The Chief Executive Officer of Engineers & Planners Ltd, Mr. Ibrahim Mahama, has donated food items to visually impaired workers who have gone on retirement.
The donation was done on behalf of Mr. Ibrahim Mahama by his aide, Rafik Mahama.
The board chairman of the Ghana Federation of Disability Organisations (GFDO), Mr. Yaw Ofori Debrah, received the items on behalf of the federation.
The items included 100 bags of rice, 720 bottles of cooking oil, 720 cans of mackerel and 720 cans of tomato paste.
This is to support the visually impaired whose movement and livelihood have been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic because of their inability to move around because of the social distance and other restrictions imposed by the government.
Mr. Ibrahim Mahama also made a second donation to St. James Catholic Church-Osu. He donated 50 bags of rice, 360 cans of Mackerel, 360 cans of tomato paste and 360 bottles of cooking oil. This is to help the community through the church. The food items will be distributed to individual homes by the church. This is done to avoid people crowding at one place in order to receive food items.
This is part of series of donations that have been done Mr Mahama since Ghana recorded a COVID-19 case in March. In April, similar donations were made across Muslim and Christian communities in the country during which food items were distributed to 10,000 households across the affected areas.
Mr Ibrahim Mahama, a younger brother of former president John Dramani Mahama, is the founder of Engineers and Planners, the largest indigenous-owned mining company in West Africa, which now employs over 3000 Ghanaians.
He also invested in Asutsuare Poultry Farms, which was started in 2004 and produces 150,000 eggs and 10,000 live broilers a day.
Mr Mahama is also an investor at Dzata Cement company, a fully Ghanaian-owned cement processing factory located in Tema
