Awake Purified Drinking Water, a subsidiary company of Kasapreko Company Limited, on Wednesday presented a cheque for GH¢36,000 and 50 cartons of its product to the National Cardiothoracic Centre at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.
It also formed part of the company’s pledge to donate a portion of its profit on sale of the product to the centre.
The Managing Director of Kasapreko Company Limited, Mr. Richard Adjei, said the gesture formed part of its corporate social responsibility to society.
He commended the centre for treating heart diseases, and pledged that the company would continue to support to the centre to deliver on its mandate.
The Director of Carbonated Soft Drinks of the company, Mrs. Eunice Adjei Bonsu, urged Ghanaians to patronise Awake Purified Water to ensure their health.
The Marketing Manager of the brand, Mr. IK. Marvin Mends, said the product was launched six months ago with the aim of supporting the cardio centre.
Director of National Cardiothoracic Centre, Dr. Lawrance Sereboe, commended the company for the gesture, and appealed to individuals and organisations to assist the centre.
“It is very difficult to get committed companies like Awake Water these days, that is why they must be commended,” he said and assured that the donation would be used to improve the centre.
