A Deputy Chief of staff, Samuel Abu Jinapor has donated a grave-digging machine to the Damongo constituency to help ease the burden of using manpower to dig the graves during burial ceremonies.
Alongside the grave-digging machine was a portable generator to help power the machine as and when it is being put to use.
Mr. Jinapor also donated a quantity of ablution cans and praying mats to the Damongo central mosque.
He admonished the elders and opinion leaders to take good care of the machine to ensure that it lasts, adding that they have to cultivate a good culture of maintenance.
Speaking on Bole based Nkilgi Fm shortly after the donation, Mr Jinapor said a request was made to him to help the people of Damongo especially Moslems to acquire the machine.
He said several requests came from the community and which demand stressed the importance of having the grave-digging machine because of the rocky nature of the land anytime they lose a loved one and goes to dig the grave for burial.
The Chief Imam of the Damongo Central mosque thanked the Deputy Chief of Staff for the donation and prayed for success for him.
This is not the first time Mr. Jinapor has gone to the aid of the Damongo constituency as he helped tile the central mosque in Damongo and renovated the Larabanga mosque last year.
After the donation, Mr. Jinapor paid a courtesy call on the West Gonja hospital, visiting all the wards and interacting with patients on admission.
He later interacted with management of the hospital and assured them of donating a generating plant to help the hospital work 24 hours, 7 days since it serves many people in the district.
He has also assured management of furnishing the X- ray department with a new X-ray machine which will be delivered very soon, adding that a doctor’s bungalow which the management requested for, will be constructed for the hospital.
Mr Jinapor donated several items to the patients in the hospital including crates of eggs, toiletries, cartons of Milo and assorted drinks, soap and other items and wished them speedy recovery.
