Blaynet Services Limited, a shipping and logistics company based in Tema has supported Ghana’s preparation in the upcoming International Handball Federation (IHF) Africa Zone 3 Challenge with a presentation of items worth Gh¢4,600.
The items include T-shirts, toiletries and an unspecified cash component meant to motivate the young Golden Hands at the competition reserved for male and female U-18 players.
Ghana will present male and female teams in the competition that got underway yesterday in the capital of Togo, Lome with high expectations.
The week-long tourney will see Ghana battle some of the tough handball nations, especially Togo that has a long standing rivalry with the Golden Hands as far as handball is concerned.
Presenting the items, Mr. Nicholas Broni, General Manager of Blaynet said the gesture forms part of the company’s responsibility to support lesser-known sports.
“We have extended similar support to taekwondo in the past and we see this occasion as another decent platform to extend out tentacles as we hope to create partnerships with the least financed disciplines.”
Mr. Saka Acquaye, a Deputy Director of Sports at the National Sports Authority (NSA) thanked the company for the support and advised the players to work hard to win the tournament as a way of also appreciating the effort of the company.
