Karpowership Ghana Company Limited has embarked on a clean-up exercise with residents of the Tema New Town Community to keep the environment clean.
The activity organised by the Local Assembly together with Karpowership was to create awareness on waste management and the importance of maintaining a clean environment.
The exercise began from the Naval Base through the ceremonial road to the Tema New Town main station and then to the Tema Manhean Community Health Centre.
Speaking during the exercise, Corporate Communications Specialist of Karpowership, Ms Sandra Amarquaye said Karpowership was committed to promoting good environmental practices.
“This is not the first time we have embarked on a clean-up exercise with the Community. As has always been our tradition, Karpowership continues to support the communities in which it operates in. We are hopeful that this exercise becomes a daily routine to ensure a clean, safe and a healthy environment for us all,” she said.
The company expects the exercise will be sustained and urge the youth to continue in their effort towards ensuring optimum sanitation practices in the community.
The senior health doctor at the Manhean Community Health Centre, Ama Darko expressed gratitude to Karpowership for its continuous support to the community.
“We are really grateful for coming out in your numbers to support this exercise. Since you began operations, the community health centre has benefitted from the social responsibility projects you undertake. We hope the relationship we have built together will linger on,” She said.
The Assembly man of Sea Light Electoral area, Mr. Joseph Ofori, also said the activity was important as the rainy season was yet to begin.
“The rains will start setting in soon and there is a need to ensure a clean environment,” he said.
He expressed gratitude to Karpowership for its commitment to the advancement of the community.
As part of Karpowership’s corporate social responsibility projects, the company did not only supports the clean-up exercises, but also provided a modern ICT lab for the Manhean Anglican School, water tanks to the fishmongers and the community schools, and provided bursary to over 100 students in the Manhean community, amongst other social intervention projects.
