Bank of Africa supports the aged in Akropong



The Bank of Africa Ghana (BOA – Ghana) has donated 50 bags of cement to the Akropong Christ Presbyterian Church towards the completion of the church’s Aged Centre.
The Aged Centre, which is being propounded by the Christ Presbyterian Church, would include a sick bay, clinic, leisure centre and other resources, and is expected to be completed by the close of the year.
The Head of Marketing and Communications, Kofi Fumey, presenting the items on behalf of Bank of Africa, said the bank was interested in supporting the welfare of the aged and was glad the church was providing a resource centre which would allow them to congregate.
He said this was the first time a community was implementing such an initiative and hoped that it would trigger a ripple effect in other communities, since “we will all grow old one day.”
He added that there was the need to institute support systems to provide a haven for the aged and that the bank would support such initiatives.
Rev.  M.P. Agyepong , the 2nd Minister of the Akropong Christ  Presby Church, receiving the items on behalf of the  District Minister, said “we must live for each other” and was glad for the support from Bank of Africa.
He said the gesture would enable the church to complete the Aged Centre in Akropong.
Akuapem area has the highest number of population of the aged and the district Presbyterian Church alone has about 200 bedridden aged and about 180 moveable aged worshiping with the Akropong Christ Presbyterian Church.
