The Mohinani Group, through its premier water storage brand- Polytank, has donated tanks worth over GH¢32,000 to the Appiate community to help provide the residents with clean drinking water.
The timely gesture is in response to a national call by the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) to assist the victims with Polytanks to enable them get access to potable water following the explosion that occurred in the community two weeks ago.
The full trailer load of Polytanks were made up of four pieces of 10,000-litre tanks popularly known as Rambo 1,000 and six pieces of 2,500 litre Sumo tank capacities. The donation which was made to NADMO on behalf of the community formed part of the Group’s corporate social responsibility to ensure that all vulnerable and marginalized Ghanaians are provided with access to clean drinking safe water, especially in times of severe national disasters.
In a statement, Mr. Ashok Mohinani, the Executive Director of the Mohinani Group, expressed heartfelt condolences to the families of the fatalities of the disaster. Mr. Ashok also wished the speedy recovery to those injured and prayed for the total healing for all the affected within the community.
He emphasised that, as a brand, Polytank truly cares about the wellbeing of Ghanaians especially in improving access to safe drinking water. This, he added, was the company’s contribution to helping the country achieve Goal 6 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Mr. Ashok expressed Polytank Ghana’s commitment to help in rebuilding the Appiate community saying “our donation today is a testament of our brand’s promise to help alleviate the effects of the aftermath of the explosion”. He therefore urged the Chiefs and residents of the Appiate community to maintain the Polytanks in order to benefit future generations.
