Vodafone Ghana has donated mobile phones, power banks, tablet and a cash of GH¢20,000 to the Ministry of Food and Agriculture, towards the celebration of the 2015 National Farmers Day.
A Ghana News Agency report said Gayheart Mensah, Director of External Affairs at Vodafone Ghana, explained that the support was in recognition of the hard work by the Ghanaian farmers.
He said, as a company that believed in the development of the agriculture sector, Vodafone has introduced a special product for farmers, dubbed the “Farmers Club”, to make their work more efficient.
Mr. Mensah said farmers belonging to the club were able to make free calls among themselves, as well as given competitive rates to call other networks.
“Additionally, members of the club are also given constant information about weather, farming techniques and prices,” he said, and urged farmers who are not members of the club to join and enjoy the numerous advantages.
Mr. Fifi Kwetey, Minister of Food and Agriculture, commended Vodafone Ghana for the donation and the immense support the company had been giving to the farmers, adding that the ministry would continue to collaborate with the telecom operator to introduce more products for the benefit of the Ghanaian farmers.
