Melcom Group of Companies through its philanthropic arm branded as Melcom Care Foundation has commissioned and handed over 13 washroom facilities to three basic schools within Ashaiman and Tema in the Greater Region.

Three of the toilet facilities with poly tanks were installed at Ashaiman Presbyterian primary and Junior High School. Five were handed over to Tema Community 5 Number 1 Basic School and another five to Tema-Kotobabi TMA School, all are mechanized and the group added some toiletries to each School.

Godwin Avenorgbo, the Director of Communications of Melcom Group of Companies, in his remarks at the handing over ceremony, said the facilities are to help improve personal hygiene and sanitation in various schools in the selected Districts and Regions.

According to him, the toilet facilities were manufactured in China, imported to Ghana for assembling here before distributing them to beneficiary schools instead of “building hard concrete structures with cement blocks”.

“These were ready for commission but due to COVID-19 restrictions we were unable to handover them to the schools until today”, he added.

….” now that the COVID-19 restrictions are eased, here we are to commission…, “it’s Tema today, next week we are doing Accra, Volta Region, Eastern and others. So, it’s a Melcom Care Foundation”.

The Headmistress of Tema Community 5 Number 1 Basic School, Joana P. Mensah was thankful to Melcom and promised to keep the facility clean at all times.
