Two Canada-Based Missionaries, Joseph and Heather Frimpong have donated four wheelchairs and a storage container to the Akenten Appiah-Menka University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development (AAMUSTED).
The donation is partly in response to a request to the benefactors by the AAMUSTED Students Representative Council (SRC) for support towards the SRC’s efforts at helping Persons with Disability (PWDs) in the University and partly out of the desire of the donors to support AAMUSTED.
The SRC recently launched a Special Fund to support the PWDs in AAMUSTED with a promise to source help in cash and kind from capable individuals and organisations to bolster the course.
Receiving the wheelchairs on September 14, 2021, the Acting Registrar of AAMUSTED, Mr. Michael Kofi Adu described Mr. Joseph Frimpong as a good friend of AAMUSTED. He recalled two instances when Joseph donated quantities of Christian Literature and academic books to AAMUSTED and thanked him for his generosity towards AAMUSTED.
He assured him that the University would ensure the proper maintenance of the “high-quality wheelchairs” and asked for God’s blessings for Joseph and his missionary team.
Earlier, handing the wheelchairs over to the outgoing SRC President, Mr. Richard Opoku, for onward presentation to the AAMUSTED Management, Mr. Joseph Frimpong, praised the SRC leaders for their thoughtfulness in deciding to support the PWDs.
He said an important component of their work as missionaries was seeking resources around the world to support the less-privileged. Therefore, he expressed the hope that he and his team could muster more items for the University in the future.
The Outgoing SRC President, Richard, thanked Joseph for his prompt response to the SRC’s appeal to him. He said, he and his colleagues were committed to seeking help to support AAMUSTED evolve as one of the best universities beyond the borders of Ghana.
