Thursday; December 25, 2014; Accra: Mr. Joseph Nsonamoah, Chairman of the UT Group on Christmas Day distributed packs of food and drinks worth over 36,000 Ghana Cedis to beggars and other underprivileged people on the streets of Accra.
Dubbed UT Touching Lives, the event saw volunteers made up of about 150 UT staff, friends and family members serving people on some major streets of Accra distributing about 2000 packs of food and drinks to people found begging or selling on the designated streets on Christmas Day.
With the help of the Police, where the crowd mounted the police was at hand to assist. Designated as Chairman’s Christmas Day Outreach programme, the event was initiated by the Chairman of the UT Group about 12 years ago as a personal way of giving to the community on Christmas Day.
However, about eight years ago the entire company took up the project, still led by the Chairman and increased.
Often times the volunteers will end at the Accra Bostal Institute where they present some of the food packs and drinks and other goodies to the institute, however, this year the team decided to serve inmates in some Police cells around the Adabraka Area.
Also supporting the Chairman for the day were Mr. Martyn Mensah, CEO of UT Holdings and Mrs. Pearl Esua-Mensah, Deputy Managing Director of UT Bank as well as other senior management team of the various UT companies.
These are some of the pictures of the event.
