On 13th February 2020, Sunon Asogli Power made a donation to the Mama Happy Life Enhancement Foundation (MAHLEF) at Bankuman, a suburb of Tema New town. Items donated include toiletries and food items worth GHC5,500 and a cash amount of GHC3,000 for the upkeep of the children. This formed part of Sunon Asogli Power’s Corporate Social Responsibilities.
Speaking at the donation, Chairman of Sunon Asogli Power, Mr. Yang Qun said this donation coincided with Chinese New Year and the Cash was a donation from some Volunteers in the company called the “red envelope”. And this donation was to touch the lives of the children. He encouraged the managers of the centre to do more for the children and commended them for giving the children hope and a better future.
Reverend Mrs Georgina Happy Crentsil, Executive director of the foundation, said setting up the foundation was her way of tackling the problems of teenage pregnancy and street children in the country from the root and she reached out to the community because the rate of teenage pregnancy was increasing at an alarming rate. She also noticed that most of the kids had never been to school. And now her foundation caters for almost 200 teenage mothers and babies and also has a food bank that serves lunch to all those who need it. She is also working alongside GES by giving the kids formal education to bridge the gap between them and their peers.
She further thanked Sunon Asogli for their kind donation and for always coming to her aid. She appealed to the general public and benevolent organisations to emulate the example of Sunon Asogli Power Ghana Ltd.
