Kushea (C/R), Jan. 09, GNA – Madam Charlotte Adwoa Antwi, Central Region Women’s Organizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has donated assorted items to widows and the needy in the Assin-North District.


The about 300 beneficiaries were presented with pieces of cloths, rice, and cooking oil.


Madam Antwi said her benevolence was born out of the biblical direction to support the weak and the underprivileged in society to live dignified lives.


She said: “He who puts smiles on the faces of widows, the needy and the less privileged, do what is needful and pleasing to the Lord Almighty.”


The handout was also to thank the people of Assin-North for their unflinching support for the NPP as well as her political career development.


She asked them to accept her widow’s might and pray for her to retain her position as the Regional Women’s Organizer to enable her to do more for others.


She took the opportunity to advise parents to take advantage of various government policy interventions, particularly the free Senior High School education policy, and enroll their children in school.


Parents must make meaningful contributions to the education of their children with the needed care and materials to enable them to achieve their aspirations.


This she indicated will be a positive step to reducing cases of teen pregnancy among the youth, and promoting their development.


The beneficiaries were grateful to the Central Regional Women’s Organizer and commended her highly of her resolve to support the course of women empowerment in the area to contribute meaningfully to national development.


Mr Charles Ohene Andoh, the District Chief Executive who accompanied Madam Antwi, expressed gratitude to her for putting smiles on the faces of the widows and the needy.


He reaffirmed the government’s commitment to extend development to cover all communities in the district and urged them to support the government to deliver on its mandate.
