Leading online sports betting provider, Betway, has presented a cheque of GHC 150,000 to the government’s COVID-19 Trust Fund to help lessen the effect of the spread of COVID-19 in Ghana.
Betway – which operates in Ghana as Sports Betting Group Ghana Limited – donated the sum when its Director and Board Secretary, Dr. Kweku Ainuson led a team from the organisation to the Ministry of Information on Thursday 16th April, 2020.
Minister Of Energy, John Peter Amewu, received the cheque on behalf of the Republic Of Ghana in the presence of Magnus Rex Danquah Jnr. (Country Manager – Operations) and Kwabena Oppong-Nkrumah (Country Manager – Marketing).
Speaking to the media after the handover, Dr. Kweku Ainuson, who led the Betway Team said, “As the country continues to be in lockdown, we are all experiencing the full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are committing GHC 150,000.00 to help fight COVID-19 as well as its related challenges”.
“The funds will support the government’s food relief efforts and other supplies that may be needed to eradicate the virus.”
Betway, in its bid to provide for people in the local communities, has also made a donation to a local charity to provide food and water to communities across the country.
The sports betting company through its social media platforms continues to educate its players and the general public on social distancing and maintaining personal hygiene in our communities.
