Ghana: Ghacem cement to regions in need of development
Published: 13 December 2013


Ghacem has donated 16,000 bags of cement to schools and hospitals which were drawn from the Upper East, Upper West, Northern, Ashanti and Brong Ahafo regions. The list of beneficiaries includes about 137 health and educational institutions in deprived communities in northern Ghana.

The Managing Director of Ghacem, Mr Morten Gade, in a keynote address, said it was the objective of the Ghacem Cement Foundation to support self-help initiatives to speed up the development of the country. The donation is the last of two carried out by the foundation this year.

The Western, Central, Greater Accra, Eastern and Volta regions form the southern sector of the country and they received the first donation of free cement under the Ghacem Cement Foundation as an annual benevolence from Ghacem.
