The Ghana National Scholarship Beneficiaries Association (GNASBA) has donated sanitation equipment and kits in support of efforts at keeping Kumasi, the nation’s second largest city clean.
The items included 100 dustbins to be placed at vantage points and large quantity of hand gloves.
It comes barely 24 hours to the second National Sanitation Day, spearheaded by the Local Government and rural Development Ministry to be held in Kumasi.
Mr Baffour Akwasi Oppong, GNASBA National Chairman, handing over the items, alongside 1,000 packs of Fan Dango products to the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Kofi Boakye, in a ceremony, said it was the contribution of members to prevent littering.
He said he was confident that the items would also help to make the day, set aside to highlight environmental sanitation, a huge success.
The members had earlier made a similar donation to the national capital, Accra.
DCOP Boakye thanked the association for the gesture and encouraged others to do the same.
He appealed to the people to actively participate in the clean-up exercise to rid the city of filth.
He said it is in the interest of everybody to maintain clean and healthy surroundings to prevent disease. GNA
