Chief of Fise Muslim Community in Ga West, Alhaji Bukari Kabore, gave Akropong School for the Blind GH¢2,000 cash and GH¢15,000 worth of 10 bags of rice, 10 bags of black-eyed beans, 10 bags of gari, five gallons of oil, 40 cartons of drinking water and toiletries.

Chief Kabore, who is Chairman for Ga West and Ga North Council for Zongo chiefs, made the gift in celebration of the 10th anniversary of his enskinment.

Chief Kabore said it was very important for individuals to remember the needy and to reach out to them. He appealed for broad support from the public, noting that no amount was too small and that if we all came together to support schools and institutions in need of assistance, Ghana would develop at a faster rate.

Chief Kabore also admonished the visually impaired students, telling them they could accomplish anything they wanted in life with patience and determination. He cautioned them to not sell themselves short, pointing out that they were not disabled, only differently able.

Headmistress of Akropong School for the Blind Ms. Makela Narh received the items on behalf of the school and thanked Chief Alhaji Kabore for the kind gesture.
