Personal Statement

Ashaiman Area Manager of ASA Savings and Loans, Mr. Eugene Owusu Biney explained that the company depended on the community for its success, which was why the company considered it a privilege to support the community through generous CSR programming. With the Christma holidays looming large, Mr. Biney said ASA Savings and Loans believed that children of lesser privilege deserved to enjoy the festive moments as well.

“Schools with physically challenged pupils need greater support from us and the private sector at large.”

Mr. Ebenezer Sarpong, Ashaiman Branch Manager for ASA Savings and Loans Limited, remarked that it had always been the priority of the company to address the needs of its stakeholders through CSR initiatives that support developmental transformation in education, health and other community-related areas. Examples include ASA’s scholarship scheme and educational support program that has been extended to support communities in the company’s operational areas.

Acknowledgement & Gratitude

Specialist Surgeon and Medical Superintendent at Achimota Hospital, Dr. David Kwabena Okoh, described the assistance provided by JL Properties as an answered prayer. Dr. Okoh underlined the importance of the serenity of the environment to the patient recovery process. He noted that refurbishment and equipment would improve patient experience at the hospital. “When it comes to health, you also need the serenity of the environment to be good, it helps in the recovery.

“So health[care and patient recovery] is not just about giving injections. That total sense of calmness is also very important. So with what they’ve done [i.e. JL Properties], I believe that when patients walk in, when they lie on the bed, they’re going to be calm, they’re going to have that serene, nice environment, and it is going to improve their recuperation and healing process,” Dr. Okoh explained.

Headmaster of Tetteh Ocloo State School for the Deaf Mr Isaac Arthur expressed to ASA Savings and Loans for the immense support and appealed to other organizations for support.
