A philanthropist, Frank Foley, has donated assorted food items beverages and clothing to three schools for special needs in the Hohoe and Kpando Municipalities of the Volta Region to put smiles on the faces of the pupils.
The items, worth thousands of Ghana cedis, include bags rice and maize, detergents, packs of T-Roll, drinks, packs bottled water, cartons of soap, nose masks, foot wears among others as well as cash donations.
This is the third time in a row that the three schools have benefitted from such gesture by Mr Foley through his Frank Foley Educational Support Fund with support from others in Hohoe.
Beneficiary schools include Volta School for the Intellectually disabled at Gbi Kledzo, Hohoe School for the Deaf/Blind and Community Inclusive special School at Kpando.
Mr. Foley who is a media practitioner said the donation forms part of his drive to assist vulnerable groups and the less privileged in the society. He pledged to embark on such gestures with support from individuals and benevolent organisations to enhance the lives of the underprivileged in society. He added that he will use the Fund to embark on developmental projects especially providing support to school children.
Receiving the donation on behalf of the beneficiary schools, the Headmaster of the Volta School for the Deaf/Blind, Dr. Michael Cudjo thanked the Frank Foley Educational Support Fund and other donors for the gesture. He urged Ghanaians to support schools for special needs pupils with resources to enhance teaching and learning.
