Jonmoore International, a company tasked to remove the debris of the Allied Air Boeing 727-200 cargo aircraft which crash-landed near the El Wak Stadium on the 2nd of June 2012, has donated a cash amount of GHÂÂ¢5,000 to victims of the unfortunate incident.
The said donation according to the company would not only assist the families of the victims, but would also alleviate their sufferings.
Making the presentation at the headquarters of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) in Accra, the Managing Director of Jonmoore International, Mr. Hilton Mitchell, stressed that the donation was their own way of sustaining the families of the victims, saying, "this is not a corporate social responsibility, but an emotional support of the management to back families of the victims."
He added that the incident was a sad event for all Ghanaians, and not just the families of the victims.
Receiving the donation on behalf of the victims and the government, the Director General of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Air Commodore Kwame Mamphey (Rtd), commended Jonmoore International for removing the debris in good time and with high professionalism.
He stated: "A company was tasked to remove the wreckage from where it was, that is the El Wak Stadium, and Jonmoore International was awarded the contract; they finished the removal of the ravage in good time and professionally. Months later, they called us that they would want to make some donation to the victims, and that is why they are here.
"They have donated from what they received as payment of the contract an amount of GHÂÂ¢5,000, so we have received it on behalf of the Ministry of Transportation, we would deliver it to the Ministry, and at the appropriate time, and the Ministry will deliver it to the victims," he noted.
