Ghana: TDC Donates to School for the Deaf and Dumb

The board, management and staff of the Tema Development Corporation (TDC), last Saturday, donated a cheque for GH¢10,000 to the State School for the Deaf & Dumb at Adjei Kojo, near Ashaiman.

Also, the Tema landlord presented assorted items estimated to cost GH¢5,000 to the State School.

The items include 50 pieces of high density student mattresses, 1,000 copies of specially branded TDC exercise books, industrial-sized gas cooking stove and cylinder with two giant cooking pots, bowls, cups, dustbins and food items.

The presentation forms part of programmes lined up for the 60th Anniversary celebrations of the Corporation.

Presenting the items, the Managing Director of TDC, Mr. Joe Abbey, said the presentation was the Corporation's contribution towards the upkeep of the students in the school.

Mr. Abbey expressed the Corporation's profound appreciation towards the efforts the headmaster and staff of the school were putting in for the welfare of students in their care.

The Headmaster of the School, Mr. Michael Cudjoe, was grateful to the Corporation for remembering the school during the celebrations, and said the donation would go a long way to sustaining the students.

He appealed to companies, organisations, philanthropists and individuals to come to the aid of the school and help complete the boy's hostel, which is under construction, and had stalled for some time now, due to lack of funds.

Mr. Michael Cudjoe said the completion of the project would help the school accommodate the male students for full care.
