The hardworking National Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Sammi Awuku today, Wednesday April 1, 2020 joined managers of the COVID-19 Private Sector Fund as they embarked on the Feed a Kayayei Project.
The project is a special one organized by the COVID-19 Private Sector Fund Managers and aimed at feeding some 8,000 head potters, popularly known in the local parlance as Kayayei in Accra and Kumasi.
The move is part of the group’s efforts to help alleviate the plight of the less privileged in the midst of the lockdown announced by government, following the outbreak of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Senyo Hosi, a trustee of the fund in a statement seen by BestNewsGH.com said “The project aims to provide a meal a day to head-porters at various locations in areas impacted by the directive to restrict movements. The feeding arrangements are being organized in conjunction with the leaders of various head-porter groups. The meals will be provided by existing caterers of the Ghana School Feeding Programme.’’
BestNewsGH.com reports the iconic and charismatic NPP National Organiser who is also the Board Chairman of the Youth Employment Agency as expressing hope that the country will overcome the pandemic.
According to Mr. Awuku, the exercise afforded them the opportunity to interact with and educate the head potters on the pandemic and the measures they can take to protect themselves and their loved ones.
