The Queen Mother of Asante community in Italy, Nana Amonu Gyamfua Susubribipa, has donated assorted items valued at GH¢85,000.00, to widows and needy, at Manso-Atwere in the Amansie-West District of the Ashanti Region.
About 500 widows and 300 orphans from that community received items include bag of rice, soft drinks, second clothing as well as pairs of shoes.
Speaking at a ceremony to present the gifts, Nana Amonu Gyamfua Susubribipaho said the gesture was borne out of her passion to help the needy in society and called on natives in the diaspora to assist in the development to the town.
A businessman and a native, Bismark Okrah, who chaired the function commended Nana Amonu for demonstrating such love and compassion for the needy in the society.
He used the occasion to call on Otumfuo Osei Tutu ll, the Asantehene, to help install a substantive chief in the town, which had been without an overlord the past 33 years – a situation which had stalled development.
Madam Akua Addai, a beneficiary on behalf of the others, thanked Nana Amonu for the kind gesture and wished her well in all her endeavours.
