SUNDA Int. & TWYFORD Ceramics donate to gas explosion victims
Sunda International Ghana Ltd., a Chinese company
operating in Ghana, has donated cash and relief
items totalling forty thousand Ghana cedis
(GHc40,000) to victims of Saturday night’s atomic
junction gas explosion at the 37 military Hospital
The Sunda international donation comes in
immediate response to appeals made to corporate
Ghana by Vice president Mahamudu Bawumia on Sunday
morning to assist surviving victims, most of whom
are currently on admission at the 37 military
The devastating explosion, the cause of which is
not yet known, claimed seven (7) lives including a
cameraman of NET2 TV and severely injured 132
Managing director of SUNDA International, Mr.
Isaac Hu explained that SUNDA’s gesture which is
in partnership with its sister company TWYFORD,
who have invested tens of millions in a ceramic
factory at Aboadze, Shama district, Western
region, is a direct response to appeals from the
vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to corporate
bodies for assistance, but also added that, it
also forms part of the company’s corporate social
responsibility policy to assist needy communities
and victims of disasters in the country.
”I hope the whole country will join together to
help the affected families go through this
tragedy. In the future, I also hope the whole
country will work together to prevent this
disaster from happening again,” Mr. Hu added.
The donation, made at the 37 military hospital
was received by Colonel MA Yeboah-Agyepong on
behalf of the hospital. “We’ll like to thank SUNDA
and TWYFORD for this kind gesture.
The materials you brought are actually the
materials we need because many have severe burns
and need cleaning materials. So far we are doing
well and we’ll still be very happy to have more
donations coming in,” he said.
He praised SUNDA for their generous donation to
the hospital in aid of the gas explosion victims
and appealed to other business organisations
operating in Ghana to emulate the good corporate
social responsibility practices of SUNDA by coming
forward to make donations to the hospital since it
will go a long way to save lives.
