Okudzeto Launches First Ever Furniture & Footwear Bank In Ghana
The Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency, Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa launches first ever furniture and footwear bank in Ghana.
The good news hitting North Tongu Constituency and the entire country is that, the MP for the area has instituted a classic footwear bank in the constituency.
Addressing needs of constituents of North Tongu, it is undeniable fact that, the MP is up and doing for his people. He has intervened with several initiatives to better develop the the constituency.
Information available to myafroghana.com have it that the initiative is to aid support for schools whenever their desk are damaged.
The footwear bank will also help provide shoes for needy students within the constituency.
The bank is therefore opened to receive support from NGOs in order to stock it with more footwear and furnitures.
After the launch of this initiative, the MP has taken to his Facebook page to announce the good news to Ghanaians.
Below is the statement by the member of parliament for the North Tongu Constituency.
Had a successful launch of Ghana’s first Furniture and Footwear Bank [FFB] in my beloved constituency, earlier today.
It is refreshing to note that this has been largely a North Tongu local content driven initiative from the metal fabrication, furniture production and footwear supplies. I am enormously proud of Aveyime- based Amuga Metal Works, Borlor Shoes of Mepe and Dodzi Carpentry in Battor.
Of course, I am absolutely proud of our team of sharp, dedicated volunteers who mobilized footwear donations from the national capital, amounting to some 30% of total available shoes for free distribution. We are eternally indebted to all donors.
I am happy to acknowledge Mr. Tonyi Senayah of Horseman Shoes who reached out on his own volition and pledged a generous partnership with our footwear component moving into the near future.
It is deeply humbling to establish that our model allows for North Tongu to now have a constant store of thousands of furniture and footwear for free distribution to those who need them all-year-round. The “no-furniture-syndrome” and the unacceptable sight of vulnerable kids walking barefooted to school would now be a phenomenon of the past.
Grateful to my hardworking team and all you well-wishers for the many accomplishments in 2021; with God on our side, 2022 shall be even more impactful.
Happy new year in advance, folks.
