Herrada Africa Group donates to women in parts of Ghana
The Herrada Africa Group, in partnership with Eblah Foundation has donated an undisclosed amount of money to some needy women across the country as an economic intervention to sustain them through the hard times.
According to Ms Blessed Agyemang, founder of Herrada Africa Group, the cash donation through mobile money transfers was to support needy women in Ghana whose small scale enterprises and petty businesses had been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The initiative dubbed “Help her Quarantine”, was an online transaction which sent cash relief to some families and single mothers during the partial lockdown to restrict movements in some selected regions.
Ms Agyemang indicated that it was important to extend helping hand to those women affected by the restrictions on movement as they only relied on the little they gained from their daily work activities and on the streets.
“This online cash donation would help some of these women both far and near to support their families since they couldn’t get any means to provide food and other necessities for their children,” she said.
They were from major cities in the country mostly in Accra and some parts of Kumasi, Sunyani, Tarkwa and Takoradi.
The beneficiaries were grateful to Herrada Africa Group for the gesture shown to them in their time of need.
She said, subsidiaries of Herrada Africa Group blends the best in consulting, communications, real estate, food, health, luxury retail, and beauty and transport industries.
The Herrada Africa Group had made several donations to schools, hospitals, orphanages and individuals over the years.
With high preference for behind the scene philanthropy, the “Help her Quarantine’’ initiative is one of her numerous but by far her most public and extensive humanitarian act.
