Head of Fise Muslim community donates to Akropong School for the Blind

As part of activities to mark the 10th anniversary of his enskinment, the chief of the Fise Muslim community in the Ga West municipality of Accra, Alhaji Bukari Kabore has donated items worth GH¢15,000.00 and cash of GH¢2,000.00 to the Akropong School for the Blind in the Eastern Region.

The items included 10 bags of rice, 10 bags of beans, 10 bags of gari, five gallons of oil, 40 cartons of water and toiletries.

Presenting the items, Chief Kabore stated that it was very important for individuals to remember the needy and help complement government’s efforts to develop the nation.

“The government cannot do it all alone, so I am humbly calling on all well-meaning Ghanaians to come on board and support the needy. No amount is too small, if we all come together and support schools and institutions that need help, the country will develop at a faster rate,” he advised.

He commended teachers and the heads of the school for instilling discipline in the pupils and training them well to the extent that they do not find any difficulty in studying or moving around the compound.

Chief Kabore who is the Chairman for Ga West and Ga North Council for Zongo chiefs advised the pupils to remain studious, saying, “Disability is not inability.”

He said, “You can accomplish whatever you want to achieve in life with patience and determination so do not look down on yourselves, you are not disabled, you are rather differently able.”

The headmistress of the school, Madam Makela Narh, receiving the items on behalf of the school expressed gratitude to Chief Alhaji Kabore for the kind gesture and called on other philanthropists to emulate him.

She said the donation was timely as the school was in dire need of foodstuffs.
