Mr Addo further mentioned that CBG was aligned with the support fund’s vision of building a model community.

 “We identify with your pillars of building a green, and environmentally-friendly township that serves as a model for building townships in Ghana,” he said.

Receiving the donation, chairperson of the 5-member committee, Reverend Dr Joyce Aryee, expressed appreciation to CBG saying, “Thank you CBG for coming out to support the fund to rebuild Appiatse community and victims of the explosion. We call on mining firms, corporate Ghana and individuals to come on board and support”.

Rev. Dr Aryee indicated that the Appiatse Support Fund was mandated to coordinate the mobilisation of resources to reconstruct the community.
