FOUR INSTITUTIONS including the Kumasi Children's Home are proud beneficiaries of 800 insecticide-treated mosquito nets which have been donated free of charge.
The presentation was made possible following collaboration between Ashanti Foam Factory Company Limited Ghana and their customers who are scattered across the country.
The other three beneficiary institutions are Remar Home, Missionaries and Cheshire Home, all based in the Ashanti regional capital.
The presentation is in line with Ashanti Foam Factory Limited's grand mission of donating 100,000 treated mosquito nets to some selected institutions across the country this year.
Each of the four beneficiaries received 200 treated mosquito nets imported from Germany by the company.
Addressing the media whilst making the presentation, Francis Ampah, Administrative Manager, Ashfoam stated the presentation formed part of his outfit's corporate social responsibility.
Ashfoam, he noted had realized the devastating effects of malaria therefore it was donating the nets to help protect people from mosquito bites.
Mr. Ampah indicated the donation was to complement government's effort to prevent mosquito bites, notably among women and children and consequently avert malaria cases.
The Ashfoam administrative manager expressed hope that the presentation of the mosquito nets, which is the company's widow's mite, would contribute to help save the lives of many Ghanaians.
