Maxam Ghana Limited supports children in two institutions

Maxam Ghana Limited, a mining support service company in Ghana, extended its benevolence to two institutions during the Christmas Season.

The institutions are the Child Protection Center, Ashaiman, and Angel of Hope Orphanage in Tarkwa, Western Region as the children prepared to celebrate this Christmas.

Patrick Lombardia, the Managing Director of Maxam led his team to present the items, which were assorted food items, detergents and Maxam-branded souvenirs, to 56 beneficiaries of the Child Protection Center, Ashaiman.

While brushing aside the cost of the items, Patrick Lombardia said what matters most to the company, aside making profit, is its ability to give back to the vulnerable and under-privileged children in society.

Mr Lombardia commended attendants and caretakers of the children at the Child Protection Center, Ashaiman, for working hard to protect the children from bad peers.

Mr Lombardia encouraged the caretakers to continue nurturing the children, on whose shoulders the future of the country rests.

Reverend Father Peter Saviour, who is the Director of the Child Protection Center, thanked Maxam Ghana Limited for the gesture, saying the children would be glad as they also enjoy this year's Christmas.

Doing the Presentation to the Angel of Hope Orphanage in Tarkwa, Mr. Godfred Osei Mensah, HSEQS Manager for Maxam West Africa said the donation formed part of the company's policy to institutions and communities within its area of operations to help in their developmental efforts.

The caretaker of the orphanage Mrs. Yaa Frimpomaah Arhin, thanked the company for the gesture and appealed for more assistance to enhance the operations of the orphanage.
