THE Volta Regional Minister, Dr Archibald Yao Letsa has commended members of the Rotary Club of Ho for their immense and ceaseless contributions to development activities in various communities in the region, saying their patriotic values and service to humanity were worthy of emulation by other bodies and individuals.
“The projects selected for this year by the Rotary Club of Ho, for instance, are very impactful; from the renovation of a three unit-classroom block at Abutia Novisi, equipping the mechanic workshop of the Ho Central Prison, drilling of boreholes at Badzikope in the South Tongu District and the blood donationdrives will definitely improve the welfare of the people,” he said, at the recent 37th Presidential Ball of the club at Ho.
The club has undertaken more than 100 similar projects in the region over the years.
Dr Letsa said that when corporate bodies, individuals and service organisations got involved in nation building, the result would definitely be successful.
“This is why I very much appreciate the work you do as Rotarians; your commitment and passion to identifying needs in our community and finding sustainable solutions for the needs is something that must be applauded,” he added.
The President of the Ho Rotary Club, Mr Dzidedi Botey who is a financial officer said in his ball speech that the club would continue to do more for humanity.
Pursuant to that, he said that the Rotary Club of Ho was vigorously raising funds to embark on more projects to touch the hearts of those who needed help.
The Guest of Honour was Mr Victor Asante, Chief Executive Officer of FNB Bank and District Governor Elect, Rotary District 9102.
He said that Rotary involved the coming together of neighbours, friends and problem solvers who met, shared ideas, joined leaders and took action to better lives and created lasting change in society.
The FNB Bank donated GHS 5,000 while Mr Asante personally donated GHS 2,000 to the Rotary Club of Ho during the ball.
