuesday donated two tricycles worth 6,000 Euros to the Association.

The donation is to aid the Association in training members of the national disabled team for various international assignments.

Mr Arhin said he was motivated by the performance of the members of the national disabled team at various international competitions.

He noted that he is looking forward to an improved performance at the impending Paralympic Games to be staged in Beijing, China next September.

Mr. George B. Awuakye, Chief Sports Development Officer (CSDO) of the National Sports Council (NSC) expressed appreciation to the donor and urged him not to relent in his efforts and assistance towards the development of sports in the country.

The Chief Development Officer said the Council needs the support of philanthropists and the corporate world to help develop and promote sports in the country, adding that “Mr Arhin deserves commendation from all.”

Mr Cornelius Adjaa Cofie, Chairman of the Association of Sports for the Disabled gave the assurance that his outfit will make judicious use of the equipment.

He said members of the Disabled Sports have the required potential to excel at the international level hence the need for adequate support from individuals and the corporate world.

Mr Adjaa Cofie who described the equipment as one of the latest innovations in disabled sports competitions, said “Ghana will now be in a better position to compete with other advanced countries on the international scene”.

He appealed to individuals and organizations to follow the footsteps of Mr Arhin and support the disabled to realize their potential in all spheres of life
